Have had chronic allergies since I was young. I have acid reflux and post nasal drip pretty bad. Started prilosec, and nasacort (triamcinolone). Anything else to add?
Avoidance measures: In addition to a daily intranasal steroid spray like Nasacort, (triamcinolone) it is important to determine exactly what you could be sensitized to in order to practice appropriate avoidance measures which is a mainstay of allergy treatment. If medications and avoidance are not effective or not feasible allergen immunotherapy (allergy shots) could be an option as well. See an allergist for skin testing. ...Read more

Prilosec isn't working well for my acid reflux is there another medicine that would work better ?
Maybe: You can take the medication twice a day if necessary. You should also be evaluated by a GI specialist to see if you have a bacteria called h. Pylori that is worsening your reflux. This maybe treated with antibiotics if necessary. If these medications do not work and you have persistent reflux, surgical options are available. ...Read more
I started taking Plavix once a day and I also take Prevacid (lansoprazole) and on occasion Prilosec. Is there any interactions with these drugs?
Absolutely: There is a well know interaction between plavix and proton pump inhibitors. Plavix is a prodrug(inactive) and is activated in the liver. This process of activation is blocked by proton oump inhibitors. Specifically with nexium and prilosec, also somewhat with other ppis. The only one safe to use is dexilant (dexlansoprazole) and possibly protonix. Or change plavix to effient or brilinta under guidance of MD ...Read more

Not at all: No they are all, as you said PPI's and appear to provide similar relief. Some are more expensive than others and drug companies would like you to believe their PPI works better than the generic. It is my belief that in general, you should stick with generic medications. Do not fall for the marketing hype. ...Read more
