Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 months ago):
After 5 days on Ranitidine I had 6 really severe nose bleeds in 2 weeks had 3 cauterisations but another bleed today I also have cramp in my legs and pain in my kidneys. I was on Lansorazole for 14 years and could eat anything, but they have been stopped due to fear of fractures.
From this study (2 months ago):
I have had 2 ocular migraines with elevated blood pressure this month. Could it be the Zantac? I took one last night for heartburn and had an ocular migraine this morning. Lately I have had a lot of flushing of the face and wake up with my face flushed in the morning although my blood pressure has been normal. I have had heartburn since taking the Lopressor and Norvasc and that is why I started on the Zantac OTC. I used to have ocular migraines about 30 years ago and they were related to decongestants.
Carmie on Jan, 26, 2015:
I am wondering if any of the above drugs could be causing my flashing lights type migraine. I do not have any severe pain with this. Could it be drug interaction and which one is causing the flushing of the face and heartburn. It did not start until I started the Lopressor and Norvasc.
