I have been taking Zantac 150 for a couple of weeks, and it is very effective. I had been taking prescription medication for acid reflux, but was concerned about recent FDA annoucements that those are bad for your bones if taken too long.

I was diagnosed with GERD a year ago. Nexium 40mg worked fine for me but I chose to stop taking it when news came out about that class of drugs affecting the bones * I have borderline osteoporosis. Zantac 150 works ok for awhile, then one day I get a severe headache, stomach ache, nausea that last for entire day SO I skip taking Zantac the next 2 days but start again the day after. I also still ...

2nd stage of treatment for H. Pylori as I could not tolerate the prescription medication. I take 150 mg every 12 hours.

I had espohagus erosion and was on Nexium. Once that was healed I could not go without antiacids. I took Prilosec and it also worked well. Concern over the bone problems and immune system interactions made me go off that and try Zantac as a step down. It worked well, is constipating but less than the other 2 were. I am now in process of discontinuning its use. Drinking lots of water and think I will be able to stop taking any antiacids.

I was diagnosed with GERD a year ago. Nexium 40mg worked fine for me but I chose to stop taking it when news came out about that class of drugs affecting the bones * I have borderline osteoporosis. Zantac 150 works ok for awhile, then one day I get a severe headache, stomach ache, nausea that last for entire day SO I skip taking Zantac the next 2 days but start again the day after. I also still lose my voice by the end of the day. I HAVE NO CHOICE. THERE IS NOTHING ELSE I CAN TAKE OTHER THEN TUMS. All meds have side effects. When I take nothing I get a painful sore throat that also affects my eustachian tubes and lose my voice. I don't get heartburn. I'm not happy having GERD.
