Heart Burn / Indigestion Overview

Heartburn, also known as acid indigestion,[2] is a burning sensation in the central chest or upper central abdomen.[3][4][5] The pain often rises in the chest and may radiate to the neck, throat, or angle of the jaw. Heartburn is usually due to regurgitation of gastric acid (gastric reflux) into the esophagus and is the major symptom of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).[6] In about 0.6% of cases it is a symptom of ischemic heart disease.[7] Contents 1 Definition 2 Differential di...

If it safe to take OMEPRAZOLE that expired Oct. 2014. . . now it's Jan. 2015? ## Hello, Shirley! How are you? It doesn't get dangerous, once it's expired, but it does start to lose effectiveness, so it may not work as well as it did, when it was new. Overall, if would really be best to dispose of it and pick up a new supply, unless your doctor okays your taking it. The FDA classifies this medication as a PPI, it is used to reduce the amount of acid produced by the stomach. Typical side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, stomach pain and flatulence. Is there anything else I can help with? ## My omeprazole is out of date by a year didn't notice till today and I havnt been feeling to good this wk could it be the meds ## IS IT SAFE AND EFFECTIVE TO T...

i found a light green RP 103 round tablet in my teens room what is it is it legal or not ## ITS EQUATE CALCIUM CARBONATION A OTC DRUG ## @Juana Alexander, Just to confirm, the pill in question is indeed Equate brand Ultra Strength Antacid Tablet. It contains (1000 mg) Calcium Carbonate. This medication is used to treat symptoms caused by too much stomach acid such as heartburn, upset stomach, or indigestion. Learn More: Calcium+Carbonate Details I hope this helps! ## This pill is an antacid. However that being said it may seem odd that a teenager would want or need one but if they are on ADHD medication such as Adderall they may be taking this because it extends and enhances the absorption and effects of that drug. It is effective enough that depending on the amount your teen ingests of...

I stopped taking Omeprazole after a 1 1/2 years
1 Reply RSS
I am a 56 year old woman that was giving omeprozole for acid reflux and gerd. It really did help. I thought it was the best thing ever until here 1 1/2 years later, the Dr was sending me to a heart specialist because my heart rate has climbed so high as well as my blood pressure. I've also had incontinence this year that has made my life miserable. Little did I know until reading more about the omeprazole that all of these problems had come from taking it. I stopped the omeprazole and with in days my heart rate begin to come down, from 123 beats per minute to 87 bpm. My blood pressure also dropped into a normal range, and the best thing is no more incontinence. I didn't realize this medication was causing all of this mess. My Dr. tried to say it wasn't the omeprazole, but th...

Hi. I'm 26 years old and for 7 months have been seeing my doctor for a stomach ulcer. I took Nexium pills to treat it for a few months which worked well for the most part. I hadn't had symptoms for 2 months about until I began experiencing pains and burning once again, this time a little worse. Last week, I visited my doctor an he prescribed me omeprozale to try out. I only took it for 4 days. Today is the 5th day which I did NOT take the pill this morning because the past 4 days I was experiencing side effects that I only now saw were symptoms from taking omeprazole. I've experienced (and still am in some ways): upset stomachs with slight diarrhea. Nothing major. Loss of appetite, lost 4 lbs. nausea in mornings and when I had tried to eat, body trembling for two days in and...

I have been taking Tecta for a year or so ! I just visited the health canada site and they advise that this drug should not be prescribed for longer then 6 to 8 weeks? Why was I not advised of that from my doctor..Lately I have been experiencing heart palpitations. I remember being on a drug prepulsit and having the same symptoms and then finding out that this drug was linked to heart problems ..I am determined to find another solution to my acid problem does anybody have any solutions besides drugs ??? Thanks, ## HI, Aurele! How are you? Yes, these medications are only intended for short term use. Studies have shown that long term use can cause an increased risk of hip fractures. As to solutions that don't involve drugs, it really depends what you were taking it to treat. I can be ...

ic omeprazole

Can ic omeprazole cause one's blood pressure to increase dramatically? ## Omeprazole is a Proton Pump Inhibitor, used to help reduce the amount of acid your stomach produces to treat conditions such as heartburn and GERD. That said, there is nothing listed about it doing this. It is always a possiblity, though, medications do affect everyone differently, but there is no way to say for sure. Have you asked your doctor about it? ## Theoretically, it definitely could. You see, nitric oxide is a substance that the body creates and that regulates blood pressure. It can only be created in the presence of an acidic stomach. Reducing acid in the stomach definitely decreases nitric oxide production and, therefore, can increase blood pressure. See this page to see how reducing acid in the sto...
