Hello doctor,

Male age 29, suspect I have LPR.

Many times feel need to clear throat, most significant always after meal 5 - 10 mins need to clear throat for perhaps 30 mins or more, feeling of “phlegm” stuck behind throat.

Also feel the same sometime when going to bed, feeling of clearing throat non stop.

Persistent for more than more than a year already, no feeling of heartburn thus likely to be LPR rather than gerd.

Please advice medication we can buy from here the dosage and duration? Previously have been on Omprazole (PPI) for acid reflux many years back but have read H2 may be better in treating LPR as less side effects?

Could Dr please advice any H2 medication like pepcid etc as well as dosage/instructions?
