Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 days ago):
Am taking Prilosec - due to an endoscopy that my GI doctor did. Indicated raw, irritated stomach lining. I do have Celiacs / which is very well controlled and GI said looked "non-existent". ENT also indicated throat is raw and irritated and swollen due to acid reflux. Could this be caused by Cymbalta? It is the only drug I'm taking.
From this study (3 days ago):
Currently take pantoprazole twice daily for acid reflux and stomach upset. Has worked fine for years. Started taking Pristiq and acid reflux has returned.
From this study (1 week ago):
My Dr. says it may cause heart enlargement and orders stress tests and echo.
