Prilosec and Vaginitis

Hi,
My 91 yr. old mom is on Prilosec for a chronic cough of unknown origin after being tested w/ ENT, Gastroenterologist , and Pulmonoligist,, So they put her on Prilosec she weighs 107 lbs and is taking 40 mg 2x a day,
She now has angry vaginitis, could Prilosec cause this.
It seems she is having problems with her pH, but she also has tons of allergies here in NM the allergy capital
We are struggling to relieve her symptoms.
At 91 this is her only real problem
Thank you

  Hi and welcome to the GERD forum.

  I am sorry ur mom is dealing with an unknown issue...but if this is her only aliment at her age that is great !!

Sounds like she may have a yeast issue since u mentioned her Ph.....ask if DIFLUCAN  may help along with a probiotic....but have her tested for a yeast issue...sometimes those of us who have issues like this can be affected by the meds or how the med is compounded...(other ingredients)

It could be Post Nasal Drip...it can cause stomach issues as well as swallowing issues...even voice issues....coughing..etc...

Ask if an antihistamine may help.....and mayb changing from a PPI to a H2 blocker....


Talk to her Drs about some of these .....I hope she finds the help she needs to feel better.
