Having been on ranitidine and having good results for 2 years I have trouble understanding why doc changed meds. This med makes me dizzy, causes heart flutters and raises my blood pressure. Not good after a heart attack.

Comment:
Just like Nexium and Dexilant, headaches, dizziness, diarrhea, bad on my kidney function and irregular fast/slow heartbeat. The over-the-counter medicines give me pain in the jaw/neck/upper chest. (Prilosec,etc.) I can only take Pepcid AC, any other solutions? The doctors are scatching their heads.
