Hi
I take Cipralex, and get heartburn and acid reflux very often. I never thought that the two may be related. Thanks for bringing this point up. I take different over the counter acid reducers, heartburn relief, and antacid tablets. They seem to help most of the time, especially taking the acid reducer tablets every day. It's a pain in the butt to get the heartburn, but even if it is from the medicine, I personally will still take the cipralex because for me it works well.

Hi

Sorry to take so long to respond to your post. I am not familiar with the medication, so I do not have any experience with it. Have you read the leaflet that came with the prescription to see if chest pain is an adverse reaction? Perhaps the chest pain is anxiety induced. Anxiety can manifest in physical symptoms such as chest pain, and even acid reflux issues.

I hope you will find a solution that will help you feel better. In the mean time, try some deep breating exercises and just hang in there!

Keep in touch!

I have been on Cipralex 10mg now for a bout 5 months and I occasionally go through bouts of bad chest pains. Ive went to the ER and had a EKG to see if its my heart and they say it looks fine. I also now have horrible heart burn and stomach pains that the doc says is from acid reflux. I try to watch what I eat and not eat within 3 hours of going to bed.. but sometimes it doesnt matter what I do it comes back.. I was wondering if anyone else experiences this?
