 1  Acid reflux Horrific bloating, next day none of my rings would fit, whole system became totally stuck (constipation), incredible sleepiness as if I'd taken a sleeping pill, stomach ache, weight gain, flu like feeling, instant depression... This was the worst experience ever! Adverse effects were so severe I had to quit taking this. Effects only wore off 5 days after taking it. I also have Sjogren's syndrome, I wonder if this has any bearing on the side effects.... Irony is that clinical studies claim nizatidine might acutally be beneficial for Sjogren's as it could increase saliva production. Unfortunately, I did not notice this effect either, but maybe I gave up too soon.... F 47 2 days

 4  heartburn None This works very well. I take 150mg/day. I used to have heartburn before and after each meal & I rarely have flareups now. It's made a big difference. F 51 5 years
 5  Acid Reflux None My son, 8 months old, has been on Axid since he was two months old as well. It does not stop his spitting up but it does seem to make him less uncomfortable. M 0.8 6 months
 5  Acid reflux symtoms I experienced no side effects from using this drug. My doc initially prescribed Prilosec and Prevacid, each of which caused me stomach pain, diarrhea and other side effects. Axid gave me relief with absolutely no side effects. I was curious why AXID which has no known side effects is prescribed after first trying others which each have several KNOWN side effects. I suspect that it's because AXID doesn't have a a billion dollar ad campaign and an army of drug reps hyping it to the nation's doctors everyday. If you've experienced side effects with Prilosec, Nexium or Prevacid which are equal to or worse than the symptom for which they are prescribed, ask your doc to try AXID for you. M 55 3 months
 4  Reflux None My son has been taking Axid for about 5 months (since he was 2 months old). He has Reflux and while the Axid doesn't do much to eliminate the Reflux, it has made his discomfort much better. M 0.5 5 months

AXID  (NIZATIDINE):  Nizatidine is used to treat ulcers of the stomach and intestines and prevent them from coming back after they have healed. This medication is also used to treat certain stomach and throat (esophagus) problems (such as erosive esophagitis, gastroesophageal reflux disease-GERD). It works by decreasing the amount of acid your stomach makes. It relieves symptoms such as cough that doesn't go away, stomach pain, heartburn, and difficulty swallowing. Nizatidine belongs to a class of drugs known as H2 blockers.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
