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?

Peach pill R750 or R150 - looking for picture of this pill

I found this round peach colored pill (not scored) that looks like an R 750. I do not see anything on the back as it is old and worn down. I was on heartburn meds a year ago. ## There is a tablet with the marking of R150 that matches this description. It is manufactured by Dr. Reddy's Laboratories and they list it as containing 150mgs of Ranitidine, which is used to treat, or prevent heartburn, gastritis, and ulcers. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Trying to identify pill; small, oval, peach, Z on one side, other side says 25 mg

ranitidine tablets uniqueimprint 1p254 color300mg

I need to know if this generic for this pill is troposphere if I am taking the right medication. ## Hello, Carolyn! How are you? No, the generic is exactly what you stated, Ranitidine, the name brand for it is Zantac. It is an antacid. I could not find anything listed under the name Troposphere. Can you please double check the name and spelling? Thank you! ## I’ve been taking Acidil which is an all natural drug for heartburn, bloating, upset stomach & acid indigestion. It may not be as good as those others but it does help with no interactions. Manufacturer name is Boiron.

I just wanted to know if there were any recalls for ranitidine 150 mg (IP 253) for 2017? ## There was a recall for the syrup manufactured by Actavis, but that is all I have found for this year, so far, according to the FDA recall list. Have you experienced some problem with this medication? The FDA warns that this medication may carry the risk of causing side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, stomach pain, and flatulence. ## Has Kroger recalled its Kroger Heartburn Relief 150 mg Ranitidine with a National Drug Code of 30142-600-01? ## Has Avkare NCD (ndc 42291-724-60) Ranitidine 150mg tablets marked IP 150 been recalled?

Wiil Ranitidine Produce A False Positive For Methamphetimines In Hair Follicle Test And Where Is The Proof

While I was pregnant I was prescribed to take ranitidine for heartburn. After my child was born I took a urine test that came up negative. Cps sent these sample off and said I tested positive for meth. I submitted to a hair test on my child and a nail test on myself. The results were positive for meth. The Metabolites were very low in both of us but the amphetimine levels were high, but I had ephedrine during the c section. Will ranitidine cause a false positive in a hair test and where is the documented proof? They have taken my newborn away from me its five days now without touching or seeing her. I am desperate to get my baby back. If a doctor responds please be willing to submit documentation in writing. Thank you to anyone with the answer. ## This is terrible!!! And yes zantac does...

Ranitidine 150 mg tablets

Is ranitidine still safe to take after the expiration/discard date? Mine is 10/10/12. ## Hello, Linda! How are you? Most medications, such as Ranitidine, don't get dangerous when expired, but they do begin to lose efficacy after that point. Thus, the older they are, the less they are going to work. Learn more Ranitidine details here. It would really be best to just dispose of the expired and purchase new. Are there any other questions or concerns? ## I was on omeprazole for about 2 and a half years, and on Rapeprazole for 10 years for acid reflux. My last endoscopy revealed fundic polyps so I stopped taking the omeprazole and my GP put me on Ranitidine 150mg x2 daily. Have been taking them for for 5 days now. It doesn't suppress the acid as well as the omeprazole do and on top o...

Ranitidine 15mg/ml (75mg/5ml) syrup and gluten intolerance

Is Ranitidine 15mg/ml (75mg/5ml) syrup manufactured by Silarx gluten free? I have celiac disease and am allergic to gluten, but can't find any information online about it. ## First off, every SINGLE person I've ever met who claimed to suffer from celiacs was full of crap. The ACTUAL incidence of this disease is so minute it's almost impossible to know two people organically who DO have it. Furthermore it's certainly so rare that there's no reason a store could make.enough money to offer an entire gluten free section. People need a hobby I guess. ## Maybe you should actually do some research on celiac disease. My 6 year old daughter was just diagnosed with BLOOD WORK and ENDOSCOPIC BIOPSIES by a medical doctor (not a keyboard doctor such as yourself). There is also a ...

Ranitidine - gluten free?

I was prescribed Ranitidine 150 mg manufactured by Amneal. Is it gluten free? I've been having stomach pain since I started it. ## I have to break Amneal 300 mg tabs in half and my throat gets sore. I have been told by the pharmacist and the doctor this is fine to do. May I say how dare BCBS limit me to 90 days only per year of Protonix because it costs more; sure I could appeal it.

Is there anything else I can help with? ## My acid reducer (ranitidine 150) expired on 09/2017. How long can it be kept & used or do I just need to get rid of it?
