I have been told I have 'silent reflux' which gives me a dry cough, this has ruined my life for the past 15 years (another story) and I also take drugs for high blood pressure and arthritis.
I take 20mg omeprazole twice a day. I am told this stops ALL acid production - so why am I still coughing as much, and why am I gaining weight so rapidly when I'm being very careful about what I eat?
I also understand that the BP drugs Bisoprolol and Lasartan can give you a 'dry cough'. Should I go back to my GP and ask her about the possible drug interaction, she's somewhat dismissive of any suggestions, or just stop taking the Omeprazole (as its obviously not helping)
