> TCA's are all basic, so they should be helpful for acid reflux. In fact my gastroenterologist said his favorite medication for IBS is low dose amitriptyline (10 mg/day), and I had serious problems with acid reflux before starting nortriptyline a few years ago.
> I didn't know remeron aggravated acid reflux.
> Effexor and Ativan are unlikely to cause serious problems with doxepin. Is the doxepin to be only a sleep aid, or are you thinking along the lines of AD combination?

Hi z,

That's true about the TCAs. I had forgotten they were good for that. I used to have a lot of stomach problems until I started taking doxepin years ago.

Remeron doesn't aggrivate acid reflux but it enhances appetite and my mother already has a hard time keeping food down. It might not be a good side effect for her.

I'm just thinking of doxepin or other sedating medication in low dosage for her to help with anxiety. The Ativan is not enough for her.
