I'm 25 and was diagnosed with grade a oesophagitis about a month ago. Dr gave me Rabeprazole and within 3 days I developed what appeared to be some sort of allergic reaction to it - I had a severe swollen an inflamed throat. Severe dry mouth and nasal passage. I ended up in the ER as I became dehydrated from being unable to drink or eat properly. I didn't think it was the medication I thought maybe I had a viral infection. I came off the Rabeprazole and literally within 2 days throat was starting to feel better. Meds were replaced with 40mg Nexium. It's been 5 or 6 days and again my throat is beginning to swell and become very sore. I'm afraid I have some sort of allergy to ppi.
I would appreciate any advice. What should I do? Lower my dose? I think I need to go back to my specialist asap.
