Can Stopping/Quitting Lansoprazole Cause Daily Headache?

Stats: Male, 33. Bigger guy, 6'2 265. Gallbladder removed in 2007. Other conditions include sleep apnea/social anxiety, some neck and shoulder tension from a lot of computer work. Otherwise decent health overall. Hello to anyone who thinks they can help!! I have been on 30mg Lansoprazole for the last 3-4 years (prescribed) because I had my gallbladder removed in 2007 and had a slew of stomach issues for the first 5 or so years since the surgery, most of which was caused by increased acid. Lans was a godsend drug at first, but over time I started noticing that it seemed to sometimes make me feel weird or give me an upset stomach. Over the last few months I have really been improving my diet and eating better and noticed I was getting less and less acid and indigestion. Because my ins...

Aurobindo Pantoprazole gluten free?

Does Pantoprazole manufactured by Aurobindo contain any gluten? ## It appears that both the 20 mg (NDC 65862-559) and 40 mg (NDC 65862-560) tablets contain the same inactive ingredients: - Calcium Stearate - Crospovidone - Ferric Oxide Yellow - Hydroxypropyl Cellulose - Hypromellose 2910 (3 Mpa.s) - Mannitol - Methacrylic Acid - Ethyl Acrylate Copolymer (1:1) Type a - Sodium Carbonate - Triethyl Citrate - Ammonia - Ferrosoferric Oxide - Ferric Oxide Red - Isopropyl Alcohol - Butyl Alcohol - Propylene Glycol - Shellac As such, they should not be problematic for people with gluten sensitivity unless there was cross-contamination during the manufacturing process.

Taking expired Ranitidine

Hi. My daughter has dental surgery tomorrow and her Dr now says she needs to take Pepcid ac or similar "acid blocker" the night before. This surgery was scheduled with no warning. Now with blizzard its dangerous to go out. We have ranitidine 150 mg exp Jan 2012, its now Feb 2014. Is it still effective? Should she take two (300 mg)? There's no way to get fresh OTC meds. We have TUMS that is still good. Thanks! ## I accidentally or say foolishly gave my 3 yr old daughter expired ranitidine syrup as 3 does of 4 ml each. She is having severe stomach pain n bloody mucusy stool from before and I think it worsened it. What to do? Is it severe?

Sucralfate and Rablet Taken Together?

Can Rablet and Sucralfate be taken together? I've been taking Rablet for more than two years with just a gap of a week or two in between. Will I have any side effects? Or can I carry on taking it? ## I have been unable to find any specific information on taking these two medications together. Perhaps your pharmacist or prescribing doctor can help you with this query. Good luck. ## Rablet is reported to contain the active ingredient Rabeprazole. I did not find interactions listed between Rabeprazole and Sucralfate [1]. But as Lesia stated, you should double check with your doctor or pharmacist so that they can cross reference any other medications that you are taking.

I'm on pantoprazole 40 tablets can this make your stomach go out more than it use to

I've had a running stomach for the last 2 years been on different tablets to stop it, went back to the doctor because my stomach is still running ( like yellow water ) he prescribe me pantoprazole 40 tablets since I've been taking this tablets my stomach goes out more than it use to is this normal ## Have you been tested for celiac disease? Protonix is great at treating symptoms, but people with gluten sensitivity need to be properly diagnosed and treated to resolve the symptoms. ## I assume that you're asking if it can cause stomach/abdominal bloating, as a side effect, and if so, then the answer is yes. The FDA also lists it other side effects as possibly including nausea, stomach pain, headache, and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with?
