Hello everyone this is my first time on here and I'm hoping you can advise me.
I'm a 50 year old female in good health but recently have been suffering with acid reflux. I was going through a stressful time at work and I'm convinced this brought on the symptoms.
I already had a Consultant I was seeing because I had my gallbladder out last September so I returned to him for advice. He initially prescribed omeprazole and gaviscon but I found the omeorazole gave me a dry mouth so he switched it to lansoprazole. I haven't taken it yet because I don't want to become reliant on it and the list of side effects is long!
I find the symptoms worse at night sometimes I wake up with a burning pain but if I take some gaviscon I can normally get back to sleep.
Does anyone have any experience of lansoprazole? Is this a short term thing I don't want to take keep taking medication.
