When I was in the process of getting diagnosed... my GI gave me Nexium and then we tried Protonix. I was just wondering if anyone else suffered severe abdominal pain when taking those. And, if so, what could that mean? Just curious. I look forward to some input!

Have you checked to make sure they are gluten-free on www.glutenfreedrugs.com

Don't make the mistake I made. I thought anything my GI prescribed for me would be okay since it was coming from him, but my GI prescribed Lomotil for the diarrhea and sure enough, after a major reaction, I checked on the list and it contained gluten!!!

Have a great day!

Karen,
Thank you so much for your suggestions. When you mentioned that Lomotil isn't gluten-free I discontinued it and when you mentioned it here again, I thought I'd better check the Prilosec OTC that I take-OPPS! It's not on the list either! Thanks again, Granny

i used to take nexium before my diagnosis to control reflux, it is gluten free however I experienced severe stomach pain almost as though someone punched me in the stomach and i also felt very full with even the smallest amount of food when I was taking it. However, after about 4-6 months those side effects went away....Good luck hope you feel better!
