 1  gerd After taking zantac 300mg for four days I experienced numbness in my legs and pain down both arms. The gastro doc took me off of it, but my liver enzymes are very high and I have to go for many procedures to see if I have liver damage. In addition, I also need cardiac exams to rule out a heart attack. This drug should be taken off the market it is very dangerous. F 49 4 days

 3  GERD Sore throat, constricted throat, constipation, nervousness, anxiety, insomnia, interesting dreams, stomach pain. I have used this drug on and off for years. When I was in my 20's I took 300 mg. a day for about 3 months without experiencing any side effects. I have been taking 150 mg every day for about a year, with minimal side effects only a little insomnia here and there. I started experiencing stomach pain and did not think at all that the Zantac could be causing it, so I upped the dosage to 300 mg. After 4 day's at this dose I experienced a tightness in my throat, sore throat, agitation, insomnia and anxiety. I missed a day of work I could not function. I have had issues with taking medications in this class of drugs, I usually experience headaches, this is the one drug that does not do that. I have now stopped taking Zantac and have made an appt. with my Doctor. F 52 365 days

 4  H.Hernia/Acid reflux/Pain swollowin GP prescribed this as Rabaprazole caused heart arrythmia and Omaprazole caused itchy skin. First 7 days fine but little acid relief then OMG nausea in mornings constipation all day and persistant stomach pain and horrendous belching.Some alteration to diet assisted this and I persevered with it. Now much better less symptoms and much less acid. Heard it can take a month to improve.I'm gonna stick with GP's advise and use it if all else fails but try natural remedies otherwise as it can stop absorbtion of vits and minerals so I'm taking a multivit at same time as don't want lose of magnesium causing ectopic heart rhythmn F 46 10 days

 1  acid reflux cramping, fatigue, insomnia, bloating, gas, and not sure about it but convinced I have some kind of damage to my leg, general body ache I started acid reflux treatment with Ranitidine but started getting brain pains... not unlike an ice cream headache... my doctor put me on nexium for my acid reflux and after a year or so I started to have issues with that too.... I was having difficulty with my lower leg/calf and foot (among other standard issues gas bloating etc)- my leg from knee to ankle lost partial feeling and then I started having cramps. Needless to say I stopped taking it. The cramps went away but I have permanent damage to my leg below the knee and to my toes... less sensation... just feels different from my other leg and has never improved. also have plantar faciitus. I started using over the counter zantac in low dosages... seemed to help the reflux and no brain pain... since it has ranitidine in it I figured maybe it is a dosage thing and long term reaction so I limited when I took the medication to when I was desperate and that helped... but... recently started getting the cramps in my leg again. I also have a general body ache... feels like I am aging (I am 44 but feel like I am a lot older) - my joints seem affected - I think I have always had issues with my joints but I think taking the proton pump inhibitors somehow causes acceleration of body aging... makes worse any bone issues like arthritis etc... cant prove it but I suspect it. the drug works but I am concerned about long term use M 44 3 years

 1  acid reflux Constricting of esophagus and throat. Great pains in chest , jaw and heart area. Had to take an epipen to get relief. Really major stuff. When I began taking it, it made me sick all over. Just ill like I had the flu, then as I kept taking it , the pains came and are almost like a heart attack. Take it off the market and replace it with something else. F 53 5 months

 1  Acid reflux I didn't realize this was causing my affects until I quit taking the Zantac. I've been extremely Nervous, heart palpitations, shortness or breath to the point that I felt extremely lightheaded and even more nervous. I thought I was coming down with something. The bad part about all of this is I felt like I was slipping into a depression, I'm 33 years old and I was getting winded doing my regular workouts. Maybe Maybe a life saver for some but not for me. M 33 2 weeks
