Do the ppi's such as Nexium (esomeprazole) and other prescription ppi's work to help laryngopharyngeal reflux?
Will taking an OTC medicine such as Prilosec or zegerid interfere with prescription meds such as metformin?
Something close..: There isn't any med that works like Oxybutynin that is available otc, but meds such as diphenhydramine/meclizine/dexbromphiramine etc..Can have similar (but less potent) effects on the bladder muscles.
