Breakout GERD
Hi Folks,

I have GERD and have been on Omeprazole (40mg) for about two years now.  The burning sensation in the back of my throat has returned so I decided to try an H2 Blocker, specifically Zantac (150) I must say, this drug seems to work well but there is one HUGE problem I am experiencing.  Wicked anxiety / panic / brain fog.  Is this something I just need to put up with until my body adapts to this drug?  Any other suggestions if the Zantac needs to be tossed?

Regards,

In addition to what LivinginHope said first and then I wanted to add I was on Zantac 150 for about 4 months and I had no side effects at all. I have a benign arrhythmia (PACS) and so it depends on the person and if you take it long term. I have to go back on it again. But my doctor said not to stay on it all the time. Rather, to stay on it for a while then go off and on. But, I would definitely report this to your doc.

If you can get away with not taking it all the time, that's the best thing.  However, when I was looking to see about cutting back/cutting it out some years back, an ear, nose and throat specialist took a look at my throat and said definitely to continue taking it twice a day.
