Acid reflux/heartburn not allowed to take Omeprazole
Hello I was wondering if anyone can help?
I am currently taking methotrexate 15mg which is to be increased this week to 25mg for psoriatic arthritis
Prior to taking methotrexate I used to take omeprazole due to acid reflux and it stopped my stomach from getting upset while taking naproxen which helped with my swelling in joints.
I was told I could no longer take omeprazole while on methotrexate and this has stopped me being able to take naproxen as well.
Aside from the other side effects I am struggling mostly with terrible heartburn and acid reflux and have tried peppermint tea and mints but am really unsure what I can take that is safe while on this medication and I spoke to my GP last week who advised me to tough it out until I next see my rheumatologist.
Does anyone else suffer with this or do you have any tips?
Thanks in advance
