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?

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.

Are amneal pantoprazole 20 mg tablets gluten free?

Pantoprazole and lowered platelets

My platelet counts have been jumping down very fast at times lately, then going back up - so far. Has anyone had experience with low platelets when taking pantoprazole or another PPI? If so, how did it behave over time? So far mine are not dangerously low, but I'm nervous. ## Pantoprazole has been known to cause that in some people that take it, as a side effect, according to FDA reports, though it isn't common. Other side effects may include nausea, stomach pain, diarrhea, and headache. Are you on any other medications? Have they considered any other reasons for this to be occurring?

Tecta

I was wondering if by using the drug Tecta if it causes weight gain or causes bloating or retaining water? ## From what I can find, this contains the active ingredient Pantoprazole, which is a proton pump inhibitor that is used to reduce the amount of acid produced by the stomach to treat or prevent conditions, such as heartburn, ulcers, GERD and Gastritis. And it can cause some gas and bloating, as a side effect, however, it is rarely known to cause water retention, but it has happened in some people. Have you contacted your doctor? If it is causing you to experience fluid retention, you will probably need to try a different medication. ## I was taking tecta and have also been stablized of methadone for 20 years..When taking the tecta it almost killed me combined with the methadone.

Loss taste may be gerd

I lost my sense of taste a few weeks ago. Mostly sweets. It comes back sometimes but always goes back out. I also have a sore throat and phlegm. Smell appears fine. The doctor thinks I may have GERD because of the throat issues and I do burp a lot. When I do burp there is no taste to it like heartburn but he says that there doesn't have to be. I took my first pill today and today was a decent tasting day. Within four hours of taking the pill my taste was gone again. I how this is a coincidence. I had tried 75 mg of Zantac before and didn't see a difference either way. Could taking the Tecta be making my taste worse if my issue is in fact not gerd? Also can it cause constipation? Antibiotics for example give me severe constipation. I'm starting to get very depressed with the ...
