does anyone else with GERD that takes prozac/fluoxitine, get extremely bad flare-ups when taking in capsule form? or even believe prozac capsules are what Jumpstarted their acid reflux? I recently had to switch to tablets for my antidepressants, because the capsules were giving me awful heartburn evertime I took my meds

      Whenever I took Prozac (switched to Lexapro) I’d get horrible acid reflux after I took the pill.

      I don't have GERD but do get acid reflux. I noticed it started happening after taking my Prozac in the AM but as never saw it listed as a side effect. Sucks but good to know I'm not the only one. Wouldn't even think to switch to tablets! Thanks for sharing!

      Yeah that's part of why I stopped taking it, capsule Gabapentin also gives me similar acid reflux and tastes even worse so I have to take tablets of that too

      My gerd got diagnosed *after* I started the prozac capsules. The gerd symptoms got a lot better after I stopped taking it, but my anxiety makes it flare up. Now I've started taking it again and my acid reflux is back in full swing.

        @spookybunny yes same! It's wild, everyone I've asked says prozac capsules cause heartburn /especially/ people with gerd but it's nowhere on any of the side effect lists doctors don't even mention it as a side effect. I'd recommend switching to the tablets if your insurance will let you! Causes way less flareups for me personally
