Reviews for Zantac to treat GERD

I was on Zantac for 6-8 months to treat my Acid Reflux. I was on it to train my stomach to produce less acid. It was great. No heartburn or flare ups of the Acid Reflux. However, I did have reduced sex drive from it. When I was waiting for the prescription to be refilled all the suppressed sex drive from months of medication would hit me all at one time. I also had horrendous withdrawal form it. That is until I got the prescription refilled. Now I have very few flare ups. They went from making me vomit and lasting 3-5 days to maybe 1 day and making me a tad queasy. All in all good medication if you can get past the side effects.

Zantac worked wonders on me. I have taken this medicine for 3 almost 4 years now I used to not be able to eat. After I started this medicine I was able to eat a lot more. This worked wonders on me. The other day I took a Prevacid and it didn't help at all. Also this didn't work on me at first until my doctor put me on this 2X daily.

I swapped to Zantac after Nexium, which did not work well for me. Zantac has been great; not having any trouble sleeping, symptoms of reflux have gone, have my energy and concentration back. So much better than Nexium, one third of the cost, and available without prescription.

This medicine really didn't work for me. The moment I took it for my acid reflux it gave me a headache.It worked with getting my acid down in my stomach for a couple of days.

Zantac has been very good at keeping my heartburn/reflux under control.

Zantac 150 works very well for my GERD. I take one pill at bedtime with water. What I didn't realize was that my constant throat clearing was also related to GERD and not some pulmonary problem. Zantac cleared up my constant throat clearing which was even more of an advantage than clearing up my GERD.

This is just an amazing medicine. I started on this many years ago in the UK and the relief it brought was just plain wonderful. After losing 120lbs in weight, I found the medical condition pretty much went away, but with a lot of stress recently and putting 30lbs back on the reflux is back. So is the Zantac, thank goodness. Highly recommended medication which I have always kept handy (just in case).

Zantac really helped my 7 year old out with his acid reflux. He has been vomiting for nearly 2 years. More at night than during the day. He now has been on Zantac for 2 months now and he has no problem with acid reflux.
