    Recently, within the past week or so, I feel like I always need to clear my throat after eating. The only change I've made in my diet is that I stopped drinking coffee several weeks ago. I used to drink 3-4 cups a day but now I just have a cup of tea in the morning. I did a search on Google and GERD came up often. I don't have any other symptoms of GERD (heartburn, regurgitation, trouble swallowing, any type of pain). I plan on seeing a gastroenterologist if this problem persists. In the meantime, I wanted to ask, has anyone else had a similar issue?

    my wife had been complaining about a tickeling feeling in her throat after drinking hot liquids, she was prescribed prilosec for GERD. She had no other symptoms.

    Thanks. You said that she was prescribed Prilosec, so I assume you mean that it was Rx strength rather than OTC? Also, how often does she need to take it? On the website, they indicate a 14-day regimen, 3x a year. However, they seem to imply that it doesn't apply for GERD. Taken from the website...

    "Prilosec OTC works for 24 hours with one pill a day. It is indicated for a 14-day course of treatment, up to three times a year.

    If you would like to use Prilosec OTC for more than the three indicated 14-day courses of treatment, you should first consult your doctor. Here’s why: While Prilosec OTC is safe, it’s also strong enough to mask more serious conditions. By talking with your doctor first, you can make sure you’re not missing a bigger problem, such as GERD."

    you know it may be the OTC version but it seems to be helping...she doesn't have a serious problem though so it may not be similar to your situation.
