Discussions that mention cimetidine

Acid Reflux / GERD board

Hi Nagsrope,

I am reluctant to return to PPI's as the side effect of Protium that I noticed when on it for 3 months was an increase in my male breast tissue. For many years I took the H2 blocker cimetidine which also had this unfortunate side effect for me. Your GP or consultant will be sympathetic to this fact and will suggest an alternative PPI. They did not eleviate my reflux in any event so the side effect was just not worth having. If they work for you it would be worthwhile finding one with no side effects. I have not experienced your other symptoms.

Hope helps
