That is awesome!!! Are you still taking Zantac? If so, have you had any adverse reactions to it's prolonged use? So far, I've had no adverse reactions, just positive good response to it.

No I quit taking it after about 2.5 months and didn't seem to have any adverse effects. My GI wasn't happy since he wanted me on it for 6 months. I take zyrtec as needed now, but I think I've built up a tolerence to it.

Trish Trish,

I took Zantac 150 for a year and a half without any issues. The one thing to watch out for when taking it for a prolonged period of time is that it can decrease calcium absorbtion. I don't have a site to link to for that information though because it is from my Diet and Nutrition textbook, but perhaps you could find that info if you googled it.

I am very happy that you found something that works for you though, it is wonderful news :)

I would love to find the article in thyroid.com that irishHeart quoted. My husband is hypothyroid, I would love to read it to see if anything pertains to him. I've been searching for it and cannot find it.



Here you are, kiddo. It's actually thyroid-info.com:

Thank you! Your explanation sounds much like the doctors. I swear I need a doctorates degree to understand this stuff!! :P

Whoops, sorry. That's as simple as I could make it. :unsure: I was hoping having it written down so you could read it a couple times might help.

That is good to know. I knew there was a warning for osteoporosis for PPI's (proton pump inhibitors), but I didn't know that Zantac has the same issue. It makes sense though. I'll need to up my calcium. My labs are good right now though. I had tests done is November....I'll be watching my calcium labs.

You hit the nail on the head. "simple solution" I would have never guessed that it could be so easy to fix. Yet, here I am, able to breath wheat without a violent histamine reaction.... :blink:

Wonder why the allergist did not know this?

My reactions are all allergic in nature, however, I see from reading that I do share some celiac reactions, which are also listed for allergic reactions. Also, my best friend who is a Natureopathic doctor, initially thought I had Celiac, but now says "no celiac" She has seen my reactions and actually did a barley/rye challenge with me. I had a delayed allergic reaction, not a celiac reaction.

Again, thanks for the info!!!!


um, what is a celiac reaction? Not sure what you mean by this.

What happened when you ate barley and rye?

This doesn't surprise me at all-- I had an severe allergic reaction to a bee sting some years ago-- after the ambulance got me into the ER the first thing they did was shot me up with Benedryl and put a drip bag of Zantac into my IV, along with a steroid. They said that the combo works really well for bee stings. I also took the zantac for 2 weeks after the reaction to keep a rebound reaction from happening... I am really glad it worked for you.

Gosh, I hope I didn't insult you :unsure: I just meant I have more of a histamine reaction versus the big D and DH mostly. here are the notes from my Barley challenge, I never made it to the rye challenge, I just couldn't get myself to go there. However, the doc who prescribed the Zantac last week thought that my barley reaction/challenge was probably CC from wheat. She said that the grains are usually contaminated with each other. We all know that this is true. That is why we buy gluten-free oats. She herself think it's a straight wheat allergy, but that I will have to be gluten-free because of CC in grains. Who knows? All I know is that gluten-free is what I'll be doing for life, regardles of the exact diagnoses.


Barley challenge:

June 7, 2011
1900 hrs
1/2 cup barley soup, no reaction except for an ant bite became more itchy.

2100 hrs
½ cup barley soup

1000 hrs
½ cup barley soup

1800 hrs
Rumbling guts. Dry mouth. Stiff ankles



2000 hrs,
All flu symptoms have resolved, fever gone. Doc friend thinks it was a delayed allergic reaction (the fever, and histamine reaction. She no longer believes I am a Celiac.

Jun 10th
0700 hrs
Headache from hell. Stuffy sinuses, I feel like I did a year ago when I was still eating wheat.

1400 hrs- second dose of maxalt taken.

1900 hrs-still feeling horrible

June 11th-
