I have been taking Advil 200mg occasionally for neck pain. Sometimes none for a day or two, then possible 2 pills or 4 pills a day, in two separate doses. This has continued for about four months. Recently developed acid reflux, without heartburn, just a funny taste in my mouth.
My doctor prescribed Pantoprazole 40, and the pharmacist says that the Advil could have caused the acid reflux, and advised that I should avoid Advil and switch to Tylenol, which does not have as effective an anti-inflammatory affect. They also advise avoiding alcohol, tea and coffee, although even if I make no changes, there will be no serious interaction with the Pantoprazole, just that the Pantoprazole may not work as effectively.
