Discussions that mention prevacid

Open to All Other Health Topics board


I have this lump sort of thing going on in my throat, i wasn't having any trouble until my doctor switched the medicine I was on from Protonix to Prevacid for acid reflux, as soon as I switched that is when the "hard to swallow" thing occured. She said it has nothing to do w/the switch and suspects something called Globus, which I doubt, does anyone know anything about Globus ??? I have thyroid issues that run in the family, I been been tested for thyroid recently and the tests are normal, but 2 years ago I was borderline. I am going to an ENT on friday and I suspect he will say he cannot find anything, does anyonr have any ideas ??? Like I said i was fine until I switched meds.......

It sounds like the prevacid doesn't work as well for you as the protonix...what you're describing sounds like reflux without the "burn".

Are you overweight? Do you lie down within 2 hours after eating? Both those things can make reflux worse.

Ask your doctor to do a test with you...try the protonix again for a week or so, and see if it helps.
