I have a viral infection at the moment and I am on anti bs, and I am on the mend. Prior to this starting found I was using my ventolin due to tight chested etc., have been doing some hearty coughing and hence the acid reflux/heartburn is in the fore again. Doctors up at my surgery do not think there is a connection with this and asthma and purely a coincidence. They prescribe omeprazole that works great with me but will only give it short term at my witts end what to do. any help would be appreciated.
