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

Tight and achy throat, liquid feeling in throat also, ranitidine not working what could it be?

Ranitidine: Your symptoms don't appear to be due to GERD and thus you get no relief from ranitidine or other antigerd medications like nexium. Unless you have a new viral throat infection, your symptoms may be stress related or due to pharyngolaryngeal reflux, or, postnasal drip. An otolaryngologist is best qualified to evaluate and advise you. ...Read more

Take Ranitidine 300, aciphex and carafate liquid for gastritis and diverticulosis. Is this the best treatment options?

No but: If helps go for it, usually a ppi [proton pump inhibitor ] like Prilosec more powerful but if caused it with too much alcohol or pain meds like aspirin or aleve/advil in heavy doses or worst yet smoking stop it all; keep stools soft with prune juice, fruits./dark green vegetables and fiber like raisan bran and coffee to clear the stools good or get worse diverticular. ...Read more

I have GERD and I have no ins. What is the best OTC medication for that? I already take 300mg of Zantac (ranitidine) a day.

Baking soda: If cost is an issue, and your are already taking 300mg of generic Zantac (ranitidine) a day, then you could occasionally try taking a level teaspoon of baking soda in about two ounces of water for further relief. This is a home remedy that has worked well of decades, but is not promoted in standard medical practice.

Can I give my 8 year old daughter Zantac (ranitidine) or Prilosec OTC?

Can I give my 8 year old daughter Zantac (ranitidine) or Prilosec OTC?

Depends: These medications are used down into infancy. The choice to use will be based on her weight. I would start with Zantac (ranitidine) first if she is able to swallow pills. I usually start with 75 mg at night. If she is very petite you may consider visiting with your MD for a prescription of the liquid version for a more accurate dose. You may also try TUMS or Mylanta for some temporary relief as well. ...Read more

Male 22, doc suspects mast cell disease. I use Zantac (ranitidine) for my acid, can I take ceritrizine OTC myself until I get tested? Is it safe to take both?

Male 22, doc suspects mast cell disease. I use Zantac (ranitidine) for my acid, can I take ceritrizine OTC myself until I get tested? Is it safe to take both?

Mast cell disease: Mast cells disease can cause acid reflux and hives and itching and you can use zantac (ranitidine) and Cetirizine to treat the symptoms. Not sure if your doctor wants to do a skin test, but zyrtec will affect it, so check with your doctor first. If the doctor only wants to do blood tests, you can go ahead and take both, but check with your doctor first. ...Read more

Will OTC Nexium24hr help acid reflux caused by hiatal hernia? I currently take 300 mg of Zantac QD and it helps very little, if at all.

Will OTC Nexium24hr help acid reflux caused by hiatal hernia? I currently take 300 mg of Zantac QD and it helps very little, if at all.

The two are very: Different drugs. Zantac an H-2 blocker blocks the acid at the "target" and is effective for some people NEXIUM stops the acid from being released altogether...the latter is usually more effective in relieving reflux but takes longer. Get on it and be patient. About a week should result in improvement in almost 100% people!
Hope this helps

My son is 17mths, 40lbs & healthy he takes zyrtec qd with Zantac (ranitidine) bid & Pulmicort 0.5mg 1qd. What OTC can I get for cough/congestion for him?

Cold meds in child: Over the counter cough and cold preparations are no longer FDA approved or recommended for children under the age of 2. Since your child is asthmatic, the best way to treat his cough is with his asthma and allergy medication regimen (including albuterol) and following up with his pediatrician if symptoms persist or worsen. ...Read more

Hi, so taking too many tums for heartburn is not good but also taking otc zantac (ranitidine) for periods longer than 14 days is not good. What other meds are safe?

Hi, so taking too many tums for heartburn is not good but also taking otc zantac (ranitidine) for periods longer than 14 days is not good. What other meds are safe?

The PPIs.: OTC medications like Prilosec or Prevacid (lansoprazole) are stronger than what you have been taking. But the fact remains that if your symptoms are not relieved after a week or two of medication you need to see a doctor to confirm your diagnosis and see if any formal investigative testing may be needed. ...Read more
