 severe gastric esophageal reflux and antidepressant medication

Has anyone had very bad gastric esophageal reflus (acid from the stomach
rises back up through the esophagus causing damage to the lips, tongue,
teeth, ears, throat and lungs) I have always been a depressed and
anxious person; however, in the summer of 95' I suddenly became very
fearful, depressed and anxious and at the same time developed a very
severe case of reflux. I was not able to eat much therefore I lost 12
pounds. I was endoscoped and nothing was found; but two years later the
reflux continues.
I am very sensitive to medications: Prozac, Elavil and Remeron made my
problem worse. I am thinking of MAOI's or Dexedrine. I have a pf Dr.

Check with your doctor, but you may find that Losec (omeprazole) will
assist here.
