Is there any difference between taking prescription Zantac 300 and 2 OTC Zantac 150?

I've been taking Zantac 300 for a hiatal hernia and acid reflux for years. We recently changed health insurance and the new insurance doesn't cover Zantac, so I started taking OTC Zantac. For the past week now, I've been having a lot of trouble (pain) with my hiatal hernia, so is there something different about the OTC Zantac and the prescription Zantac that would cause this? Answered by Dawne Boothe 1 year ago.

No, the medicinal ingredients are exactly the same, so taking 2 of the OTC Zantac is the same as 1 300mg prescription Zantac. As you know, Zantac is prescribed for acid reflux, so it won't help with the hernia. What happens is that the hernia puts pressure on your stomach which can make the reflux worse. If your hernia is bothering you, you should see the doctor to make sure that the hernia isn't protruding too far. Hope you feel better soon and Good Luck. Answered by Frederic Primavera 1 year ago.

There are the same medicine so if you are having more pain that before then something is going on and you need to see your doctor. Also why not consider getting your hiatal hernia surgically repaired if you are a good surgical candidate? Answered by Lloyd Batton 1 year ago.


Zantac 300 with klonopin: is this an okay combination?
i have been waking up choking completely or with difficulty breathing due to severe acid reflux, so i was prescribed klonopin for the panic. Another doc told me to take zantac 300 at night. Can the two be taken together? Asked by Hannelore Vandermark 1 year ago.

All research that I have done seems to show no interaction problems with these two medications. But may I say, HELL.......the Klonopin (clonazepam) seems to be a very extreme measure to deal with acid reflux. After all, the Klonopin is used to control panic disorders, seizures and the like. Unfortunately you're always going to be panicking when you feel like you can't breathe due to the acid reflux. Listen to the other doctor and just try the Zantac (Ranitidine) for the time being. They're fantastic for dealing with acid reflux. I have Crohns Disease get acid reflux and I recommend them very highly. If necessary, take your Zantac morning, noon & night and then get yourself referred to a Gastroenterologist who is more professionally equipped to investigate your reflux problems than an every day general practitioner. I tell you this because long term acid reflux can lead to even bigger health issues. Good luck! Answered by Ardelle Begnoche 1 year ago.

i'm in school right now for pharmaceuticals. if you feel that 300 is to much for you, than breaking it in half is no problem at all. i would talk to you doctor about getting a lower dose though if you feel that 300mg is to much. i'm guessing the only reason the doctor prescribed you 300mg is because of your weight. usually most doctors prescribe prescriptions based on a persons weight. i hope that helped you out some. :] Answered by Clarissa Wenrick 1 year ago.

I'm on 25 mg of prevacid and 300 mg of zantac/day, but I taste acid in my throat?
the tastes started after i started the meds. what's going on? Asked by Eura Everson 1 year ago.

Hi, just though I'd let you know --- I have been on 30 mg Prevacid Am, 30 mg Prevacid PM and 300 mg zantac PM for about 6 months and instead of improvedment I actually think it is worse. I also have severe osteoporosis, breast cancer survivor and Crohn's disease besides the gastritis/upper esophagitis (collarbone area)/acid reflux/PND from chronic sinusitis. It seems to be a no win situation with me. I have had a few days inbetween where I felt a little better but I can't figure out what was done differently. It bothers me mostly during the night and keeps me up towards morning. Since my overall health stinks and the fact I have lost weight doesn't help my osteo either. Also, I am convinced that the only osteo drug I can take and have been taking for the past 1 1/2 years has been making my stomach/acid reflux problem worse and worse. I did have a bit of a problem before but it was under control with 30 mg Prevacid in AM only. Try convincing the doc!!!!!! I can't stop taking the Evista as there is no other drug I can take for it so what do I do.....either I keep getting worse from the GERD, etc. or I die of osteoporosis and from what I hear that is a really painful way to go. I want to go back on HRT despite the breast cancer but no one will give it to me - that did not bother my stomach and kept my bones good. I know it won't build new bone but at least they won't get worse. I'd rather take my chances with that. Wish one of you could write me a prescription for it since I can't find a doctor that will. I can't take the proper Crohn's drugs either so I am on 10 mg Librium 4x/day or 5 mg Librium & 1 Librax 4x/day depending on how bad the Crohn's is any particular day. I have been on that for a long time and who knows - maybe that is contributing to it also. However, one is reluctant to stop the drugs and perhaps get another 8 hour bleeding from the recturm Crohn's attack again. Don't want that either. My Dad died from stomach hemorraging and that scares me Answered by Piedad Bayle 1 year ago.


Is it okay to break a zantac in half and just take half? (300 --> 150)?
Thank you for the info. My ENT prescribed the high dose because I (sometimes) suffer from laryngospasms at night, due to chronic gastritis. I take nexium 40 mg, twice daily, and zantac at night. Asked by Kalyn Vierling 1 year ago.

If you are supposed to take one pill a day you would normally take it once a day but taking half a pill twice a day should be OK. Some prescriptions actually direct you to swallow the pill whole which presumably means that you must not chew it before swallowing. Breaking a pill in half is not the same as chewing before swallowing but presumably you must swallow the half pill whole without chewing. Answered by Kristle Mignano 1 year ago.

Zantac 300mg?
Have you ever used this why is this prescribed; my doctor just gave me a prescription why not nexium? Is there a differance? Asked by Carlota Vasher 1 year ago.

Zantac is also known as Ranitidine which was the first of the "new" generation of drugs to control excess production of stomach acid. It's been around for about fifteen years now so is relatively cheap for a doctor to prescribe. It is well proven with few side effects so is cost effective. In my experience it is very effective although 300 mgs is at the top end of what one would normally prescribe, 150 mgs being the normal dose. Although it will relieve the discomfort of heartburn, ulcers, gastritis and to a degree prevent further deterioration it does not address the underlying cause which is often lifestyle related. My advice would be to try it but also to consider what you can also do to address the underlying causes of heartburn which are most commonly to do with stress, smoking, coffee, alcohol and recreational drugs. Chill out, dont smoke or drink alcohol excessively, give up the coke, ecstacy and speed, take more time, relax, let go of niggling things, worry less, drink more water and enjoy life. Good luck !!!! Answered by Selma Chavana 1 year ago.

zantac has Ranitidine.it is very commonly prescribed for hyper acidity cases.they are available as 150 mg and 300mg. May be your condition is slightly severe your doctor has started with 300 mgor maybe you were already using nexium he wanted to have a change and see the responce. Apart from taking medicines avoid spicy food stuff , carbonated drinks, alcohol, caffeine. try to have sound sleep. Answered by Catherina Trudgeon 1 year ago.

may be his preference and zantac is less expensive zantac is a histamine2 blocker it reduces the amount of acid your stomach produces it is used to treat and prevent ulcers in the stomach and intestines and for gastroesophageal reflux disease and other conditions in which acid backs upfrom the stomach causing heartburn Answered by Kelly Derfus 1 year ago.

It is prescribed when people are having symptoms of gastritis or ulcer--i.e. pain before eating, heartburn after. Nexium is really expensive and it is prescribed for heartburn when it is suspected that you have GERD (gastroesophogeal reflux disease). You doctor is probably trying to save you money, and see if this works first Answered by Vernie Resetar 1 year ago.


Can you overdose on Zantac?

Its very difficult to overdose on Zantac (Ranatidine). You'd have to take a huge amount to do any harm. All they do is stop your stomach from over producing Acid and the over the counter ones in particular are very weak xxxxxxxx Answered by Gil Dunson 1 year ago.

You can overdose on anything. Even vitamins. Damage to your liver, stomach, even coma or death could occur. Answered by Dinah Castellaneta 1 year ago.

Answered by Jeannette Molloy 1 year ago.

The Zantac and iron both can be constipating, so you might want to consider taking a stool softener or laxative if that happens. (On the other hand, Zantac can also cause diarrhea or loose stools, so maybe it will just balance out with the iron. You'll have to wait and see). Looks like you should cut back or out alcohol while you're on the Zantac, since both affect your liver. See below. If you have any of the major side effects, of course, you should talk to the MD who prescribed the Zantac. See below. GENERIC NAME: ranitidine BRAND NAME: Zantac DRUG CLASS AND MECHANISM: Histamine is a natural chemical that stimulates the stomach cells to produce acid. Ranitidine belongs to a class of medications, called H2-blockers, that block the action of histamine on stomach cells, thus reducing stomach acid production. PRESCRIPTION: yes GENERIC AVAILABLE: yes PREPARATIONS: Tablets (150 mg, 300 mg), Capsules (150 mg, 300 mg); Syrup (15 mg/ml) STORAGE: Should be stored at room temperature in a tightly closed container. PRESCRIBED FOR: Ranitidine blocks the action of histamine on stomach cells, and reduces stomach acid production. Ranitidine is useful in promoting healing of stomach and duodenal ulcers, and in reducing ulcer pain. Ranitidine has been effective in preventing ulcer recurrence when given in low doses for prolonged periods of time. In doses higher than that used in ulcer treatment, ranitidine has been helpful in treating heartburn and in healing ulcer and inflammation of the esophagus resulting from acid reflux (reflux esophagitis). DOSING: May be taken with or without food. Since ranitidine is excreted by the kidney and metabolized by the liver, dosages of ranitidine need to be lowered in patients with significantly abnormal liver or kidney function. DRUG INTERACTIONS: Antacids may decrease the absorption of ranitidine. Safety of ranitidine in children has not been established. Ranitidine is not habit forming. Ranitidine can interfere with the metabolism of alcohol. Patients taking ranitidine who drink alcohol may have elevated blood alcohol levels. SIDE EFFECTS: Minor side effects include constipation, diarrhea, fatigue, headache, insomnia, muscle pain, nausea, and vomiting. Major side effects are rare; they include: agitation, anemia, confusion, depression, easy bruising or bleeding, hallucinations, hair loss, irregular heartbeat, rash, visual changes, and yellowing of the skin or eyes.

Most positive results originate from legitimate, prescription use of the drug. Illicitly, the drug is occasionally diverted from legitimate prescriptions and sold on the streets. Technical Notes 1. Common cross-reactants: Prescription appetite suppressants such as Phentermine, other amphetamine-like prescription drugs; Ecstasy-like club drug called MDA (which is a metabolite of MDMA). In addition, there are several therapeutic agents, such as Benzphetamine, that metabolize to amphetamine (and methamphetamine) in the body and will produce positive drug test results. It is also important to note that amphetamine is a metabolite of methamphetamine and will appear in the urine of a person who has taken methamphetamine. 2. Current US SAMHSA “screening” cutoff is 1,000 ng/mL 3. Current GC/MS (industry standard) confirmation cutoff is 500 ng/mL. 4. Proposed changes in SAMHSA are: a. To lower the screening cutoff to 500 ng/mL b. Change target drug from D-amphetamine (historical) to D-methamphetamine c. Change the GC/MS confirmation to 250 ng/mL 5. Outside the US, amphetamine screening cutoffs may be 300 ng/mL. 6. INNOVACON manufactures amphetamine assays with cutoff levels of 1,000 and 300 ng/mL.

Is there any difference between taking prescription Zantac 300 and 2 OTC Zantac 150?
I've been taking Zantac 300 for a hiatal hernia and acid reflux for years. We recently changed health insurance and the new insurance doesn't cover Zantac, so I started taking OTC Zantac.

I've been taking Zantac 300 for a hiatal hernia and acid reflux for years. We recently changed health insurance and the new insurance doesn't cover Zantac, so I started taking OTC Zantac. For the past week now, I've been having a lot of trouble (pain) with my hiatal hernia, so is there something different about the OTC Zantac and the prescription Zantac that would cause this? Answered by Marisa Barkenhagen 1 year ago.

No, the medicinal ingredients are exactly the same, so taking 2 of the OTC Zantac is the same as 1 300mg prescription Zantac. As you know, Zantac is prescribed for acid reflux, so it won't help with the hernia. What happens is that the hernia puts pressure on your stomach which can make the reflux worse. If your hernia is bothering you, you should see the doctor to make sure that the hernia isn't protruding too far. Hope you feel better soon and Good Luck. Answered by Leonard Mcgeachy 1 year ago.

There are the same medicine so if you are having more pain that before then something is going on and you need to see your doctor. Also why not consider getting your hiatal hernia surgically repaired if you are a good surgical candidate? Answered by Waneta Rosica 1 year ago.


Zantac 300 with klonopin: is this an okay combination?
i have been waking up choking completely or with difficulty breathing due to severe acid reflux, so i was prescribed klonopin for the panic. Another doc told me to take zantac 300 at night. Can the two be taken together? Asked by Elisha Cleavenger 1 year ago.

All research that I have done seems to show no interaction problems with these two medications. But may I say, HELL.......the Klonopin (clonazepam) seems to be a very extreme measure to deal with acid reflux. After all, the Klonopin is used to control panic disorders, seizures and the like. Unfortunately you're always going to be panicking when you feel like you can't breathe due to the acid reflux. Listen to the other doctor and just try the Zantac (Ranitidine) for the time being. They're fantastic for dealing with acid reflux. I have Crohns Disease get acid reflux and I recommend them very highly. If necessary, take your Zantac morning, noon & night and then get yourself referred to a Gastroenterologist who is more professionally equipped to investigate your reflux problems than an every day general practitioner. I tell you this because long term acid reflux can lead to even bigger health issues. Good luck! Answered by Francis Shamburger 1 year ago.

i'm in school right now for pharmaceuticals. if you feel that 300 is to much for you, than breaking it in half is no problem at all. i would talk to you doctor about getting a lower dose though if you feel that 300mg is to much. i'm guessing the only reason the doctor prescribed you 300mg is because of your weight. usually most doctors prescribe prescriptions based on a persons weight. i hope that helped you out some. :] Answered by Cherelle Cecil 1 year ago.

I'm on 25 mg of prevacid and 300 mg of zantac/day, but I taste acid in my throat?
the tastes started after i started the meds. what's going on? Asked by Fernando Szerlong 1 year ago.

Hi, just though I'd let you know --- I have been on 30 mg Prevacid Am, 30 mg Prevacid PM and 300 mg zantac PM for about 6 months and instead of improvedment I actually think it is worse. I also have severe osteoporosis, breast cancer survivor and Crohn's disease besides the gastritis/upper esophagitis (collarbone area)/acid reflux/PND from chronic sinusitis. It seems to be a no win situation with me. I have had a few days inbetween where I felt a little better but I can't figure out what was done differently. It bothers me mostly during the night and keeps me up towards morning. Since my overall health stinks and the fact I have lost weight doesn't help my osteo either. Also, I am convinced that the only osteo drug I can take and have been taking for the past 1 1/2 years has been making my stomach/acid reflux problem worse and worse. I did have a bit of a problem before but it was under control with 30 mg Prevacid in AM only. Try convincing the doc!!!!!! I can't stop taking the Evista as there is no other drug I can take for it so what do I do.....either I keep getting worse from the GERD, etc. or I die of osteoporosis and from what I hear that is a really painful way to go. I want to go back on HRT despite the breast cancer but no one will give it to me - that did not bother my stomach and kept my bones good. I know it won't build new bone but at least they won't get worse. I'd rather take my chances with that. Wish one of you could write me a prescription for it since I can't find a doctor that will. I can't take the proper Crohn's drugs either so I am on 10 mg Librium 4x/day or 5 mg Librium & 1 Librax 4x/day depending on how bad the Crohn's is any particular day. I have been on that for a long time and who knows - maybe that is contributing to it also. However, one is reluctant to stop the drugs and perhaps get another 8 hour bleeding from the recturm Crohn's attack again. Don't want that either. My Dad died from stomach hemorraging and that scares me Answered by Glen Doose 1 year ago.


Is it okay to break a zantac in half and just take half? (300 --> 150)?
Thank you for the info. My ENT prescribed the high dose because I (sometimes) suffer from laryngospasms at night, due to chronic gastritis. I take nexium 40 mg, twice daily, and zantac at night. Asked by Jamila Achekian 1 year ago.

If you are supposed to take one pill a day you would normally take it once a day but taking half a pill twice a day should be OK. Some prescriptions actually direct you to swallow the pill whole which presumably means that you must not chew it before swallowing. Breaking a pill in half is not the same as chewing before swallowing but presumably you must swallow the half pill whole without chewing. Answered by Franchesca Kalauli 1 year ago.

Zantac 300mg?
Have you ever used this why is this prescribed; my doctor just gave me a prescription why not nexium? Is there a differance? Asked by Solange Braunstein 1 year ago.

Zantac is also known as Ranitidine which was the first of the "new" generation of drugs to control excess production of stomach acid. It's been around for about fifteen years now so is relatively cheap for a doctor to prescribe. It is well proven with few side effects so is cost effective. In my experience it is very effective although 300 mgs is at the top end of what one would normally prescribe, 150 mgs being the normal dose. Although it will relieve the discomfort of heartburn, ulcers, gastritis and to a degree prevent further deterioration it does not address the underlying cause which is often lifestyle related. My advice would be to try it but also to consider what you can also do to address the underlying causes of heartburn which are most commonly to do with stress, smoking, coffee, alcohol and recreational drugs. Chill out, dont smoke or drink alcohol excessively, give up the coke, ecstacy and speed, take more time, relax, let go of niggling things, worry less, drink more water and enjoy life. Good luck !!!! Answered by Neoma Phippard 1 year ago.

zantac has Ranitidine.it is very commonly prescribed for hyper acidity cases.they are available as 150 mg and 300mg. May be your condition is slightly severe your doctor has started with 300 mgor maybe you were already using nexium he wanted to have a change and see the responce. Apart from taking medicines avoid spicy food stuff , carbonated drinks, alcohol, caffeine. try to have sound sleep. Answered by Galina Barriault 1 year ago.

may be his preference and zantac is less expensive zantac is a histamine2 blocker it reduces the amount of acid your stomach produces it is used to treat and prevent ulcers in the stomach and intestines and for gastroesophageal reflux disease and other conditions in which acid backs upfrom the stomach causing heartburn Answered by Emelda Handke 1 year ago.

It is prescribed when people are having symptoms of gastritis or ulcer--i.e. pain before eating, heartburn after. Nexium is really expensive and it is prescribed for heartburn when it is suspected that you have GERD (gastroesophogeal reflux disease). You doctor is probably trying to save you money, and see if this works first Answered by Emelia Pih 1 year ago.


Can you overdose on Zantac?

Its very difficult to overdose on Zantac (Ranatidine). You'd have to take a huge amount to do any harm. All they do is stop your stomach from over producing Acid and the over the counter ones in particular are very weak xxxxxxxx Answered by Daryl Gruby 1 year ago.

Answered by Lowell Skahan 1 year ago.

The Zantac and iron both can be constipating, so you might want to consider taking a stool softener or laxative if that happens. (On the other hand, Zantac can also cause diarrhea or loose stools, so maybe it will just balance out with the iron. You'll have to wait and see). Looks like you should cut back or out alcohol while you're on the Zantac, since both affect your liver. See below. If you have any of the major side effects, of course, you should talk to the MD who prescribed the Zantac. See below. GENERIC NAME: ranitidine BRAND NAME: Zantac DRUG CLASS AND MECHANISM: Histamine is a natural chemical that stimulates the stomach cells to produce acid. Ranitidine belongs to a class of medications, called H2-blockers, that block the action of histamine on stomach cells, thus reducing stomach acid production. PRESCRIPTION: yes GENERIC AVAILABLE: yes PREPARATIONS: Tablets (150 mg, 300 mg), Capsules (150 mg, 300 mg); Syrup (15 mg/ml) STORAGE: Should be stored at room temperature in a tightly closed container. PRESCRIBED FOR: Ranitidine blocks the action of histamine on stomach cells, and reduces stomach acid production. Ranitidine is useful in promoting healing of stomach and duodenal ulcers, and in reducing ulcer pain. Ranitidine has been effective in preventing ulcer recurrence when given in low doses for prolonged periods of time. In doses higher than that used in ulcer treatment, ranitidine has been helpful in treating heartburn and in healing ulcer and inflammation of the esophagus resulting from acid reflux (reflux esophagitis). DOSING: May be taken with or without food. Since ranitidine is excreted by the kidney and metabolized by the liver, dosages of ranitidine need to be lowered in patients with significantly abnormal liver or kidney function. DRUG INTERACTIONS: Antacids may decrease the absorption of ranitidine. Safety of ranitidine in children has not been established. Ranitidine is not habit forming. Ranitidine can interfere with the metabolism of alcohol. Patients taking ranitidine who drink alcohol may have elevated blood alcohol levels. SIDE EFFECTS: Minor side effects include constipation, diarrhea, fatigue, headache, insomnia, muscle pain, nausea, and vomiting. Major side effects are rare; they include: agitation, anemia, confusion, depression, easy bruising or bleeding, hallucinations, hair loss, irregular heartbeat, rash, visual changes, and yellowing of the skin or eyes.
