My doctor diagnosed me with GERD because of a persistent cough and increasingly frequent heartburn. She told me to try Prilosec OTC, which I did for about a week. One day at work I had such a dizzy spell I thought I was going to pass out. It took hours to go away. I called my doctor and she prescribed Prevacid 30mg once a day. I'm only on my third day and am already having dizzy spells and fatigue, a slightly runny nose and what feels like post-nasal drip.
If I call my doctor again, what else could I try without so many side effects? I was thinking of trying to continue the Prevacid, but only 15mg a day. Thanks.
