Nexium Stopped Working
Maybe not acid: Nexium (esomeprazole) is a ppi, potent minimizer of acid production in the stomach. Several other ppis on market-all roughly equivalent, can take days some respond better to one than another. Make sure the problem is truly acid related, or not. Other issues including gall bladder, pancreas, celiac sprue, cardiac can cause similar symptoms. Don't know your history, meds, risk factors, etc. Follow up with doc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is it ok to abruptly stop taking Xanax (alprazolam) if i've been taking 2mg daily for 3 days only?
I've been taking Zoloft (sertraline) for 12 years. It has stopped working. Is there a better substitue?
There may well be: Finding that your ssri stops working after a period of time is not unusual. You can see a psychiatrist to assess your continued need for these medicines, and select another that may help you more. Also, you could add psychotherapy to your treatment. It can be a very important part of getting well. Your family doctor may have good referral sources, and www.Psychologytoday.Com does also. ...Read more
Chest flutters started while taking Domperidone. Stopped when medication discontinued. Any permanent damage caused?
Unlikely: Domperidone can potentially have the side effect of causing an arrhythmia which you may have detected as "chest flutters". I would advise that you avoid the medication in the future and let you physician know about the side effect that you had. That being said, it is very unlikely that any permanent damage was caused by what sounds to be a transient response. Again, avoid use in the future! ...Read more
50mg pristiq (desvenlafaxine) (depression anxiety) seemed to lose effectiveness after 3 months 100 stopped working after another 3 on 150 now will this keep happening?
Consider change: There is no evidence that anything over 100mg has more effectiveness in studies. MDs will try higher dosages as tolerability allows as off label use. I would consider adding a second medication depending on what residual symptoms recur, or try adding deplin. ...Read more
Changed my aciphex (rabeprazole) 20mg to Prilosec 40mg ! Took my last aciphex (rabeprazole) yesterday is it safe to start Prilosec today ?
Patient taking 20mg Lexapro and 150mg Wellbutrin for 4-5 months. Says the meds were working well, but recently seemed to stop working. Next steps?
Compliance issue?: You probably have already checked and asked pt if they are still taking Wellbutrin and lexapro. My experience points me at a non compliant pt 1st. Then if pt compliant since lexapro is max, I'd increase the Wellbutrin to 300mg in either SR or ER prep and re-eval in 6 to 8 wks if still no clinical improvement I would taper off lexapro add an SNRI duloxetine, instead future D/C Wellbutrin ...Read more
