Ever since I started taking Amitriptyline I have been getting a burning sensation in my throat at times. It is often the morning after a night when I drank alcohol.
Should I take over the counter medication for acid reflux? Or is the problem likely to be chronic? If it is chronic is there regular use acid reflux medication that you recommend?
I would really rather not stop taking Amitriptyline and I would really rather not stop drinking moderate amounts of alcohol a couple of times a week too. I would rather not visit a doctor, hence me asking here.
I guess my main hope is that there is some kind of medicine for the acid reflux (assuming my guess is correct), which is healthy to use maybe 4 or 5 times a week? I have never had it before so I have no idea what the options are, but a quick search on here made it sounds like some people become dependent on medication for acid reflux.
edit: after more research it looks like Tums antacid is probably worth a try first. Will give them a try later.
