does tacta cause weight gain

I've been taking Tecta for over a year, am bloated,gaining weight, craving sugar, experiencing hip pain. Also have an overactive bladder and this seems to be worse. Was taking Zantac with no trouble but doctor changed me to Tecta. Can I just stop taking tecta or must I wean off it? ## There is nothing that should require you to taper this medication, since it is just a proton pump inhibitor that is used to treat, or prevent conditions such as GERD, ulcers, and gastritis. The FDA does list these issues as being among its possibly side effects, you may also experience nausea, dizziness, stomach pain, and diarrhea. What reason did your doctor give for changing your medication?

Oblong orange pill M 126

I found an oblong orange pill marked with M 126 that was put in with my zantac 1mg. What is it used for? ## Is the marking possibly H 126? If so, the tablet is manufactured by Camber Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 40mgs of Pantoprazole, which is also used to help reduce the amount of acid produced by the stomach, but it is not the same as Zantac. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach pain, diarrhea, and flatulence. Have you informed your pharmacy of this issue?

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 los

zantac + bioflu (took it twice in a day)

Hi, this happened to me last december. My period was already late by 1 month didn't take pt yet, then I got sick one day as in really sick that my stomach really aches plus vomiting, headache and high fever. My mom gave me bioflu and zantac and let me drink it at one time, morning and then evening and then after two days i had severe abdominal pain, then back pain and i bled (not the normal blood girls get every period) and my lower back is really painful. And it's not the normal flow and then after 3 days, i got my period, the normal period we get and it lasted for 5 days. That's why i know it's the period and not what i had 2 days after i took the meds. I just wanna ask does it mean i had a miscarriage? Because it slips on my mind that i MIGHT'VE been pregnant when...
