- I'm looking for peope who have been or are on pantoprazole and who developed (severe) cyclic neutropenia
I started taking PantoPrazole 20 mg (once a day) some 10 years ago and was told 2 years later that I had to switch to Pantoprazole 40 mg (once a day). Since I've been taking Pantoprazole my neutrofile counts which were in de standard forks started to drop, slowly with the 20 mg version, steeply with the 40 mg version
For the last 2 years my percentage of neutrofiles has gradually dropped to percentages in the 1 to 15 % fork
I have cyclic neutropenia and my bone marrow is tentatively linked to Large Granuar Lymphocyte Syndrome. To fight that I've been on varying dosages of Cyclosporine (Neoral) - no significant influence on my neutrofile count after 3 months.
Because of the apparently low influence f Cyclosporine - after 3 months of high dosages my neutrofile counts still bounces between 1 and 10 %. That and the fact that Cyclosporine may have a lot of (some severe) side effects on you I'm in doubt what to do next, e.g. stop taking the Cyclosporine & stop taking the Pantoprazole mg and replace the latter with Ranitidine MAE 300 m and see if the non intake of Pantoprazole has any effect on my Neutrofile count.
Any help/suggestions re. the above would be gratefully welcome
- Has anyone taken brags vinegar with protonix ? was there any problem?
I am wanting to see about taking magnesium once a day for blood pressure. I was wondering if anyone does that? Also has anyone tried taking Braggs apple vingear while on protonix. How did it go? Or have you replaced protonix with Braggs apple cider vinegar. Lastly has anyone weaned off protonix? How did you do it?
- Does anyone taking isosorbide or ranexa have severe nightmares?
I have horribly, terrifying nightmares, every night. They are all variations on a theme of terror.
- How do you manage. can the rash go away.
I have had repeated rash flare ups directly after taking Pantoprazole for acid reflux. The rash goes away mostly and then soon returns within weeks and stays for weeks. I have been to numerous specialist and they can not come up with a cure that works and can not come up with a cause.
- How many/what percentage of older males who have had a stroke, have another while taking uloric?
Concerned as my Rheumatologist wants me to start using Uloric40 mg and while I see that their is a relatively small incidence of stroke occurring (unless you are part of the "small" group); I have been unable to locate statistics for those previous stroke patients that are now using or have used Uloric, and had another stroke.

- Skyrocketing cholesterol 6 mo on pantoprazole
My primary care physician prescribed pantoprazole 40 mg per day in mid November 2013 and at the same time gave me results of my lipid panel telling me I should improve my cholesterol and tryglyceride numbers. He also prescribed Omega 3 supplements 2000 mg/day, along with dietary modifications. In June 2014, my lipid panel was rerun. Cholesterol increased by 60, tryglycerides increased by 800. Yes, 800. HDLs dropped by 5. Cholesterol ratio was 9.0 despite my adherence to prescribed regimen. I had also gone to a GI to confirm stomach ulcer being treated by pantoprazole. Asked about long term use. He said as a PPI it was among the safest medications that could be prescribed and that I could take it indefinitely if needed. No one ever told me pantoprazole could increase cholesterol.
- Pantoprazole dry eyes
started at 5 days after starting the treatment. no other medications or suplements taken. tear drops do not help. putting a tiny amount of stJohn's worth oil at the bottom of the eyes provokes tears and gives a better result. will consider changing the medication for my acid reflux condition.
- Pantopraz sod 40mg,retaining alot of fluids
I am retaining a lot of fluids from my hips and down to my feet and believe its from taking pantoprazole,and I mean everything,its scary,has anyone been down this road?
- Mirena and iritis connection??
Was healthy 31yrway old with 3mothe baby when iritis began. It lasted nearly 15moas never fully healing before flaring again. Otho considered Methotrexate it was so bad and life altering buying was breast feeding. Maybe could have treated differently if not nursing but with my baby's GI issues breastfeeding and a strict dairy, soy, casein, whey-free diet was best option.
Meanwhile a few months into having Mirna I began with uterine cramping so bad I was unable to sleep. Chose to suffer through for I think about 8mo before getting it removed as I paid cash $1500 for the device placement and troubleshooting no thanks to insurance. Couldn't take it, finally removed. Last flare of iritis began shortly after removal so unsure if the two were related. I have no underlying inflammatory or other disease as proven by a full rheum work uptrying to figure out the causes of my pains.
Still puzzled. IUD is only real reliable birth control option for me now nursing baby #2, my body would not tolerate another pregnancy.

From this study (1 day ago):
I have severe neutropenia (cyclic) and wonder whether it can be caused by Pantoprazole - I'm on 40 mg/dag
From this study (2 days ago):
Post nasal drip, constantly clearing throat, coughing up thick, clear mucous. No trouble breathing. Had acute bronchitis in late November and severe hot flashes began a few months before. Had hip replacement on December 12, 2014 with general anesthesia.
From this study (2 days ago):
I have been having bladder contractions every 6-8 weeks over the last 2 years. I have been to an urologist who has looked inside the bladder and said it looked excellent. I have also had many urine cultures done which have come back negative. I have seen my GI doctor who just prescribed nortriptline to help calm the colon thinking this would help the bladder. I do not have colon pain. I have also seen an obgyn who gave me a vaginal cream to possibly help the bladder. No one seems to know what is causing the pain. I do have some urine retention at times but no burning while urinating. I am now wondering if it is a side effect of one or more of my medications. Thank you
