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

"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.

Re-raising this.  DD's appointment with bigwig ENT in Philly for vocal fatigue showed damage caused by reflux.  She is drinking alkaline water and I am trying to figure out what to feed her.  We have been doing a lot of grilled chicken and orzo with a veg lately.  We had pasta with sauce the other day and she told me she could feel the reflux.  Last night I made chicken tacos with a bit of fresh OJ and lime juice and again her reflux flared.  She has been on Prevacid and Zantac for the last few weeks.  I know tomatoes and citrus are not good for reflux but they have never bothered her before.  So, any tips on what to feed her? The Dr. recommended at cook book called Dropping Acid but her diet is already quite limited with dairy, egg, pn & tn allergies - and she is picky.  I always cook with onions and garlic and I guess I need to stop....

The name of that book is hilarious!

Everyone's triggers are different.  Tomatoes bother me, and too much fat bothers me.  If you put them together (read: Pizza) it's a disaster.  I won't lie - I do cheat from time to time, b/c I love pizza, baked ziti, lasagna, etc. 

Caffeine, carbonation, onions, garlic and chocolate are also common triggers.  As is alcohol, which I'm sure isn't her problem.  ;)

I hope you can find the culprit, and that it doesn't limit her diet too much further.
