The drug was effective than what I had imagined. I started taking it because I had depression from my adolescence and hence I was much of a loner. Then when I found that I could not continue like this for the rest of my life I decided to go to a psychologist. She was the one who advised me to use this drug and I am thankful to her for that. I started off on 100mg tables but now it is about 300mg after five months. Well, I have some slight side effects like headache and nausea, except which the drug is totally good.

I had the problem of diarrhea so I have to take this pill. It was quite useful for me. The dose was to have 6mg twice a day. It made belly from further hurting. So it is pretty well.
It has been nine months since I started using the medicine. There is a notable decrease in my pain. The milk production stopped within a very short time after I started the drug. My periods are also back to normal. Headaches, nausea, blurred vision, tingling of fingers, lack of concentration, feeling of dumbness any many other peculiar problems came up after I started on the pill. Sometimes I have very high sex drive. I feel my breasts are large and tender. My dosage is 0.5mg two times a week. I take in large amount of water daily.

Due to the side effects of proton pump ranitidine h2 blocker. Due to acid reflux I have got barretts esophagus. For this problem I ha taken proton drive inhibitors it will not cause any side effects as told before, but they usually cause dry eyes, erectile dysfunction And some times flare ups of colitis .My wife also takes this and suffered from the same problem that I hah been going through. Then I changed to zantac, with a dose of 150mg twice daily some times. It was found to stop the production of acid for 8 to 10 hour gaps but due to this heart burn became a trouble. I converted my medical doctor to try to give me 85 mg two times daily, and found it to be adjustable with my body. After this I had try cider apple vinegar treatment to decrease acid creation. It was a great surprise for me because it had worked and now I am back down to 85 mg zantac twice per day. Even though red grapefruit juice and apple vinegar can heal the acid problem but it can cause ulcers plus damage causing acid burn.

I came to know about zantac on the web page which was about interstitial cystitis. It worked well for me for the problem bladder pain. The colic pain which is caused due to the bladder problem is very heavy. I was unable to due to my regular chores. so I had to take this medicine, it was quite useful to my problem. But it had two main disadvantages: it can cause the person to go to state of drowsiness and it can be got only by prescription. For the first time taking the pills it was done according to the instruction and to the end due to this drowsiness I took them before the bed at night. They had given a sound sleep and it was enjoyable to me. It said that the side effect is very low; I had minor problems with this. I wake up in the morning with the feeling of tiredness and depression. (I had taken only 5mg). So from my own experiences I conclude give more importance to side effects even though how there are benefits of pain relief it is better to start the pills with minimum dosages.

The reason for the usage of zantac was due to the pain in gall bladder which was developed into full reflux. I had this problem right from the age of 25. First I use to ignore the pain since it was mild but week after week it increased. And due to this I had taken the tablet zantac. This pill made me to keep the pain under control. The very important thing is that it keeps only the pain under control and not the disease. Then for the cure I have shifted to prilosec. Zantac is not the cur but manage the pain.
I have recently developed spasms which come more often at night. Due to this reason I am tossed off my bed almost every time as hence I have not slept properly for days now. Now, my doctor gave me Tizanidine which helps me control these spasms and gives me proper sleep at night. I had tried using Baclofen instead of Tizanidine just out of curiosity but it did not give any results hence now I have switched back to Tizanidine.  I had been having three tables four times in a day, but now after my radiofrequency oblation I have lessened the dose to just two tablets four times.

Zantac the drug was taken by me for the reason of stomach troubles. Since the day I have taken this my hair became thin and it started falling. Mine was a natural curl hair and it became colorless and thin. I used to have this for 2 years since this problem and stopped the taking of the pills. The next thing I started to observe is that my hair condition was returning to normal.
I had taken this for the purpose of controlling of blood pressure, but it caused me side effects in sex. So I drop the pill from further problems.

This MEDICINE has made an important difference. I was taking all kinds of fiber, and still had to use laxatives to go more than once per week. Now I go at least every 2-3 days and have a much softer stool. This was done with help of the wonderful tablet. And I have only had 1 event of IBS pain since initializing this, and it was not as strict. I still have a little mess detection to take the pill before I start eating specially at the sunset meal. The other thing that has to be aware of the medicine is its cost. I have good insurance, costs me $30, so I can manage the cost. If there was no insurance, it would cost about $150/month, since my doctor wants me to stay on the drug history the optional duration of 12 weeks. But nothing can be done I have to continue until my doctor asks me to stop.
