So i've been to the ENT about 5 times now since my reflux continues. This is mostly at night time when sleeping. The head of the bed is raised, i'm taking Omeprazole 40mg 2x daily, and 1 Zantac 150mg right before going to sleep. I still feel acidic sensation in my chest and throat and my sleeping is still disrupted.
They want to do an exam called Fluoroscopy esophagram barium swallow, and also, set up an appointment with a Gastroenterologist so they can check down my stomach. My ENT diagnosed me as now was having Gastroesophagael reflux with nighttime laryngospasms. He even wants to set an appointment for me with a speech therapist??(don't really see how that could help)
So my questions are:
- Is another TKI (maybe Sprycel) better against reflux?
- Is another TKI better against eyebrow hair loss? (my eyebrows are thinning every day)
Although i'm doing well (MMR at 6 months w/ Tasigna 150mg 2x daily), i'm really thinking about possibly asking for a switch because it is really getting annoying. Any thoughts appreciated. Thanks.
