I had GERD 20 years ago and was prescribed Zantac pills for 6 months and had to loss weight, i was cured and everything was fine.

Now 20 years later i have my GERD come back as i am overweight, i am losing weight fast now but i have tried both Losec and Omeprazole and i can't tolerate any of these.

I get strange side effects right after one pill, i get itching rash on my chest and legs and my eyes gets watery....

How can i solve this? is there anything else i can use? i tried Zantac but i got the same rash, not nice at all...

Can i let it be without medications and lose weight fast so i go back to normal again so it will heal?

I had terrible trouble tolerating Omeprazole and tried Pantoprazole and Lansoprazole. All gave me very itchy sore skin, non stop itching. By a quirk of fate, I tried olive oil, taken orally, as I read it can help gastritis. It did nothing for my gastritis, but it totally stopped the skin problem!! So I am now able to tolerate 30 mg of Lansoprazole. Sadly that's not keeping me GERD free, but at least my skin is quiet. If I miss a couple of days of olive oil, I start itching again.

New stuff: GERD. Interstitial Cystitis
Lifelong stuff: Food allergies, eczema, asthma

This is killing me as i can't seem to take any medication for this, i had terrible gastritis yesterday as well, ate a banana and i got some releif for some time.

I tried milk 2 days ago and it was the worst thing i could have taken, next morning i had to cough because of all acid in my throat, today i was fine, nothing to cough which must be a good sign for improvement.

The gastritis is worse than the soar throat to be honest, what i don't understand why you get gastritis as well.

I think it's the different natrium ingredients in the tabletts i don't tolerate, so i looked up and Zantac pills doesn't have any natrium, maybe i shall try that but i hate these medications as they all give me constipation.

If i tolerated Losec i would have taken them as i did take one 20mg a couple of days and it did miracle to my gastritis and soar throat in about 3 hours time but i got constipated(again) and itchy red skin rash on my breast and my legs itched and problems with my eyes, dizzy focus.
