A question about Zantac
How many here take it on a daily basis and have you stopped? I have a prescription for it, take it twice a day, for my acid reflux. I used to take Omeprozole for years until my doctor suggested I switch to Zantac. I have had only a couple episodes of reflux since I've been on it. Really works for me.
I talked to my doctor about it at my last appt. and he said he believed it be a lot of hype and not to worry. But then I heard the warnings on TV last night and had read some articles before that. So I didn't take my dose last night or this morning. I called my doc. office and the nurse talked to my doc. who said if I was really worried about the Zantac I can take Pepcid OTC instead. She also said they had one other patient call them about it. By 4pm. this afternoon I was feeling like I really needed a med. Didn't get the Pepcid so took a Zantac. Felt much better.
Does Pepcid really compare to Zantac? Anyone take it?
