Aspirin and nsaids: Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and Aspirin (un-coated) all can cause gastric irritation (stomach bleeds) which can have an adverse effect on gastro-esophogeal reflux disease. There are many good acid reducers on the market-(blockers and buffers) that can offset the problems if a medical condition requires their use (nsaids- for arthritis).
