I tried Pantaloc, which sent me to ER, had some weird esophageal spasm. Then I tried Nexium, which was no better than taking a sugar pill, since it did nothing to help my stomach. The gastro specialist I saw said I didn't have Reflux or IBS, but he felt some motility problem. It doesn't matter what it is, I know it is caused by anxiety, even though I don't feel very anxious. I even had the H-pylori breath test which came back negative.

I have researched gastro problems inside out, but still haven't got anywhere. The Germans use Peppermint oil for functional dyspepsia, so I am going to give this a true go. If that doesn't do the trick I am going to try Zelnorm.

What is interesting my sister who does have bad reflux and takes Losec, which helps her, tried Celexa. She said she had a bad reaction to it. She said it caused her lungs to fill up and cough all the time. Since she is on puffers for her so-called "asthma", she got scared. I told her that relux can cause coughing and asthma. I said, what probably happened is that the Celexa caused really bad acid reflux that went straight back down into her lungs. She said celexa was the worst for her lungs, and the only SSRI that didn't affect her lungs too bad was Prozac.

I think I will give Effexor XR a try. My sister tried it and she said it was like being on acid. Obviously she didn't like it.

What about Lexapro? Does it have a bad rep for stomach problems? Because it is Celexa with the R isomer removed, maybe it doesn't have the same effect on the stomach. Just a thought.
