I'm new here, though I've been suffering from gerd for more than 3 years.  Currently, I'm in the midst of one of my most severe gerd episodes and have been taking prilosec and now pepcid.  My left leg is now retaining water and my tummy feels really bloated.  Are those side effects of prilosec or pepcid?  Anybody else experience that?

Hello and Welcome to HealingWell.  I am concerned about the leg swelling which could be caused by many other medical things.  I would like to suggest to check with your physician.

Again welcome and we have a new members forum if you would like to share a bit about you.

Take care
