I am a 46 year old white female. I have been alternating taking Trazadone and Benadryl for insomnia that I developed after starting acid reducing drugs. I have had severe heartburn for about 12 years after having my gall bladder removed. I was recently diagnosed with Gastritis and Barrett's Esophagus. I was also prescribed Prevacid, Famotidine, and Welchol which only covers up my symptoms and doesn't get to the root cause of the problem.
I am a 57 year old man who was diagnosed with gynecomastia & had a mammogram & sonogram to rule out anything else. My ENT has me taking Famotidine (Pepcid Rx) for the past 2-3 years & my Endocrinologist just recommended that my ENT have me stop taking it or replace it with a different medication to treat my severe acid reflux disease. I am yet to find out what my ENT has to say about this.
I have recently figured out that I have Achalasia. I have been taking famotidine for a number of years for the treatment of GERD. I would like to learn more about any interaction between these meds and gain practical knowledge that I may be able to employ outside the formal medical environment.
