Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Good afternoon, I am Dr Elliot. An alternative to a PPI is a H2 antagonist such as cimetidine. It may be with trying this instead.
I can try, but this is an assumption. Acid reflux can present in many ways, typically it causes your gastric irritation and pain, but if acid is irritating the throat it can cause secretion from the sinuses, irritation of the throat and upper airways and can the the cause of chronic coughs. The only way to determine if it is the cause is to tackle the acid first, a PPI is certainly our first line option but other medications can help.
Sorry, by assumption I am assuming the acid reflux is causing your symptoms without examining you to physically examine the sinuses, check your throat and listen to your chest
Good evening, I am just following up from the other day, was this of any benefit to you? thanks
