Hi,
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.

Hello
Good to hear from you.

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.

Hope i have cleared your queries. If you do not have any clarifications, you can close the discussion.
Wish you good health.

Hi, I've been suffering with extreme stomach and abdominal pain for over a year now, I had a camera down my throat and was told I had gastritis which I started pantoprezole 40mg twice daily and ranitidine 300mg before bed. Over a year later I'm still getting these pains from my my stomach and all down my abdomen (upon waking my whole abdomen feels bruised like pain similar to being winded) along with constipation, nausea and general feeling of being unwell. Any help appreciated as this has lead to me now having anxiety :/ I've also had a ultrasound to rule out gallstones

I traveled internationally two days back and the same night had a bout of vomiting (with lot of nausea and sweating) and loose motions. It was a one off event and no temperature. The nausea persisted in the morning. Doctor prescribed Ciprolaxacin (500 mg OD) plus dompeirdon and Zantac. This seems to give me palpitations (tachycardia). The doctor has now stopped Cipro and Zantac and gone for Cefixime. I looked up the net for adverse reactions of Cefixime and do not like them. I still have some nausea and dizziness. Also I have a history of very sensitive stomach (IBS). What to do?

My wife is diabetic and has chronic gastritis. She has this acute pain on the upper abdomen and the pain can only be relieved by pathidine. The doctors have prescribed Hyoscine,omeprazole,amoxycilline,ranitidine and promethazine but nothing seems to help as the pain keeps on coming back. Endoscopy was done and it came out negative, no inflammation of the stomach lining, no ulcer. Please help as we have spent a lot of money on medical bills and nothing seems to improve.
