    Corsodyl good but it does stain your teeth a bit, dentist told me. In the short term very good. Bleeding gums is a side effect of Lansoprazole, but only a mild one ......

    Why are you blaming the PPI?

    There are many reasons for bleeding gums, just ask your dentist. There is a toothpaste designed for reflux suffers which I regularly use. Its more likely to be due to the acid in your mouth not the PPI causing the problems.

      wasn't blaming the ppi, just was asking if anyone else had this before while taking the meds. It's just starting happening around bout the time i starting taking them....could also be the teeth grinding of course! but thanks for the response.

    Yes this hapened to me as well. When I spit first thing in the morning there's a streak of blood. So it is actually the acid that's causing this? No cough or hoarseness.I would have the classic metallic taste in my mouth. But this only occurs in the morning and not at any time of the day. I would like to suggest ascorbic acid or Vit. C but once again it would only cause acidity. I ate brocolli for other source of Vit. C. Hope you feel well soon.
