Sorry Ciel, I don't know about your above question.

Recent reflux article:

"Acid Reflux Drugs: Public Citizen Petitions FDA for Stricter Warnings"

Quote
Some such risks, including bone fractures, infections and heart rhythm abnormalities, are listed in fine print on the drugs' packaging. But the potential for the drugs to exacerbate acid reflux when patients discontinue use -- a relatively recent observation -- is not.

Ciel, and empty stomach definitely can make reflux worse. The trick is smaller, more frequent meals.
 
Sorry it took me so long to see this.

Just saw this too! I eat smaller meals all day. I also take 40mg. of omprazole everyday, and zantac as needed. It helps.

Yes, I eat small amounts throughout the day, and if I get too hungry and my stomach gets too empty then I have acid pain. I'm on Ranitidine daily. Also, if I don't drink enough water I find I have an increase in pain.

Yes, and it's taken me 4 years of this to finally realize, over the last few cycles, that it was happening! Mmmm, what a nice little extra treat, eh?  ~)

One of the investigators, Dr. Yoon Kong Loke, told Reuters Health by email, "Where possible, we recommend that the acid suppressing drugs should be stopped while patients are on antibiotics. The combination of both drugs has harmful effects extending above that of each drug."

"Chronic Heartburn Could Spur Asthma in Some Patients"

Quote
In this study, researchers used a new, specially designed catheter that measures levels of acid reflux exposure within the patient's airway. They believe that this new method (known by the acronym HMII) was much more effective than conventional techniques in identifying patients with GERD-induced asthma.

Researchers have shown that a previously suggested link between the use of proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) and gastrointestinal infections with Campylobacter and Salmonella is due to the characteristics of the patients and not the drugs themselves.

Dr. Femke A. Mauritz told Reuters Health by email that because "in over 40% of children GERD persists or recurs 10- to 15-years after laparoscopic Thal fundoplication, it is crucial to implement routine long-term follow-up, preferably using objective measurements."
