A 32-year-old male asked:
is whitish phlegm being regurgitated consistent with gerd? (no heartburn) can pantoprazole become completely ineffective? can regurgitation cause dried plugged nose in morning?

? GERD???: Have several ?'s. With Gerd you're having stomach contents come back up your esophagus to your throat. It could look a little phlegm to you occasionally but most of the time I would think phlegm would come from chest. Pantoprozole is a Proton Pump Inhibitor.It tells the parietal cells in the stomach stop producing acid. Should not give you dry nose in AM.
