Aciphex, Hypersalivation, and GERD.

I was given Aciphex to take while taking a prescribed antibiotic 5 years ago. I developed terrible hypersalivation while taking the aciphex. Which, incidentally, stopped when I stopped taking the aciphex.  Shortly after taking the aciphex I started experiencing symptoms of GERD. I still have the GERD to this day - some days its worse than others. I connect a straight line between the taking of aciphex and the development of GERD.  Is this a reasonable conclusion?  or is there some other more likely explanation?

Hi bklyn, thanks for your reply.

I drink one, occasionally two, cups of coffee or tea each day. A caffein-free soda perhaps every-other day. I otherwise eat a low fat diet, and drink plenty of water. Breakfast is generally cold cereal, occasionally fried eggs. Lunch is soup and a PB&J sandwich, or simply a cold-cuts and cheese on rye. Dinner is a protein (mostly chicken, occasionally beef, pork, fish or tofu, or beans), two veggies, and a starch. I've been tested for food allergies and none were found,
