I was experiencing bad acid reflux (silent type with bad sore thoarts) for years. My Dr. prescribe nortriptyline for some chronic pain I was having and after one 10mg dose my sore throat was nearly gone and after my second dose, I was feeling great with my sore throat. However, the nortriptyline didn't get rid of my pain. Is nortriptyline capable of helping with acid reflux?

Just to mention, I've taken Prilosec when my acid reflux "acts up." It takes a little while to become effective (for me). The only side-affect I've experienced with it is dry skin. If I take a couple of ant-acids once reflux begins, it usually takes care of the problem. However, if its severe, I turn to the Prilosec just long enough to be back to normal. Of course, check with your doctor re any medication interactions that you might have. Best wishes - C.E.
