I have gastritis n' gerd. I am taking omeprazole. Read that it is not good to take it longterm. Took for 1 mo. I plan to take probiotics instead. Shld I?
A bit more complex!:
I agree that it is not wise to take omeprazole longterm. While probiotics may help, that alone is likely not enough to resolve your gastritis & GERD. See http://www. Naturalnews. Com/036336_PPIs_acid_reflux_side_effects. Html

I recently asked about taking a multivitamin with probiotic while taking omeprazole and domperidone, could you tell me is it better to take the multiv?
Can take both: You can take a multivitamin with omeprazole and domperidone. Omeprazole can decrease absorption of certain vitamins/minerals such as B-12 and iron. A multivitamin can help counteract those vitamin/mineral losses. A probiotic is different than a multivitamin. It helps to populate the healthy bacteria in your gut, which can help prevent constipation, diarrhea, and other illnesses. ...Read more

You can: Some labels say it's best to take probiotics on an empty stomach, before a meal that contains some fat. Http://tinyurl. Com/mot8f55 however, you have more stomach acid in that condition -- and some probiotic species don't survive that although others do.

Would taking a probiotic naturally prevent my acid reflux? I'm currently on prescription Omeprazole 40mg 1x/day.
Many mornings around 7 a.m. very nauseas often with diahrrhea. Male, so not pregnant. Omeprazole and probiotics haven't helped.
AM nausea: Consider testing for H pylori. It is a bacteria associated with gastritis GERD and the omeprazole will not work unless you are treated with antibiotics (usually 2 or 3 together) or consider ultrasound to check gallbladder as well as pancreas. Avoid alcohol, check liver tests and for hepatitis C ...Read more

I have problems swallowing certain foods I take Prilosec 40mg twice a day along with Zantac 300mg at night will a digestive enzyme w/o probiotic help
Globus versus...: A ball or lump sensation in your throat past which you can easily swallow is called "globus"--a functional problem that acid blockers likely won't help. Nor would it likely address esophageal spasm, dysmotility, or eosinophilic esophagitis. Have you had manometry? Might want endoscopy for definitive biopsy +/- address peptic stricture that may constrict the swallowing tube & benefit from dilation. ...Read more
Probiotics: Yes, the two products are safe together. ...Read more
The answer...: ....To what will help with a distended abdomen depends entirely on the cause of the distention. Probiotics are helpful with a lot of digestive issues, if you take them regularly. The two meds you mention reduce stomach acid and are unlikely to help with distention. If this is happening often, look to your diet for a solution. This problem is often diet related. ...Read more
Does the probiotic Digestive Advantage decrease stomach acid? Don't want to have too less of acid because I just came off of omperazole for 1 month.
No: Probiotics have many benefits for digestive health but generally are not knows to decrease stomach acid. Stomach acid can kill many of the probiotics we take but Digestive Advantage is enteric coated which protects it from stomach acid, with the coating not dissolving until after it passes through the stomach. ...Read more

Is it safe to take a multivitamin, omega-3 supplement, probiotic, vitamin D3, vitamin K2, and my SSRI antidepressant together daily?
Why do you need so many supplements. If you are taking a mixed diet, , none of the supplements other than vitamin D3 are doing you any good.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.

Is it safe to take a multivitamin, probiotic, fish oil omega-3 supplement, apple cider vinegar, and psyllium husk for fiber together daily?
These are safe though I wouldn't take them all at once. I advise the multivitamin after breakfast, the probiotic at the start of a meal, the fish oil after lunch or dinner, apple cider vinegar in water separate from meals and the psyllium at bedtime.

Maybe but it depends: Neither epocrates. Com nor drugs. Com found any drug-drug interactions. Several new studies suggest that levothyroxine is best when taken on an empty stomach at night.

Omeprazole 20mg cannot take wif iron tablet (sangobion)? I already take for 2mths together with iron tablet but wif 2hrs apart. Scare iron not absorb
You're OK: Iron is absorbed in a more acid environment, that's why you need to separate the pills. But ppis like Omeprazole can lower your acid so far that they impact iron absorption all day. They also can make osteoporosis worse, lead to infections like pneumonia and colitis, and shouldn't be taken forever. If you have reflux, you should consider an antireflux procedure or surgery. ...Read more
