ACID REFLEX

Posted , 3 users are following.

OMEPRAZOLE HELPS A LITTLE 40MG 2X PER DAY.  HELPS A LITTLE BUT NOT A WHOLE LOT.  NOT REALLY SURE IF THIS IS REALLY ACID REFLEX.  CLEARING OF THE THROAT A LOT.  VOCAL CORDS NOT HARMED AND I CAN SLEEP.  THIS IS TRULY A PAIN.

    80mg omeprazole a day is a very high dose. Is this prescribed and monitored by a doctor? These drugs are too powerful to be played around with.

    Presumably if you need that much you'll have had an endoscp[ic examination? What did it reveal?

    Clearing throat etc sounds more like reflux than acid. You'll need to work on that.

    See the section on Reflux in the www DownWithAcid org uk book.
