Welcome to XXXXXXX

Acidity might be responsible for nausea. I advice you to avoid spicy food and alcohol and smoking for few days.
It will be better if you take proton pump inhibitor, these are acid reducing drugs, should be taken empty stomach half an hour breakfast. It will address your acidity and nausea. I advice you to take the drug for 3 to 4 days.

Hope I have provided the information you needed.
Wish you good health. Take care.

Zantac contains Ranitidine, it is acid reducing drug, it will be helpful. It should be taken empty stomach half an before food.

Apart from drug, you should avoid spicy foods for few days.

Gallbladder out in june of 2010 but before had been on 80 mg of simvistatin and everything was hurting when I stopped the med everything went back to normal, except my upper right pain under my ribs. have been on ranitidine for couple of years, could it be that. but also after stopping the simvistatin my pain in URQ radiates to by back bone, now have pvcs that I never had and just feel horrible most of the time. Have I been poisoned or should I try stopping the ranitidine ?

Hi I came back from India 10 days ago with a diarrhea... it subsided but I have been experiencing discomfort in my stomach ever since.... my doctor gave me Ranitidine 150 mg (twice daily) to make the acidity go away... but I'm still alternately constipated or have an urge to go. Also I noticed my stools are olive greenish in color... it is really bothering me... any help or good advice appreciated. Should I be tested for H.Pylori or something more serious? It has been ten days already.

Every 3-4 days, a raised, itchy rash will appear somewhere on my 12 year-old s body. Never in the same place. First it was on buttocks, then hands, forearms another day, shins a few days later. Yesterday it appeared on his wrists, knees and cheeks. It is alleviated in a matter of minutes after administering separate dosages of prednisolone, Zyrtec and Zantac. The hives first appeared May 10 after a day spent in the woods with friends. He may have rubbed a Bounce dryer sheet on his body to deter insects. But the rash will not completely go away and we are almost out of the prescription. Any thoughts?
