    Question Bronchitis and acid reflux

    My husband has a hiatul(spelling) hernia. He has had it for awhile and causes acid reflux. He has been taking 1 pill a day of Prilosec OTC which contains 20mg I think. He was doing well on it.

    Lately he has been coughing more and getting bronchitis very easily. I told him that maybe he needs to take more Prilosec, and his hernia might be getting worse.

    Can undertreated acid reflux cause bronchitis?

    Re: Bronchitis and acid reflux

    I had my own inquiries on this subject. I'm becoming convinced that my reflux began shortly after I received treatment for a bad case of bronchitis 2 years ago. My GP at the time put me on a 7-day antibiotic treatment and the bronchitis went away, though I had a cough stick with me for a few weeks afterward.

    Four months after the bronchitis went away the reflux started (though at the time, I didn't know that's what it was). It continued (untreated) on and off for the next 2 years before becoming worse this year.

    I'm thinking there might be some relation between the 2 ailments.

    I hope your husband feels better soon.
