I have gerd and have become alleric to PPIs after all these years and my acid spiked, all tests are fine, so my dr. Put me on famotidine 20mg and cyproheptad 4mg Both 2xs a day, this is my third full day of the cyproheptadine and i woke up a little confused and wanted water, but when drinking it tasted very salty to me. I drank a glass and half. Is this a side effect of one of these? The famotidin doesn't due much for my acid and i was raw before she added the other. My chest has started to feel tight too from all my acid. Also how do i quit these if i need to? Step down? Thank you for any help. Deb
