Terrible acid reflux 4 weeks in to Sert 50mg

Posted , 5 users are following.


I have had the gambit of side affects so far but the worst has been the pain of acid reflux. My doctor is having me take 2 omeprazole per day. Morning and night. This is day 1 of it. I hope to God it works. The heartburn has sent my anxiety through the roof.

Anyways, has anyone else Had this experience? I feel like anytime things start getting better boom something else come along. I guess it goes with this disease.

God Bless

    Do you drink enough water with your pill? I find that every time I don't drink enough water, it hits me like a heart attack. When I swallow my pill, I swallow really hard as to make sure it goes down.

    I have also been taking Sertraline (50mg) for just over 4 weeks. I have found it causes acid reflux shortly after taking the pill first thing in the morning. I was prone to acid reflux before treatment though and I am supposed to take  Lansoprazole daily. I was taking it every 3 or 4 days before treatment or if I had eaten a rich meal and was suffering. Since taking the Sertraline though, I find I need to take the lansoprazole every day.

    Other side effects have not been too bad. I was nauseous for the first few days but that cleared up.  Night sweats seem to be pretty frequent, but again, not as bad as they were a couple of weeks ago.

      You need to drink 8 ounces of water with the pill and eat a little something...otherwise, it is bombs away!
