Zantac 75
Does anyone know if you can take Zantac 75 during your first trimester for heartburn?  I took it with my first pregnancy, but it was a lot later in the pregnancy.  I am dying here, and need a fix.  Thanks

i "believe" you can take it....the only i could find online, says to let your dr know you have/are taking it....the key ingredient, ranitidine, can be passed through breastmilk.....

most dr's give you a list of "approved OTC meds", and most of them show what can be taken at different stages of pregnancy.....idk if prilosec has been "ok'd", HOWEVER i do know that for normal people, it can cause huge stomach issues, so def stay away from that!!!!!

My RE and my OB both said I could take Zantac 150 - - didn't want me to take Pepto Bismol (b/c it has aspirin in it) or Prilosec OTC (it's a category C).

Thanks so much!  I had some from my last pregnancy, and went to take it last night.  It was expired!  What a bummer.  I just went to bed instead!  Thanks for the info!
