Hi all! Just wanted to ask if any of you have noticed that taking vitamins give you acid reflux. My friend told me she has trouble with vitamins and calcium and can't take those because the reflux gets bad. I hadn't even thought about that. I has to take a test this past week where I had to catch some specimans so the doctor could see what is going on with my digestive track. I had to stop taking my vitamins and antacids for a few days while running this test. Oddly enough I felt better and the reflux pretty much was gone. Is that weird or what? I was wondering if anyone has had a similiar experience.??
I take calcium citrate w/D and lots of Rolaids (which have calcium). I hadn't been taking hardly any Rolaids since I've been on Prilosec, but now am since Prilosec doesn't seem to be working. Could all the extra calcium be the culprit?
I just remember, ten years ago I did get acid reflux from taking 500 mg Vit C daily. After that I never take Vit C anymore. I just get it from fruits.
Really? How quickly did the reflux clear up after stopping taking the Vit C? I have been swallowing on average 1000mg a day but stopped mid way last week. Up until this morning had the acid pretty much all day. Then this afternoon its vamoosed....go figure!
I always took vitamins in the evening after dinner and never had a problem with reflux. Imena now and again if I ate something I would get reflux but took an antacid and was ok. I do now take diabetic meds and the reflux became impossible. Now I take pills for it everyday cause I have to take the diabetic meds.
