Could Zantac Cause Strange Abdominal Pain?

I used to drink a lot of alcohol. Everytime I was drinking for too many days, there was nausea, tachycardia, feeling heart beats all over my abdomen while resting and loss of appetite, so I assumed taking zantac would cause these symptoms to go away earlier while I'll quit alcohol for a few days to make sure they will.

So, two days ago I started taking the pills. I took the first one along with one bottle of whiskey, and then new symptoms started instead of the old ones to go away: I have stomach pain in certain spots. I never knew stomach could cause pain only in a little spot, like it's a blade. The pain was mainly underNEATH my left rib cage and right in the diaphragm, but it would occassionally travel to other certain little spots of my abdomen too, as well as the left side of the chest.

Could zantac cause these symptoms instead of relieving the ones caused by alcohol? It's not really my conclusion, but I had never experienced these symptoms before I take the first zantac pill (mixed with alcohol). I had taken zantac before for the same reason, but never in large doses or combined with whiskey.

I'm thinking that the pain was most likely caused by the whiskey and not the Zantac.

It sounds like the alcohol has just been ripping your stomach up, you may have gastritis, or an ulcer starting. Pain in the area you've described is often due to gastritis, which is similar to having the entire stomach turned into one giant ulcer.

Taking a medication like this along with alcohol is just a waste of the medication, you aren't giving it any chance, at all, to do its job. it is an antacid and you're mixing it with booze that causes tons of stomach acid.

I don't want to be rude, but trying to treat a stomach issue, while you're still drinking just isn't logical and it isn't going to work.

Have you consulted your doctor?

You need to figure out what the exact problem is and discuss your treatment options, which will more than likely involve not drinking for awhile.
