  • From this study (3 days ago):

  • Started psych meds in May 2013. Had bad bout with acid reflux from April to November 2013. Recently stopped taking Protonix for my reflux, as it was not helping the burning mouth issue and had adverse side effects. Try to take minimal prescribed medications. Burning mouth symptoms started in December 2014 after a sinus infection and bronchitis and 2 rounds of antibiotics. Only been on thyroid medicine for 2 months.
