GERD, high BP, palpitations, discomfort. Taking sodium raberprazole, hormonal pills. Help?

i am taking medications for my gerd, and i think maybe one of them is causing my blood pressure rise. i am taking sodium raberprazole before breakfast, ganaton every meal, ranitidine at bedtime,fluimucil twice a day, and a hormonal pill, diane 35. which of these meds cause my high blood pressure? i am 32 years old female. moreso, if my bp is 130/90, can i take hydroxyzine iterax for my palpitations and gaviscon to relieve my discomfort? how about ganaton? or is it safe to take these 3 at this bp? thank you. hope to hear from you...

Gastroenterologist 's  Response
Hello! Thanks for putting your query in HCM. I am a Gastroenterologist.

Among all these medicine diane-35 can lead to increase in BP.

No you should not take hydroxyzine for same as it is antihistaminic and rather will lead to increase in BP.

Instead you take some betablockers which take care of both hypertension and palipitations.

Dont take gaviscon for discomfort, rather I will advise to continue with bath rabeprazole and ganaton

Few more tips:
1.Avoid fatty meals
2. Dont lie down soon after meals for at least half hour
3.Take small and frequent meals, instead of full meals at a time
4. wear loose clothes
5. If you are overweight or obese do weight reduction with dieting and exercise.

I hope I have answered your query and this will help you. Remain in touch and get-well soon
