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...

omeprazole over pantoprazole
11 Replies RSS
advantages of omeprazole over pantoprazole ## There really is no benefit to using one over the other, they both work the same and are in the same class of medications, proton pump inhibitors. However, just like any other medication, one may work better for someone than a different one does. There is really no explanation for why this happens, but it does. Has your doctor recommended one of them? Here are links to both: ## Actually Pantoprazole is becoming more prescribed and the tendency is to make it more prescribed than Omeprazole. The effect of both proton pump inhibitors is similar, but Pantroprazole is more safe when combined with (some) other drugs, since it has a lower affinity for the cit. P450 than Omeprazole, an enzyme responsible for the metabolism of many drugs. You can find...

What does the "LEG" mean (20 MG TAB LEG)
1 Reply RSS
What does the "LEG" mean on the prescription bottle immediately following the dosage (20 MG TAB LEG)? This was for acid reflux medication, nothing to do with legs. ## I found the answer. LEG means Lower Esophageal-Gastrointestinal (symptoms, treatment). The medication was for severe heartburn and acid reflux.

what are the uses and side effects of nexpro 20.

Anybody know what this pill is? Have looker on various pill identification sites and can't find it. ## Hi Kristi, I understand that your description denotes squiggly lines ~ on either side of the "P".

Stomach ache and nauseated
1 Reply RSS
I'm not vomiting, just nauseated. I do not have much of an appetite, have cancer and am elderly. Is omeprazole 20mg good to take for this? ## Hello, Joan! How are you? Omeprazole does not treat nausea, as a matter of fact, it may actually cause nausea and stomach pain, as a side effect, according to the FDA. It is used to treat excess stomach acid that can cause conditions, such as heartburn, GERD, gastritis, and ulcers. How long has this been going on? Are you on any other medications? Have you eaten anything different recently?

Mylan 6150 vs Delayed Release Variety
1 Reply RSS
I had been taking the tan and beige prescription formula 20mg delayed release version of Omeprazole to treat my acid reflux for several months with no adverse effects. When I refilled the prescription this time, the pharmacy gave me the Mylan 6150, and after 3 days on it I developed a scary heart arrhythmia, so I stopped it immediately. The pharmacist argues that it is exactly the same medication; they just changed generic providers. Is this true? ## Hello, Lynn! How are you? Mylan Pharmaceuticals does list it as containing 20mgs of Omeprazole, but this is a regular release formulation, not a time released one, which might explain why you suddenly experienced side effects from taking it. The FDA does list bradycardia, tachycardia, palpitations, and hypertension as all being possible sid...
