From this study (5 months ago):
I Have Been On These Medication For Awhile But I Have Been On GabApentin For A Year. My Sugar Levels Have Gone Up And Have Gain Weight.
Was diagnosed with SLE and Lupus Nephritis Dec 2012, I was on prednisone for 9 months, completely off a month ago. Cellcept since Dec 2012, lisinopril and plaquenil since around feb 2013.
Started getting difficulty swallowing and nausea that comes and goes (not necessarily at the same time) about 2 months ago when I was on 5mg of prednisone and chalked it up to tapering side effects. No longer on prednisone, nausea has continued, Dr. put me on Ranitidine 2 weeks ago and the horrible gagging everytime I swallowed subsided, but it's still difficult to swallow a lot of the time (food, not saliva, drink, or even pills.) It seems to get worse randomly after I eat, but I'm wondering if it's not just stomach acid but something bigger.
Rheumatologist told me that putting me on a PPI might be the next course of action rather than Ranitidine because PPIs promote the healing of injuries caused by stomach acid, but I'm wondering if I need to go see a GI about this since I let it go unchecked for so long.

I have read that the best time of day to take a Baby Aspirin to prevent a heart attack or stroke is at night. However, not all the studies agree that the time of day matters. According to your own physician, what time of day is considered the best to receive the optimum benefits?
