I am wondering if headaches are common with gerd. I know the meds can give them to you also . I have tried tylenol (Rapid release gel ) and i have tried Excedrin and they dont really seem to help . Is advil or any other headache meds good to take .  I am currently taking Prilosec 20 mg so i am looking for something that will work with prilosec. Please if you can tell me whats good .

jenny, I've had headaches because my GERD gets into my sinuses. That could be it. No pain reliever seems to reach that pain: no NSAIDS like Naproxen or aspirin. Not sure how you should proceed but talk to a doctor.

Jenny, I don't believe that any OTC pain killers react with GERD meds, so unless you have a sensitivity to NSAIDs, you should be okay to try Advil, etc for your headaches. If in doubt about what you can take with medications, it is best to consult your pharamcist.

Another good place to look is www.rxlist.com. You can check for any interactions and side effects of your meds.

I hope you find an answer soon.
