Reflux issues - I think it's important not to eat too soon before lying down to sleep. Apparently foods like oatmeal, fresh vegetables including fennel and celery , some fruits, parsley, moderate amounts of ginger, and so on, can be helpful for reflux.
I expect you already know about the lifestyle things, small but more frequent meals, and so forth. Is coated prednisone available where you live? I take meds right after eating breakfast. Gees, I could have written your post about myself. I am experiencing the exact same symptoms, starting about 6 weeks ago. I don't know why it flared up now 2 years into PMR, and now at 6. It's abated a little, but only after stopping all milk products and even fruit.
I have had some improvement so am living in hope. Nausea and silent reflux remain. Aparently there are many different probiotics, and it is important to get the right one for the problem. Of course it is not available in NZ, so he is currently trying to source it. Join this discussion or start a new one?

Stomach issues from Prednisone? New discussion Reply. I have been taking pantoprazole a proton pump inhibitor for GERD for over 10 years. I have not had any stomach issues ecept when I've been off the pantoprazole for days.
Marla mphooey. I was pretty sure Prednisone could cause acid reflux I do have Omeprazole to take but when I started having the other symptoms I didn't feel it was helping with those. Glad to hear the Pantoprazole resolves any stomach issues you have. Prednisone has so many side effects at least there are some things that can be controlled!! LayneTX Marla Are you lucky? Also, taking calcium with foods and NOT with Pred. Divide your calcium in day, at a time. Do you have diarrhea or loose stools?
Magnesium can cause loose stools. Probiotics helped with that, refrigerated 12 billion active cells, pill form. Oregonjohn-UK Marla Are you keeping any other meds you take away from the pred. For example Preds with food very important at breakfast anything else at Lunch or Supper?
Marla Oregonjohn-UK. Well I take the Prednisone first thing in the morning. I used to take it even before eating but have tried to change that and have breakfast first. Then maybe after an hour I take a couple other meds I have been on for a long time. However since you have brought this up I think I will wait till lunch before taking other meds. I was taking quite a few other supplements but stopped them all as I was suspiscious that maybe one of them was causing these stomach issues.
It hasn't really made a difference though. I may go back to taking the Omeprazole twice and day and then as you suggest not take any other meds at breakfast except for the Pred. I appreciate the suggestion. I've been trying whatever I can think of outside of what my GP suggested. I have been on higher prednisone since Sept. Anhaga erika Tylenol is not known for helping with PMR pain, so you might as well skip it. If withdrawing from pred causes return of PMR symptoms, you aren't ready to reduce.
There may be pred withdrawal symptoms, which are very similar, but in that case the pain should be tolerable and clear within a few days. Marla erika I went off dairy at the suggestion of my GP. She wants me to see a gastroenterologist as well if I don't improve. If you notice any other effects, check with your healthcare professional.
