Acid reflux flare up can cause slight irritation of the throat.
Somac dose can be increased to 40 mg daily from 20 mg to help with the irritation.
Another option is to use an antacid like Aluminium and Magnesium hydroxide liquid form.
Also lidocaine mouth wash solution 2% can be used to help with the irritation.
Please continue to avoid caffeine, alcohol and acidic food as much as possible.
Please also see your gastroenterologist for further discussion.
Endoscopy should be repeated within 3 yrs to monitor for any changes in the esophageal lining.
