    I was a pretty calm and relaxed person until I started omeprazole which after taking it for about 2 weeks,I didn't realize that I was stressing and having anxiety due to this drug. but it kept taking it . I got worse and worse every time I tried to do something I would get terrible anxiety and depression and frustration and then I realized that there must be something about this drug that was causing it and I quit taking it. I felt a definite difference when I quit taking it I was not quite so stressed didn't have anxiety I'm still withdrawing from it but I feel like I'm a whole lot better than I would not recommend this to anyone

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

    I quit taking it and felt much better within 2-3 days.
  • Loss of voice and stomach issues
    Prescribed to take 2 - 300 mg tablets of Clindamycin prior to dental procedure to to knee implant done a month and half before dental procedure. Took two pills one hour prior and immediate severe burning of throat, esophagous and stomach with constant nausea. Still have symptons - ie loss of voice, low grade nausea. have had multitude of tests - ie. EGD's, monometry, transesophageal (with transmitter to determine extent of now reflux) Have to eat small amounts of food at a time. Have lost 23 lbs.

  • Nexium improves my constipation
    Started taking Nexium 1 week ago and I noticed improvement with my chronic constipation.
  • Palpitations when eating raw garlic
    After symptoms of a cold, I've been drinking the famous "garlic honey lemon" mixture to try to get rid of the cold and it actually worked pretty well.
    The first morning it didn't feel very nice to drink but I was ok.
    From day 2, I started to feel heartburn and heart palpitations, with a sort of headache as soon as I drank the mixture. Symptoms then disappear within a couple of minutes and I was fine for the rest of the day.
    This has been getting worse every morning, until this morning (day 5) where I had to kneel down and focus on breathing.
    I can't drink it anymore, my chest hurts and it gets quite scary.
    I usually don't eat a lot of garlic anyway, I don't really like it. I'm assuming it's the garlic creating the reaction, as lemon and honey are part of my daily diet.
  • Prednisone side effects (1 response)
    Took this for 6 days, tapering at the end to treat a rash caused by a spider bite. The heartburn started on day 1 but the other symptoms didn't begin until day 4. None we're severe but they weren't fun either. The blurred vision was worst.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • I take the Omeprazole (10+ years)in the morning and the Ranitidine (4-5 years) before bed to prevent night time vomiting while sleeping. I still have to supplement with Ant-acids periodically. I have been off several medications for over a year to include, Lisinopril, Simvastatin and Viagra which I chose to quit taken. I still have ED symptoms, but my main concern is short/long term memory loss. I have noticed over the last two years that I'll think of something that I want to look up on the internet. I'll sit down, open my netbook to do so and within the time the netbook is booting up, I'll have forgotten what I was going to search for. Long term hasn't been as noticeable but, I have noticed a decline in my mechanical knowledge.

  • orchidfusion on Dec, 13, 2014:

    I've had acid reflux for Many years and took omeprazole for it. I ran out of omeprazole and at about the same time was started on synthroid. Ever since starting the synthroid I've had issues with more stomach acid. I assumed it was only because I was off of the omeprazole and started drinking baking soda and water. Have done so for almost 2 1/2 months. Now, it's slowly gotten worse and also have discomfort to sometimes a throbbing type pain in my stomach area and tenderness lower than my stomach. After some reading I see that others have added stomach acid taking the synthroid. I was given the synthroid by a nurse practitioner after I'd mentioned I'd had hair loss, dry itchy skin ect. She told me I was 'borderline' for low thyroid so started the synthroid. I'm 59 years old female, take several meds. Getting a bit worried about the tenderness. Anyone else with this?
