major acid reflux due to meds - any advice???

hi there

just found your board tonight. i'm newly dx with lupus nephritis. dx - lupus november 2005, after yrs of being sick. you know how that goes.

i'm on cellcept, prednisone, plaquenil, tried 3 Rx for acid reflux. on nexium now. not working.

if anyone has any suggestions for the pharmaceutical exp going on in my little body - love to hear them.

aside from that... i'm really happy to have found this board. i'm blown away by all the threads. wow, i don't feel so alone. and at the same time, it sucks that they are so many of us out there.


gentle hug and cheer to all

Re: major acid reflux due to meds - any advice???

Lushine welcome! I'm also having issues with acid reflux but mostly in the mornings. (I have SLE and was diganosed in the fall after many years of being sick & ruling all other things out). I'm currently on high doses of Prednisone, Neurontin (no more Plaquenil due to eye side effects) & Cellcept - plus a zillion other little things.
All of which I take in the mornings after breakfast.

So I'll be interested to see if anyone can offer up some advice on this.

Again welcome to the boards!
Ani

hi ani

thanks for the welcome and post. much appreciated.

seems like were on the same schedule of Dx and meds. as soon as i get news on the acid reflux. i'll write in. i'm really struggling with this meds cocktail.

fresh air seems to be the only thing that helps the reflux right now. when i can get out there.

cheers, lucy
