Can I take pantoprazole-nexium) a year beyond expiration date. I've tried Zantac (ranitidine) for gers and am getting lot of gas pains. Endoscopy in 2 1/2 weeks?

You better don't: Any medication has so named shelf life. That mean that medication still answer to its chemical specification and expected pharmacological effect. Beyond that time point is uncertainty. You may not expect adequate effect from expired medication. There might be potential problems as well. I'd not advise you to take your chances. Go and get new prescription. ...Read more

Should be fine: These both work to lower stomach acidity. Taking too many will just waste the pills, but not cause any harm. Hopefully your heartburn is gone. ...Read more

On 40mg pantoprazole and 150mg Zantac. Doc has me on this for 3 months for gerd. Is it normal to be on this long. Tired of taking pills?

Chronic GERD: It is not unusual for patients to require long term medicine to get GERD symptoms under control and then to maintain that remission of symptoms. Many patients are not able to go off medicines completely. The goal would then be to get down to the least amount of medicines which controls you symptoms well. Anti-reflux precautions help. Good luck. ...Read more

Which are safer to use, PPI's or H2 blockers for heartburn? Hear bad things about Pantoprazole, so I'm thinking of trying Zantac, what are side effects?

Safety: More information about harmful side effects of taking long term ppi's are being published in the medical literature. At this time I feel that long term use of h2 blockers like zantac and pepcid are safer. Your pharmacist can advise you about latest information on your medications. ...Read more

Took Pantoprazole for 2weeks ending of 2weeks still had burning throat at night. Got switched to Zantac (ranitidine) & not working well. Best medication treatment?

See your doctor.: If your symptoms returned after two weeks of pantoprazole, you may need it longer-term. I do not recommend taking it long term unless it has been prescribed by a physician, however. I would return to see your gastroenterologist to discuss it further. In the meantime, follow anti-reflux precautions well. Good luck. ...Read more

Suffering from long term acidity & Food/Liquid reflux to food pipe. Taking Zantac. Now, Dr gave me Pantoprazole 40 mg. It sorted the acidity & reflux somehow but every evening, I'm feeling bit nauseous. No vomiting or pain but an urge of wet burping.?

Suffering from long term acidity & Food/Liquid reflux to food pipe. Taking Zantac. Now, Dr gave me Pantoprazole 40 mg. It sorted the acidity & reflux somehow but every evening, I'm feeling bit nauseous. No vomiting or pain but an urge of wet burping.?

Burping: The meds that you mentioned both tell the cells lining the walls of your stomach to reduce the AMOUNT of acid they produce. Stomach acid can still move up the esophagus. You can try raising the head end of yr bed. A more definitive solution would be to have surgery (a Nissan Fundoplication). Check out on www. Mayoclinic. Com or www. Johnshopkins. Com. Good luck! ...Read more

My 14 year old just started pantoprazole 40 mg. Yesterday. He's been having trouble swallowing and sore throat. Zantac (ranitidine) no good. How long until better?

My 14 year old just started pantoprazole 40 mg. Yesterday. He's been having trouble swallowing and sore throat. Zantac (ranitidine) no good. How long until better?

PPI medications: Pantoprazole and other meds like it are very good at calming the symptoms of acid reflux, and work much better than Zantac, (ranitidine) Pepcid, etc. Symptom relief usually occurs in 3-4 days. Your son's difficulty swallowing and sore throat may be unrelated to his acid reflux symptoms. You should contact his doctor about it as may have a throat infection. ...Read more

Options: You are on a pretty good reflux regimen right now. If it's not working, you could increase your medications, change medications to other proton-pump inhibitors or think about the possibility of a nissen fundoplication. Make sure your gastroenterologist knows that the above isn't doing the job. They can make some changes before you have to consider the extreme of surgery. ...Read more

Yes: It is certainly possible that you have gastritis due to the anti-inflammatory that you've been taking daily. Stop the naproxen, and see your doctor to make sure that you don't have any evidence of gastric bleeding. Continue the Protonix (pantoprazole) and zantac. ...Read more

I take celexa and protonix (pantoprazole) together. I've noticed I am having more acid reflux and the celexa is a new rx. Should I change the protonix (pantoprazole) earlier?

Celexa (citalopram) and reflux: Gastrointestinal symptoms (including reflux exacerbation), as well as mild nausea, frequency, loss of appetite, or sour stomach are common symptoms on beginning an SSRI (like celexa). The good news is, in most cases, these side effects pass in about 3 days, with no intervention. If your side effects last longer, call your prescribing MD. Always call your doc before you make any med changes. ...Read more

Need schedule recommendation taking aspirin, plavix, prednisone, protonix (pantoprazole). I'd like to know in which order to take first, all together or hours apart.

Timing of Meds: I tell my patients to take Prednisone in the AM, less likely to cause insomnia. Protonix (pantoprazole) should be taken before a meal. Plavix should be taken at the same time every day. Can take the Rx spread out, 2 a day or all at once ...Read more

Yes.: However, you may take them farther apart than half an hour. You can take the Protonix (pantoprazole) an hour before breakfast, the Junel after supper and the Celexa at bedtime. There is a warning about birth control pills in depressed individuals so make sure you tell your psychiatrist that you are on BCP. It will also help if you do not go to bed immediately after a meal. ...Read more
