Hi everyone. The first time I posted on my hubby's account and now I"m here on my own. I guess I'm having sympathy pains :p
I've been struggling with high stress and anxiety lately. My GERD has also been acting up pretty well, and I feel that's the main cause. The doc gave me Zantac, which he felt would work better than Prilosec that I had been using (OTC). He also gave me Lexapro. I've been taking it for two days. The first day I was a little queasy but it wasn't a big deal.. but the second night I was up alll night with horrible refux. I've never felt anything like it in my life! At 4am I could finally take a dose of Zantac and it helped. I'm afraid to eat anything today besides mashed potatoes and cheese, lol.
I really feel that the Lexapro triggered a worse episode of GERD! I see that heartburn can be a symptom but the main side effect is nausea.. has anyone else had this experience?
