Problems with Gerd and meds

Posted By Mary on November 14, 1998 at 22:03:40:

For the past 7 months I have had recurrent pericarditis.  I have bee
on prednisone, naproxyn, ultram, ibuprofen, indocene, ecotrin, colchesine
various codeine formulas, am taking iron and folic acid.  I was taking
prilosec but stopped a week or so ago.  Currently I am taking the prednisone,
colchesine, and lanoxin.  I did have to take naproxsyn the other day,
to suppress the pain.  I am getting serious pains in what I think is my esophagus
and upper stomach.  I have had the acid reflux problem for a couple
of years. I do have to take some of these medicenes to avoid a flare
of pericarditis, but have a lot of pain.  My doctor said to take
prilosec and mylanta.  Any suggestions?
Thank you
