Acid Reflux / GERD Message Board


Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index


Hi


My LPR started when I took tricyclic antidepressants for two months. I took doxepin 50mg at bedtime, and after two months I got reflux and ever since it has stayed with me. I know of two other people who developed reflux when they took tricyclic antidepressants and it stayed with them. After I got the reflux, I found out that this group of medications have anti-cholinergic properties which will decrease the LES pressure, making it weak and loose. I now have decided to have surgery to correct this problem as there are no medications that can increase the LES pressure back to normal. I never had any problems with reflux/GERD/LPR before this and could eat and drink anything I wanted to. I am 26 years old and can't believe that a pill can do this to you, when your family doctor turns around and tells you that it is a very safe people. I should also mentioned that I didn't have depression, I had anxiety due to a break up after a 6 year relationship and had hard time falling sleep/staying sleep. But my idiot family doctor told me that I have depression and this pill would help with the sleeping, even though I told him that I have anxiety and not depression (I am in the medical field myself).
