This may be a daft question but I'll ask anyway!
I have been suffering with mucous, throat clearing, cough and a burning/bitter taste for the past few months. Diet changes have helped an awful lot but not eliminated all my symptons. Before I changed my diet, the bitter acid evil taste was unbearable......
I finally made some headway today with my GP who suggested LPR (before I mentioned it) and I have been prescribed a months course of rinitidine to take alongside Gaviscon. Now the question I have is in what order to take the Gaviscon and Rinitidine. I understand that the Gavison acts as a raft on top of the stomach contents to prevent them leaking back up into the throat/mouth so if I take the Rinitidine first, will the 'raft' prevent the rinitidine from getting into my system? On the other hand, if I take the Rinitidine AFTER the Gaviscon, I believe I will break the raft?!?!
I'm also on thyroid medication which I have to take in the morning and am not allowed to take other medications within 4 hours due to absorption issues!
Thanks all xx
