Zantac At Night
Can you take prilosec and nexium (esomeprazole) together? Can I take zantac at night after taking prilosec in the afternoon?
Drug interactions: Prilosec is a brand of generic omeprazole. Nexium is a brand of generic esomeprazole, which is left mirror image of omeprazole. Therefore, you only take one, not both proton pump inhibitors (PPI). Zantac is brand of generic ranitidine, which is an H2 blocker, which isn't as powerful as PPI but can be used in conjunction w/PPI. Try lifestyle modifications to avoid acid reflux: http://goo.

Is Dexilant (dexlansoprazole) 60mg in the morning and Zantac 150 at night safe to take and if so for how long?
Safe to take:
These two medications inhibit the release of acid in your stomach. The acid does have an important role in digestion. The ppi meds (dexilant) have an adverse effect on calcium absorbtion in the body and therefore can contribute to the development of osteoporosis.

Is it recommended to take Prilosec in the morning and Zantac (ranitidine) at night for complete acid relief of GERD?
See your doctor.: If you are initially treating presumed acid reflux, Prilosec 20 mg once each morning about 20 minutes before eating any food is a good start. If it does not completely relieve your symptoms after two weeks, however, or if they recur after stopping the Prilosec, then I would seek out treatment long term through your family doctor. Anti-reflux measures are important too. Good luck. ...Read more
Had nissen in July of 16. Still hear gurgling up after swallowing at night in bed. Symptoms during day 0. Take Zantac only at night (effective enough) or a poi during day as well? Is Zantac alone effective. I suffer from bile reflux.
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

Dyspepsia after stomach flu 2 months ago. Dexilant 60 mg for 2 weeks. Zantac 300mg at night. How long for Dexilant work 24/7? How long dyspepsia last?
Dyspepsia: Are your symptoms related to reflux or hyperacidity? If so, these medications should offer relief quickly. If you're referring to postmeal bloating and belching or bile reflux, they may not be effective. Try following a bland, fat free diet, avoid alcohol, caffeine, nicotine and take mylanta 1/2 hour after meals and at bedtime. Take either deliant or zantac daily.

On protonix (pantoprazole) 40mg twice a day with Zantac 300 at night and its not working. Had an endoscopy with f.I.C.E and it showed only mildly lax les. Symptoms are only in throat. Sore and lump. Stomach is ok.
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

I have a 3 month old daughter. She has been very raspy since birth. Zantac (ranitidine) for acid reflix did not work. Gets worse at night. What could it be?
Consultation: There are many possible conditions that may be associated with these symptoms. I agree that laryngomalacia is one distinct possible cause.

Why do I get heartburn almost every time I eat? It's a lot worse at night. Wake up in night nauseous and need Zantac (ranitidine).
GERD: You may have GERD that is not responding to ranitidine. If you take your ranitidine at night, and take an alternative like omeprazole or lansoprazole in the mornings, and your heartburn resolves, then it's likely GERD. But there are conditions that can contribute, and with a history of thyroid cancer you should have your thyroid stimulating hormone checked. Ask your doctor for more information. ...Read more
