Hi folks have anyone here been on montelukast and suffered from acid reflux as a side effect? I have been on this medication for nearly 3 years. I never had any issue with side effects. However my acid reflux can not be manage by medication and I have tried them all, plus dietary advice, raising my bed and currently have a good bmi of 21.3. I am currently taking 20 mg of ranitidine twice a day and Rabeprazole once a day.
My doctor has decided to refer me to ENT to see what other medication or treatment they can give or do for me. He thinks maybe it may be the montelukast which is irritating my stomach. It could be a red herring he said. I am reluctant to stop montelukast (one of his suggestions)as my asthma has been really good (even though it winter)
I do have an appointment with my respiratory consultant next month for my asthma. The doctor said I could ask my consultant about stopping it. He did say last June that he wouldn't change anything.
So I waiting for a referral to ENT while managing my symtoms of salty taste in mouth, sickness and heartburn. The sickness and salty taste (new symptom) being the worse of it.
Any thoughts and suggestions please
