Anxiety problem

Hi Doc,

I have been on valdoxan and my P-doc changed me back onto cilift again. Was on Valdoxan. The first week on cilift was a lot better, but week two is different...i am a bit more anxious and it is driving me up the wall. I have also been having a weird burning sensation in the back of my mouth, sort of where my throat and mouth feels a bit weird. It comes and goes and when I don''t think about it, it kinda goes away....

It also can''t be hearburn, because I am on 40mg nexium with no heartburn.

What is this? Should I worry? Can it be burning mouth syndrome?

I am going to see my P-doc tomorrow again....please can you give me advise?

Is it also normal for the cilift to make you feel better the first week and then worse the next? Is it busy stabalising?

You should consult an ENT specialist to examine the back of your throat. Reflux can cause this sensation. Nexium is an excellent product to treat gastric ulcers but reflux can still occur. Try Gaviscon Advanced, three times daily before meals.

Cilift usually takes three to four weeks before optimal results occur. Your depression will stabilise and you can ask your doctor for Ativan to treat your anxiety in the interim.
