I've had severe acid reflux for years, which seems to get worse all the time. For the last few years, I have had the feeling of a lump in my throat also, and I'm on Prevacid and Reglan to ease the symptoms. I've just been diagnosed with Osteoporosis (it just keeps gettin' better and better around here), and the doctor prescribed Fosamax. I looked it up on the internet, and people with disorders of the esophagus or difficulty swallowing are not supposed to take this. I asked the pharmacist and he said it might not be a good idea. When I asked my gastro doc, he said it is fine to take it.
Is anyone else with GERD taking this drug? Any help is appreciated!
