I was taken off Nexium and put on Lansoprazole before Christmas. I am now getting a very dry throat and as well as being awakened by burning throat from time to time at night, I am now being awakened by this and have to keep taking sips of water through the night. Also my mouth is starting to get quite sore from the dryness.

I find this side effect intolerable and can't bear to put up with another night like this so won't be taking any more of these tablets. I am really concerned that I will suffer rebound symptoms as I won't be weaning. The only other PPI left to try is Pantoprazole, but that has dry mouth as a side effect too.

I have started taking Gaviscon Advance hoping this will help with rebound.

Has anyone else suffered dry mouth from their medication and has anything else helped?
