Brief Answer:
Gastritis

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

The nausea, breathlessness and feeling of heaviness in the chest are the symptoms seen in gastritis. Aspirin being an NSAID is known to cause gastritis by breaking the protective mucus layer lining the stomach.

Need not worry, taking an antacid like Gelusil or Tums would reduce your symptoms.
The other medications have no role in your symptoms other than Metoprolol which can cause decreased heart rate.

Do get your medications revised regularly to avoid long term side effects.

Hope, I answered your query.

Please let me know if there are any other concerns.

Brief Answer:
Yes, the side effects

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for writing back.

It takes time for the Dexilant to show some response. Do continue for some more time. The effect of this drug on gastritis is slow but potent.

Do avoid carbonated drinks they tend to increase the gastritis.

Xanax dosage is fine, reduce further more to avoid dependence.

Lipitor (atorvastatin) could cause nausea added to this Aspirin making it worse.

Blood pressure and pulse variation is normal. Metoprolol could affect it keep a watch.

The side effect profile of the medication you are on is wide. You may be getting more sick due to the medications itself if you are on them for a long time. Do get the medications revised regularly.

Hope, I answered your query.

Empty stomach is mandatory

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for writing back.

Its is very important that you take Dexilant empty stomach only.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Metoprolol is a potent drug it does help to get you rid of Palpitation.

Do not change or miss a medication on your own. wrong dosing not only reduces the efficacy of the drug but it also causes health complications.

Pulse is good

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Pulse rate and Blood pressure are good.

Lisinopril has no role in altering getting the flutters down. It brings down the blood pressure.

Metoprolol only would suffice, it does take time to show response. be patient and do not take any new drug.

Brief Answer:
Metoprolol alone is enough

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I would consider Metoprolol alone would suffice to control palpitation, but it may take sometime. There are no other supplements but drugs, taking two or more drugs can reduce the efficacy of each other or present side effects.

Brief Answer:
To prevent formation of clots

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Aspirin in post heart attack persons is given to prevent blood clot formation. Blood clots can led to heart attacks.

Do not stop medication on your own. Specially Lipitor is essential to bring down your cholesterol which can trigger a heart attack if more.

Hope, I answered your query.

Kindly close the query if your doubts are answered.
