I take Lexapro, Protonix,Lisinopril,whats this stuff doing to me. i feel week tired, bloated all the time.?
Asked by Kayleigh Sobotta 1 year ago.

Protonix is a proton pump inhibitor, it stop or slows acid secretion to prevent conditions such as acid reflux, and heal peptic ulcers and also can be used for H. pylori infection. Lexapro is a type of drug known as a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor which means it slows the seratonin pathways, it is used as antidepressant. Side affects can be mild, to severe..do not take with a monoamise inhibitor type drug. Lisinopril is a class called ace inhibitors, or angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors this is used for high blood pressure or symptoms of a heart attack. Fatigue may be caused by SSRI, do to the fact it effects neurons in the brain and slows the serotonin signals. Bloating may be caused by Protonix due, to the fact that it may cause the stomache to empty because of it's low acidity causing air to build up. Proton Pump inhibitors have also been known to decrease absorption of vitamin B12 and calcium. I would recommend taking these supplements, in fact taking B12 might help with your fatique because it helps create new red blood cells which take on more oxygen rich blood. If these problems may persist talk to your doctor and he may consider reducing the dose of medication causing these side effects. Answered by Clinton Simoes 1 year ago.

Congratulations! You're finding out why chemicals don't belong in the body when the only problem you have is you're thirsty. The body was designed to use water to heal itself, not those other drugs. Your problems are the result of chronic dehydration. Click the link below and follow it exactly for 5 days. You should see an impressive improvement in how you feel. If not, you can always rely on your drugs. Answered by Ewa Drainville 1 year ago.

That's normal for that pill. I know a lot of people who've been on it, including myself (not anymore) But watch out! They take away your sex drive. Sometimes for life, which is why many doctors and phychiatrists won't prescribe it. They worked terrific for my anxiety/slight depression. But I've never done research on it, though I doubt it'd say anything about the 'drive'. Answered by Claude Soto 1 year ago.

DOes Protonix cause Vomiting?
I will take take them if that is a high percentage risk. F-That, seriously. Asked by Maryland Lusco 1 year ago.

It can be serious. Like mentioned by someone else, weight gain can becoe a problem as well as aspiration into the lungs. Once you see the Pediatrician, he may refer you to a Pediatric GI. Most likely, your daughter will be given Reglan (the most perscribed reflux med for children/babies) and something like Zantac. The Reglan actually heals the damage, and the Zantac eases the pain. I know how scary this is for you. I didn't deal with reflux myself; but my daughter was born premature, and many preemies face reflux as an issue. I'm familar with this information b/c of support groups I belong to for preemies. The good news is, more often than not; babies outgrow the reflux within in the first year or so. I hope your daughter feels better soon and her appointments go ok. I wish your daughter the best. Answered by Sherilyn Lehmberg 1 year ago.

Will Protonix prevent me from absorbing other meds?
I am taking Protonix for ulcers, I have just started taking Chantix to stop smoking. Will the Protonix prevent me from absorbing the Chantix? I have found a pproblem taking it with other medications and just don't know if it will work for the smoking cessation. Asked by Kimberlee Mcdermitt 1 year ago.

Protonix will ease the stomach lining that is irritated from the ulcers. Protonix is only recommended for short term use. Since Chantix is relatively new, there may or may not be any interaction (s). I would ask the Doc that prescribed the medicine or even ask your Pharmacist. But, more than likely, it shouldn't cause a reduction in it's effect ( Chantix). Take the Protonix as directed and then wait an hour or two before taking the Chantix. Your stomach lining needs to heal, not become further irritated. I hope this helps and Good Luck with kicking the habit. Answered by Larae Quintin 1 year ago.

any meds that are made to help absorb acids or help with stomach conditions absorb other meds taken within 2 hours of one another. Be careful with protonix, I was on it for ulcers as well, it worked great for a few months, then they increased my dosage, now it has an opposite effect on me, it causes severe abd pain. Just thought I'd let you know. Hope you have better luck! Answered by Elissa Conkle 1 year ago.

the active ingredient of protinox belong to a group of drugs called proton pump inhibitor a very strong one although so yet protinox have the least interaction ant up till now there is no reported cases of interaction but for chantix the only drug interaction is drug thin er it is not suitable for pregnant or lactating or renal disease the drug drug interaction is not fully documented as it is still new drug it is also alter some drug pharmacodynamic so may affect drug metabolism and bio availability it may cause nausea and vomiting diarrhea or constipation for more info go for www.chantix.com hope it could help Answered by Jin Kuehler 1 year ago.

How to take protonix?
i was just given protonix and on the bottle it says to take it 30-60 min before a meal. however, when i was on this medicine last yr i could take it right before i ate? why would this change. and my dr. never told me she was writing the prescription like this to the pharmacy Asked by Julienne Shriver 1 year ago.

Proton pump inhibitors like Protonix are usually given before meals to have maximum effect. Protonix inhibits the production of protons or stomach acid. Meals are a significant stimulant for stomach acid production. Protonix should be taken prior to the meal to inhibit this acid production. Protonix is usually in a delayed release tablet that takes about 30 minutes to be absorbed and have its effect. This is why it is recommended to be given 30 minutes before a meal. Your previous prescription likely should have also been taken 30 minutes before meals. It is also possible that you were not taking the delayed release formulation and taking an immediate release enteric preparation. Answered by Justa Kitty 1 year ago.

Protonix is one of a class of drugs called proton pump inhibitors (PPI). Other drugs in this class include Prilosec, Acidflex and Prevacid. These drugs are known to effect different people in different ways. I personally found the Protonix did not work well for me at all. I had lots of terrible heartburn when I tried the medication. On the other hand, Prilosec controls my heartburn well. Much better then any of the others. Also, if you take a PPI for a period of time your stomach will increase its acid production capacity. Then, it you suddenly stop taking the medication, you will have worse symptoms. Answered by Cassie Gutter 1 year ago.

You are not taking your medication correct, that is why you're experience a relapse on your heartburn. Are you actually experiencing chronic heartburn? Protonix is one of the available medication for people who experience chronic heartburn, and should be used continuously for at least the entire duration that the doctor prescribed it for. It cannot be taken on an "as needed" basis because then the medication WILL NOT WORK. If you don't experience heartburn unless you eat too much or eat "trigger foods". In that case, I would recommend medications like ranitidine (Zantac) and/or antacids so you can take them on an "as needed" basis. Also, if hearburn medications don't work for you even if you are taking them correctly, then it means you may be experiencing more serious GI conditions. I would recommend that you speak to your doctor about your current symptoms and your medication regimen to see if you are actually on the right medication for your condition.

Protonix is not a medication that you need to be weened off of. You can stop without it harming you. If you feel that the Protonix is giving you a bad reaction there are several other medications you can be prescribed for acid reflux. In the mean time you can go to the pharmacy and pick up some Prilosec or Zantac 150mg which should help you if you don't want to take the Protonix. Good luck. Answered by Darlene Bolig 1 year ago.


What company makes protonix, I need assistance in getting medication?
Asked by Brandi Salloum 1 year ago.

Protonix is usually prescribed and pretty expensive (even if you do have insurance). Since protonix is usually prescribed for acid reflux, the easier and cheaper way is to opt for over the counter medication such as prilosec or nexium (they work just as well) and are available at your local drug/grocery store.

My doctor just prescribed Protonix for my acid reflux. I started taking it yesterday afternoon (once a day). If anyone has taken it, how long did it take before you felt relief? I have been feeling miserable for months and haven't been able to do anything for it since I was pregnant. I gave birth three weeks ago, so now my doctor put me on Protonix. I'm counting the minutes until I feel better again. Thanks for your help! Answered by Cora Brevo 1 year ago.

I took Protonix for a short period because I have acid reflux. It wasn't very effective at all. I started taking Nexium and I don't have a problem. Any acid-inhibitor, Nexium, Zantac, Prilosec, etc. usually takes a week to start working. If it's been longer than a couple of weeks without relief you should ask your doctor for something else. Pregnant women get hiatel hernias more than the general population because of the fetus pushing on the area, but after the baby is born most mothers return to normal. Answered by Rubi Dugue 1 year ago.

Hi there. I have taken it in the past. It took about a week to start feeling better so give it some time and you should be OK. If you've had a chronic reflux issue you may have some damage to the esophagus and it's that damage that is likely hurting rather than the refux (I hope that made sense). The Protonix should help reduce the acid and it coming up so that your esophagus can heal. Hope you feel better soon! Answered by Chi Ambuehl 1 year ago.

i use to take protonix. i started feeling better in just a few days. it really helped me a lot, so hopefully it will do the same for you. Answered by Milford Yuricic 1 year ago.

Hi yesterday my doctor prescribed Protonix (pantoprazole) for my acid reflux..So I went to the pharmacy to get it and the pharmacist said it was very expensive around $90 and told me I can get Omeprazole instead which is over-the-counter for only $17 and that the two medicines are the same so I got the cheap one. And I was wondering from experience (if anyone knows). Is Omeprazole and Protonix (pantoprazole) the same thing. Would taking Omeprazole be the same as taking Protonix? Answered by Ha Brazee 1 year ago.

The drug are different but similar. They are both proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). They are both equally effective. Some people will have better results with one or the other. There is nothing wrong with taking omeprazole instead of protonix. You might want to inform your doctor that you decided to try omeprazole. Answered by Major Garr 1 year ago.

Protonix is not a medication that you need to be weened off of. You can stop without it harming you. If you feel that the Protonix is giving you a bad reaction there are several other medications you can be prescribed for acid reflux. In the mean time you can go to the pharmacy and pick up some Prilosec or Zantac 150mg which should help you if you don't want to take the Protonix. Good luck.

What company makes protonix, I need assistance in getting medication?
Asked by Rosamond Naysmith 1 year ago.

Protonix is usually prescribed and pretty expensive (even if you do have insurance). Since protonix is usually prescribed for acid reflux, the easier and cheaper way is to opt for over the counter medication such as prilosec or nexium (they work just as well) and are available at your local drug/grocery store.

Anyone on Protonix?
My doctor just prescribed Protonix for my acid reflux. I started taking it yesterday afternoon (once a day). If anyone has taken it, how long did it take before you felt relief?

My doctor just prescribed Protonix for my acid reflux. I started taking it yesterday afternoon (once a day). If anyone has taken it, how long did it take before you felt relief? I have been feeling miserable for months and haven't been able to do anything for it since I was pregnant. I gave birth three weeks ago, so now my doctor put me on Protonix. I'm counting the minutes until I feel better again. Thanks for your help! Answered by Brenna Beresky 1 year ago.

I took Protonix for a short period because I have acid reflux. It wasn't very effective at all. I started taking Nexium and I don't have a problem. Any acid-inhibitor, Nexium, Zantac, Prilosec, etc. usually takes a week to start working. If it's been longer than a couple of weeks without relief you should ask your doctor for something else. Pregnant women get hiatel hernias more than the general population because of the fetus pushing on the area, but after the baby is born most mothers return to normal.

Hi there. I have taken it in the past. It took about a week to start feeling better so give it some time and you should be OK. If you've had a chronic reflux issue you may have some damage to the esophagus and it's that damage that is likely hurting rather than the refux (I hope that made sense). The Protonix should help reduce the acid and it coming up so that your esophagus can heal. Hope you feel better soon! Answered by Leroy Hazlewood 1 year ago.

i use to take protonix. i started feeling better in just a few days. it really helped me a lot, so hopefully it will do the same for you. Answered by Karima Vergari 1 year ago.

Hi yesterday my doctor prescribed Protonix (pantoprazole) for my acid reflux..So I went to the pharmacy to get it and the pharmacist said it was very expensive around $90 and told me I can get Omeprazole instead which is over-the-counter for only $17 and that the two medicines are the same so I got the cheap one. And I was wondering from experience (if anyone knows). Is Omeprazole and Protonix (pantoprazole) the same thing. Would taking Omeprazole be the same as taking Protonix? Answered by Donella Staie 1 year ago.

The drug are different but similar. They are both proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). They are both equally effective. Some people will have better results with one or the other. There is nothing wrong with taking omeprazole instead of protonix. You might want to inform your doctor that you decided to try omeprazole. Answered by Sharyn Logosso 1 year ago.
