Aciphex A Reflux Medication And Pregnancy

0 Replies
cryss c. - January 28

I am on aciphex 20 mg (2 tabs) twice a day which is pretty high. I thought that I had reflux really bad but found out that I have esophogeal spasms. The GI doctor wanted to put me on meds for this but I told him that my husb. and I are trying to get pregnant so it would be better to stay on Aciphex since it does help my reflux like symptoms (pain in my chest etc.). My concern is that this med. is a cat. B medication I think?? which means that they havent done a lot of testing to see if it is safe during pregnancy. They have tested it on animals while pregnant and they were fine but havent done a lot of testing yet on humans. I was wondering if anyone has ever been on this while pregnant or some other reflux medication. Should I go on something else like Prilosec or Nexium? Also, what about being on this and br___t-feeding? Thanks so much!!!!!!!
