hi all i,m back again this time is there no end to problems with gerd as i started taking ppi,s a year ago it was great for a while now there working ok then recently i have a had a eye infection and eye lid inflammtion which is called Blepharitis which just came up from no where, and can get really painful on nights, but i have that had it now and again since 10 years ago, so the eye doctor told me take this antibotic for 3 months then i noticed the ppi,s where not working after 5 days so i asked if they could the antibotic would stop the ppi,s working he said no ! so i did a liitle reading on the net, and it can actually make your eyes sore and dry being on ppi,s but as i had this condition before when not taking ppi,s it make sence why it just started up for nothing  after taking ppi,s for a year and my acid has starting getting up the pipe in to my mouth,  if i dont take the antibotic the eye wont heal and clear also it will heal for a while and can come back so i,m buggered either way. it seems you take something to combat one thing then another for another ...... then you end taking  10 tablets a day sad

Hi there bokbok...I understand your frustration. Unfortunetly, sometimes this is how it is...annoying, I KNOW!

I am sorry you are feeling like this!!!

Do you have the eye infections with any ppi you have taken? The reason I ask is because maybe this is a side effect you having with this particular one, and that you won't get it if you maybe try a different one. Just a suggestion.

I wish you could get relief from this.

hi no its cause get blephiritis every now and again but taking ppi,s makes me more prone to getting it thats how i ended up with cause, i,ve been ppi,s for a year and the eye has just flared up but my problem is i have to take the antibotic for 3 months but the ppi,s arn ,t working that well now i,m taking the antibotic but if dont  take the antibiotic the eye infection wont clear . so its catch 22 eyes   acid in mouth or  burning bad eyes that really hurts when sleeping ??????

I wonder this...would putting cold compresses on your eyes while you sleep assist in giving you some comfort for your eyes without taking the antibiotic?

hi i know what i,ve to do long term but for now i after go back to the docs cause i,m not liking the acid / sour taste in mouth and teeth again, as i need the antibotic to clear the eye lid infection which is the main cause of the eye problems. so i,ll go back and see them . eyes

I agree, talking with your doctor is a great idea. Let us know what they say!

I hope you find relief soon!
