Default Aciphex

Doctor prescribed Aciphex for difficulty swallowing due to reflux acid up to larynx and pharynx. Started to work but about 5 days after taking this I developed a swollen and sore tongue and severely dry mouth. Had to stop taking. They switched me to Protonix and same thing happened. I need to have PPI drugs but I am afraid to start another one. Swollen tongue incident was very scary.

Default Sore Tongue

Last week, I went to the Dr. because I had heartburn and GERD. The Dr. gave me some samples of Aciphex and an Rx. It works great for the heartburn and GERD, but my tongue is sore, thank goodness no swelling. At first, I thought I had drank something too hot but this has been going on for about 5 days now. I called the Dr.'s office this morning to let them know and to request a different medication. Needless to say, I did not take my Aciphex this morning.
