Yes: Gerd can be exacerbated by many different drugs, including anticholinergics, beta blockers, bronchodilators used for asthma, calcium channel blockers, Dopamine agonists, sedatives, and tricyclic anti-depressants. It is best to talk with your physician if you are on other medications to see if they may cause your gerd symptoms to worsen.
