Hi, I am a 34 yr male, every time I've taken Viagra, it has caused a good amount of heart burn... Initially I didnt realise it but it lead to acid reflux, due to which I had recurrent episodes of severe sore throat. This was caused due to the burns the acid caused in the throat due to the reflux. Has anyone else noticed similar effects? Is there a way to curb the acid from rising up the esophagus or a remedy or medication that can be taken along with Viagra that can stop the reflux from happening or reduce the effects?

Sorry to hear of this side effect that you have with Viagra. I have had gerds for quite some time (years) and take one tab of omeprazole every day. I buy the generic on the shelf on sale at walgreens. This medicine takes care of my acid reflux very well. I also use Viagra but have not suffered like you. Not sure but possibly because I use omeprazole. I would consult with your doctor about the acid reflux and ask his or her advice. Good luck.
