I've been taking Strattera for a few weeks the nausea was definitely there took Zantac when I take the pill to stop it but lately it hasn't I vomited the last couple times I took it. Also I get tingles (like goose bumps) down the back of my leg and my neck and head. I'm not happy at all with these side effects and I'm scared to keep taking it for fear I will vomit again. ugh.

| Living Again as You Will
No one but YOU will begin your final end of opiate use. Users don't want to quit because its a self-initiated form of torture. I quit, because I missed my life. I had the help of 1 person I really cared about, and that's all you need, even if they don't know their helping you. Stop taking the shit. Suffer for 24-48hrs. Take (30) 2mg Loperamide, and (2) Zantac, wait two hours. Start convincing yourself you feel a little better for other reasons. Take (20) Loperamide and (1) Zantac... Sleep for the first time in a few days. Feel kind of shitty because of the 20% it doesn't help. But do it while realizing you stumbled on a combination of OTC meds that will free you from the shit. And I use that word very carefully. Opiates are shit. They have taken your life, your kids, your friends, your self-esteem and your health. Now GET IT ALL BACK!

I am a woman in my early 40's and I'm physically active working out 5-6 days a week. I was prescribed/taking Nexium 40mg for severe heartburn/acid reflux, gastrointestinal and esophagus issues. idk the technical term but it did relieve the heartburn, however I had a increase in regergitation after exercise and pain and discomfort digesting whole foods. I stopped taking it without doctors permission. After some labs were done it showed some sludge in my gallbladder but no blockage. After some months of natural cleansing and homeopathic remedies I still had the reflux, only not as severe, a lot of bile burps throughout the day and minor gastrointestinal issues. I re visited my doctor for another option and have been on Zantac 150mg a few days and so far stomach stress is decreased, bile burps are down and heartburn is gone and I ate broccoli and chicken without pain after a few bites.

Seizures following Zantac
| Stephanie Cerra
After going several years without a seizure, last night I had two, separated by four hours. This was following a day where I'd taken Zantac twice, after not having used it at all for many years--doesn't seem like a coincidence.

I had gone 4 months, took a generic zantac (ran out of tums) before frito pie. Halfway into making my frito pie, I wake up surrounded by paramedics. That feeling always sucks.

Zantac and irregular heartbeat
| LindaB
30+ years ago I had take Zantac for a duodenal ulcer. Since then I have had an ectopic heartbeat where it seems to stop then beats oddly for about 5 minutes. I've noticed in the studies that long term heart beat problems after taking Zantac is at 0% well I can attest that it does happen.
