Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Can i take both zofran and melatonin at roughly the same time?
Melatonin for GERD and sleep. Zofran for vomiting and nausea.
- Can i take zantac with 20mg of rivaroxaban?
I was wondering if anybody could help me on this i'm currently taking Rivaroxaban Zantac with Rivaroxaban(20mg)(Daily)to treat DVT.
The thing is whilst doing this i'm suffering greatly with Heartburn, Acid Reflux.
Can i take the Zantac to soothe my pain with Rivaroxaban?
- Side effects of cimetidine(tagamet)? should i worry?
Hello, I'm 17 years old, I have taken Tri-nessa(Birth control) since January of last year(2014) with no side effects.
I've been having an Acid Reflux problem for a few years(Since I got my Gallbladder removed in 2011). It got really bad by the end of last year (2014) and I've been having multiple problems since Urgent Care diagnosed me with Gastritis. I then assumed I had heart problems due to a lot of issues/deaths with other people and their hearts. Got an EKG, it came out fine. Now, for Gastritis, they put me on Protonix, I was taking it up until this past Wednesday when my Doctor put me on Cimetidine(Tagamet), she also gave me info to go see a GI doctor. Thursday afternoon (Around 1:50-2:50)I had gotten really dizzy like my blood sugar dropped immensely. Ate some candy in hopes to make it better, didn't help (My family has a history of Diabetes). I begged my school to rush me to the ER, but they didn't see anything physically wrong with me, therefore, they said no.
And so, I went home with my friend and relaxed. Since then, I've been having these 'Tension headaches' that start in my left sided neck and travel up into my head(It switches sides sometimes, or just wraps all around and into the back) for about 3 to 5 hours putting a really hard pressure on my head like someone is crushing it under a wheel, sometimes it feels like I'm being jabbed with a small needle in random spots too. I tried taking Ibuprofen to remove some pressure of the headache, but to no avail. Friday, I went into the ER. They did bloodwork, took a urine sample, did a chest x-ray, and did three EKGs on me. They didn't find much else but a teeny hiccup in my EKG - nothing to panic about - they said, but if I want to feel comforted that my heart is fine, I can see a cardiologist (Going to see one tomorrow). Saturday, I started noticing a swelling over my left breast, next to my armpit. It, and my breasts, have little pains that surge through them every now and again. I also noticed that around my throat to my collarbone, on my chest (left & right), over my shoulder and to my back neck has started to burn and ache as well. The aching will send pains down my spine and make doing anything seem annoying. ON TOP of that, I've been having random coughs, sometimes my face has pressure on it, and Sunday morning I couldn't stop sweating in my sleep. I suspect I slept the wrong way on my neck and the nerves are causing the pain in my chest area, or my acid reflux is causing severe heartburn.
My big question is, should I go back into the ER and have them test my breasts and neck/spine, or should I kick back and relax in knowing it's just a few side effects from my Cimetidine and a little ache in my neck from sleeping wrong that will go away shortly? (I read it can cause tenderness in the breasts, usually for guys, but maybe girls too?)
My family doesn't have much money, and my father thinks I'm being a hypochondriac, but I know I have a lot to live for so I'm praying it's really just nothing.
