I was diagnosed with LPR Reflux a while ago.  I took Nexium for around 6 weeks and got better. Went off the Nexium. Every now and then I would have some reflux but not bad.
Well, I have had a few bouts with the feeling that something was stuck in my throat. I went to my ENT and he told me that the reflux was still an issue. He gave me Prevacid but I didn't take it. The feeling went away and I was okay.
Starting today I have a sore throat and that yucky acid taste. My throat isn't just a normal sore throat. It is an acidy one. Yuck. Anyway, I have been drinking lots of water. I will prop myself up again (my baby girl slept with me last night so I didn't use my pillow) and hopefully that will help. My throat feels so crappy that I skipped my Doxy tonight and headed for the Tums. I hope it helps a little.
Any advice? I am going to start the Prevacid tomorrow. Is that okay to take with the Doxy?  I am assuming the Doxy is my culprit?

My husband's acid reflux is flaring again and he suspects the cause is Doxy, which he started taking a couple of weeks ago. He's careful about trying to control it including: taking Nexium, stops eating 3 hours before bed, doesn't lie down for one full hour after taking the Doxy. We think the Doxy is helping his symptoms so hopefully he'll be able to keep the reflux under control.

PJ, baileygirl,

I'm also having the acid reflux issues (a bad case I might add) from doxy (400mg/day).  I get the acid taste and also nausea.  My GP thinks that a yeast infection in my esophagus may be part of the problem.  None of the acid reducers seems to far.  Let me know if you find a supplement of rx that helps.

I found that Prevacid worked well for me. I took it pretty consistently for about 6 mos. after my gallbladder surgery. Now I only need it occasionally.... I also have a jumbo bottle of tums - ha-ha (we probably ALL do!)

I am starting the prevacid today at dinner time.  He gave me samples of the kind that dissolve in your mouth.  My throat is still sore today but both my girls have colds (as well as husband) so I probably have a touch of what they have as well. Tis the season, huh?
