Gastritis ppis

Posted by daphne52 @daphne52, May 21 8:28am

I'm have gastritis and prescribed 40mg pantoprazole for 3 months by gastro doc and now my URO doc started me on Keflex antibiotic for 6 months for chronic utis. Been on both meds for 1 month now, After a month on the pantoprazole I still have the upper stomach pain. I ask the gastro doc if the antibiotic could be keeping the stomach from healing, he said yes. He wants me to now take 40mg pantoprazole Twice a day (80mg). I have osteoporosis and terrified the 80mg will break my bones, also, I read 80mg is way too much. Been miserable too long. Any advice please?

I was on 40mg Pantaprazole 2x a day. I'm now on 40mg 1x a day 30 min. before supper. I have chronic gastritis and doubt it will ever go away. Did you get checked for H Pylori?

I had a test done for CYP2C19 enzyme before taking a cardiac medication. It showed I was an ultra-fast metabolizer. If you're in that category, or the rapid category ,you have an insufficient response to PPI's like Omeprazole. Other medications are effected too.

I'd been taking Omeprazole for gastritis, and GERD for years, and it didn't work. Then I was switched to Pantaprazole, which works a little better. Silly to take medications that are not the correct dosage.
