Sometimes after I take it I get heartburn so bad and it just burns all the way up my throat I feel like I'm going to die from it. Sometimes I throw up and it really hurts. Has this happened to anyone else? How do you prevent it? Or deal with it?
lennon; As side effects listed with prozac that you might want to talk with the doctor about is. BLOATING, CONTINUE VOMITING, Abdominal or stomach pain AND Diarrhea which that last one is not helping with your problem with the Metformin I would check with the doctor about these you might have to try something else you could try Ginger ale drink and soda crackers and see if that helps but all of this should be brough to the doctors attention.
lennonnn; What I am thinking it could be the prozac causing the diarrhea and not the Metformin. But I don't want you to continue with vomiting and diarrhea ect every day this could lead to more problems like dehydration etc. and keep an eye on your blood sugar again. your friend Chuck.1957 Maybe go to the pharmacy and talk with the pharmacist and get some loperamide see if that well help try it prior to your trip. Also if the crackers and ginger does not help get an Antacid like tums but don't take them for at least an hour after your medication. Best of luck. See what your Pharmacist says and when you get back see your doctor. Chuck.
Lennon' The Prozac is still worth checking out, Your system changes to ask what your doctor thinks it could even be the comb. of both drugs between the two it could be causing more side effects. Worth checking into no reason to suffer with side effects that could be controlled. But your body and system does change as we get older too. Just something to think about.
I know this is an old post, hopefully it will help others. Yes I get horrible heartburn from this medication to the point it feels like an alien is trying to burst out of my chest. The thing that helps me is definitely eating something before taking it. I would suggest eating something twenty minutes before taking it, if I do get heart burn it is something I can take an antacid for after eating something.
Certain kinds of generic Prozac give me SUCH bad heartburn. It feels like it’s doing damage to my esophagus. I know it’s the Prozac because it is right after I take it. My pharmacy just switched to that generic again. (I switched from Walmart Rx to Walgreens. That helped until Walgreens switched... )
Yes, very recently I switched pharmacies and the genetic they filled for me is a different generic than what I had been receiving. When I take this new generic 40mg fluxitine Blue oblong capsule A107. I have what feels like very intense acid reflux, burning in throat and stomach. I took 4 tums and drank a full glass of milk and had 0% relief. It does go away after a few hours. I’m gonna switch back to the brand Prozac or request a different generic and see if that helps. Good luck
