Diagnosed small hiatal hernia and reflux. No ulcers or masses. Will celebrex (celecoxib) agravate reflux symptoms?

Yes but: Dr. Howe's right. You could tray taking mylanta or maalox (generic forms are disgusting!) 30 minutes before the meal you take the Celebrex (celecoxib) with and one hour after. It might help.

Eat more fruits & veggies in smaller portions more often, & less fat & less protein (in a low fat form). ...Read more

I've been on Nexium (esomeprazole) for 17 years and stopped it a few weeks ago. Before i started it i had gastric and duodenal ulcers. Will these return?

Stopping Nexium (esomeprazole) may cause ulcers to form due to increase acid production. After 17 years, your body may have charged and ulcers may not form after stopping nexium (esomeprazole). There is no guarantee. ...Read more
