- Ranitidine is bad juju
Used 3-5 times per week for about 1 1/2 years. Noticed:
shortness of breath
dryness - more so than usual
I quit taking it and felt much better within 2-3 days.
- 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.
- 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.

From this study (1 month ago):
Taking Ranidine only when having gerd. At the same time, treating melasma by taking supplement and vitamin -- L-Glutathione& Blackmore Buffered C 500 MG. But taking them 4-5 days then stop for a few days and then taking again for about 6 weeks.
Then just found out some white some white spots on skin (arm, leg, neck) but very small, around 2 mm.
From this study (1 month ago):
dexmethylphenidate will be wearing-off [after ten hours]. zantac 75mg [~1/2 of 150mg tab] will be just starting. repeat same dosing beginning ~9 hours... if nothing serious [or not very significant] happens. sidebar: have been described as a "fast metabolizing" person but am not sure if that refers to my liver -or- experience with many drugs/chemicals over last 40 years. thank you for your help [which will be seriously considered]. take good care, tom-tom
From this study (3 months ago):
