I am a 46 year old white female. I have been alternating taking Trazadone and Benadryl for insomnia that I developed after starting acid reducing drugs. I have had severe heartburn for about 12 years after having my gall bladder removed. I was recently diagnosed with Gastritis and Barrett's Esophagus. I was also prescribed Prevacid, Famotidine, and Welchol which only covers up my symptoms and doesn't get to the root cause of the problem.
Hello, in my early 20s I developed gastro-intestinal issues. I was prescribed Tagamet initially, but it never seemed to adequately manage the condition and I eventually developed a secondary condition called gynecomastia so I was taken off the Tagamet. Over the next 10 years I tried a myriad of other drugs. Pepcid, zantac, stelabid #2, prepulcid, pariat, pantloc and 1 or 2 that I may have forgotten. The majority of these drugs did little or virtually nothing to control the hyper- acidic conditition. In the early 90s I had finally found something that worked exceptionally well, Omeprazole (Losec). I had been taking 20mg daily right up until early 2016. Losec had become relatively ineffective at this time and I was briefly put on Pantoloc. Pantoloc like many previous drugs, was ineffective. In March of 2016, I began taking Dexilant and it has controlled my condition relatively well up until recently, when I was diagnosed with elevated liver enzymes (somewhere in the 300s, when it should be in the 30s.). While I enjoy the odd drink, I am not someone who consumes "alcoholic" proportions. I have had a few "stomache aches" over the past few months that tend to come and go and the doctor suspects it could be gallbladder related. I am due to have an abdominal assesment on Sept. 19. I will post a follow up then. I hope the information that I've provided will benefit the group.

Hello, I have been in pain management for a year. Normally I take anywhere from 1 to 2 percocet at night in order to get pain relief from a spinal cord tumor. Sometimes I won't take any, other times I only take one or a half. There were days that I took 3 in a day due to severe pain. I have ...

Hi, My name is Marie. I have just had a blood test that came out with slightly elevated liver enzymes. My doctor is taking me off my Simvastatin and checking me in 3 months. She has also suggested that I lose some weight so that I might not need the cholesterol lowering drug. Wish me luck!
