I wanted to post my experience in case this helps anyone. I had been treated for acid reflux for almost 3 years by a Gastro doc with prescribed different combinations of meds. pantapazole or omeprazole or pepcid. I never did an endoscope but my doctor did do a barium ultrasound and didnt see any reason for the endoscope. one day I was double over with stomach pains and I went to my regular doctor which order an abdominal ultrasound. results were I had a bowel obstruction. my doctor prescribed over the counter miralax. I took this for 7 days and it helped greatly. after the 7 days I stopped the miralax and noticed my acid reflux symptoms came back as well. i called my doctor and asked her if it was ok for me to continue to take miralax daily and she said it was fine since it worked with the water in the body. since then I have not had acid reflux episode. I am not telling anyone to stop taking their acid reflux meds but just wanted to tell my story. please see your doctor and discuss. this also explains why I could never list my trigger foods. I avioded the typical fried greasy sodas. I kept a list of my trigger foods but they were never consistent. one day a salad would set it off I would say ok maybe the dressing. i go to the gym and healthy so it wasnt an over weight situation. however if I miss one day of miralax I do notice the difference the following day. maybe a combination of me not being open with the doctor and the doctor not asking the right questions.
