Doctor insights on:
Throat probs for weeks, severe heartburn & nausea for days, cardiac r/o. Insufficient relief w/protonix, bmx, zofran, Zantac, (ranitidine) pepto, & avoidances.
I have bad heartburn right now I took Zantac 50 and pepto are these two together mess me up or am I ok?
Heartburn: Zantac has a fairly rapid onset of action compared to ppi's (like prilosec, nexium) used for heartburn, but that dose may be insufficient. There is no problem taking peptobismol at the same time, but Tums or maalox may be more effective. Peptobismol may cause black discoloration of your stools. ...Read more
Is it safe to take Zantac (ranitidine) or pepto bismol to help with heartburn caused by taking clindamycin? I have no other side effects at the moment.
I have been throwing up for a few weeks and had severe stomach pains. Vomiting doesn't relieve pain. Tums, Pepto, and Zantac (ranitidine) have done nothing.?

You might be pregnant and suffering from morning sickness (not just limited to mornings). You might have acid reflux, stomach ulcer, gallstones, pancreatitis, diabetes, or other things. Make an appt so that you can get tested right away! ...Read more

Yes: It seems that you have acid reflux and gaseous eructations not controlled with zantac (ranitidine). This can indicate a complication developing.
