Zantac during pregnancy? K8Hanna Due May 14; 2 kids; 7 angel babies; Salem, NJ, United States 1182 posts

I've had extremely bad acid reflux for the past couple of weeks. So bad that I can't even sleep unless I sleep sitting up. I called my midwife and she said I could try Zantac. Has anyone else been told that Zantac is safe during pregnancy?
I wouldn't even be taking it if it wasn't so bad. My throat hurts all the time because of the acid. It feel like I can't even swallow, like the food just sits in my throat! It's unbearable! I've had 3 ulcers, so I'm a little worried about the damage the acid could do to my asophagus.

I take it.



Most heartburn/GERD medications are safe during pregnancy.

It works really good, I love it.

Oh good! It's just been aweful! I took it once and then I had a friend who said she never heard about it being safe during pregnancy, and I got a little worried! Whew! That's a relief! I don't know what I'd do if I couldn't take it, it worked so well! Thanks ladies!

I took Nexium during pregnancy because zantac didn't work for me. Now I'm breast feeding I take zantac because nexium isn't safe to take. The zantac works now I'm not pregnant. Just something to keep in mind
