You may be interested at these reviews (Write a review):

  • Ranitidine is bad juju
    Used 3-5 times per week for about 1 1/2 years. Noticed:
    shortness of breath
    contstricted throat
    chest pain/pressure
    heart palpatations
    dryness - more so than usual

    I quit taking it and felt much better within 2-3 days.
  • Methadone maintenance and lichen planus
    Have been on methadone maint. since 1973 (with two brief periods of non use).

    Have suffered from Lichen Planus for the last 5 years with slow but steady progression of symptoms. Do not know when exposed to Hep C (IV drug use since 1968)and have been exposed to biohazardous materials from my career (lab director, Senior Microbiologist) since 1975.
  • Polyuria associated with zantac
    I was prescribed Zantac 150mg before breakfast and before dinner. After two days, I felt tired and had polyuria (by weight change 650 mL). I had kidney pain so drank water with a tiny bit of salt. Felt very nauseous, but more water helped. Continued to sip water til kidney pain eased. Have discontinued Zantac. Kidneys stopped hurting after about 4 hours. Seem to be ok, now.
  • Treating copd and kidney disease (1 response)
    My biggest problem is trying to keep my blood pressure at 110 to 140 diastolic and controlling constipation.
  • I got pneumonia while taking topamax, obvious correlation
    I do not take all the medicines above all the time but I am using an implanted pump giving me less than 2mg of dilaudid per day, 75 mg effexor daily and usually buspar. Dr prescribed topamax within 4 days I was hospitalized with Pneumonia, stayed a week came home a week had a clear chest x ray and the next week I got it again and was hospitalized 9 days that time. I knew I had been on the med but could not remember the side effect that made me come off previously until i started it again 2 days ago and woke today with Pneumonia again. Last time my pulmonologist said that the med in combination with the antidepressant which is all I take right now relaxes me too much and it paralyzes my choking reflex causing aspiration of saliva and ultimately waking up sick as the bacteria laced fluid goes crazy in the moist conditions of the lungs.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • Symptoms have been going on for three years. Doctor's have done MRI's, CT's, Ultrasounds, and several lab test. They have yet to find any cause for the nausea, vomiting and dizziness. Only thing they have not tried is discontinuing some of the medicine.


  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • Had two heart attacks (mild) in the last 1 1/2 months, catherization done but too much blockage to tx, aortic valve only working 25%, another valve 50%, open heart surgery avoided due to risk factor. Indegestion is a pressure feeling every time she tries to eat and feels better when she burbs. Only occasionally has heartburn


  • From this study (3 years ago):

  • I just wanted to check to see if there is any known interaction with my medication....
