I'm a 27yr old male, 5'5", 140lbs, and have had a slight burning sensation in between my shoulder blades on the right side of the spine right after I swallow, and I feel it right before burping. I'm on 10mg of Celexa and taking Zantac (ranitidine).
Zantac (ranitidine): As prescribed, yes.Get a more detailed answer ›
No: Ranitidine (like omeprazole) inhibits the liver enzyme 2c19 that Celexa (citalopram) requires for its metabolism. The combination could cause a build-up of Celexa (citalopram) in your system, exposing you to risks of serotonin syndrome and heart rhythm disturbances. I do not recommend using these two together. ...Read more

Been on ranitidine 150mg for almost a month once a day. I'm about to start 10mg of celexa (citalopram). Do I need to wait?
Can 150mg of ranitidine be taken with 10mg of celexa (citalopram)? Been on ranitidine for about a month and now starting celexa (citalopram)
Probably: That is a relatively safe dose of Ibuprofen for most people, and should be ok to take with the medications you mentioned, but any medication can have side effects, and especially in combination with other medications. So take it with food and watch for any unusual side effects (especially unusual gruising or bleeding), contact your doctor if any new symptoms develop. ...Read more

Is it Safe to take day quill while on 10mg celexa (citalopram) 100mg gabapentin and 150 mg of ranitidine?
Yes, but. ..: I would recommend treating cold symptoms more conservatively. The active ingredients of DayQuil are acetaminophen (Tylenol), dextromethorphan (a cough suppressant) and phenylephrine (a decongestant). If anxiety is part of the reason you take Celexa and gabapentin, phenylephrine could make you more anxious. You would do better to use a nasal spray like Afrin to avoid the systemic effects. ...Read more
Antiacid stomach med:
Zantac (ranitidine) is a histamine-2 (h2 blocker) which blocks acid secretion in the stomach. It can be used for esophageal reflux
(gerd) or other general hi acid states. It may be safer to use long-term than the other popular acid blockers (ppi's) e.g. Prilosec. Interestingly, since Zantac is a histamine blocker it can also be used for 'allergy' or hives. ...Read more
Yes: There are now 4 types of histamine receptors. Zantac (ranitidine) acts on the h2 receptor resulting in blocking stomach acid thereby treating heartburn. Allergies are treated with h1 blocking type medications including claritin, (loratadine) zyrtec and allegra. Some medications have both actions to block both h1 and h2 receptor. For anaphylaxis, zantac can be added for it's effect on blood vessels. ...Read more
Not exactly: Zantac (ranitidine) is an h2 (histamine) blocker that is typically used for ge (acid) reflux.

Zantac (ranitidine) and GERD:
yes, if it works. But, please do not continue using this drug if your symptoms persist or worsen.
The goal is to be wise about diet and exercise and weight and the types of calories you consume so that you do not have gerd at your young age that persists month after month.
Cigarrettes, chocolate, red wine and caffeine can all make gerd worse. ...Read more
Yes: Zantac (ranitidine) is actually used to counteract the irritation from taking advil. If you are taking advil on an ongoing basis it will probably not help with tomach pain (counteract the irritation effects). But if you have stopped the advil zantac (ranitidine) will help any irritation causing the discomfort to heal more quickly than it would do without any treatment. ...Read more
Uncommon: Zantac (ranitidine) is an h2 receptor blocker (a different histamine receptor). A very common side effect of Zantac (ranitidine) is nausea, GI upset and diarrhea. If you are experiencing these, then it is not an allergy but rather a side effect of the medication. Although an allergy is very unusual for this medication, it is still a possibility. See an allergist. ...Read more
