Brief Answer:
Right medications & safe.

Detailed Answer:

Hi,
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.

Post nasal drip of sinus infection can induce vomiting and heart burn (GERD). You are on right medications to cover both respiratory problem and gastric reflux.

As such, there is no drug interaction between these drugs (metformin, lexapro 20, augmentin and omeprazole), can be taken.

Meanwhile, follow these instructions to reduce acidity - Avoid spicy diet, smoking, alcohol consumption, keep 3 hours interval between dinner and sleep, and take 6 small meals instead of large 3. Keep head elevated with extra pillow during sleeping to prevent regurgitation.

Can you upload the report of liver enzymes? I would like to know values of liver enzymes.
Elevated liver enzymes could be due to overweight which can cause fatty liver.


Hope this answers your question, if you have additional questions or follow up questions then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your questions.


Wishing you a good health.

Brief Answer:
Slightly elevated, REGULAR EXERCISE

Detailed Answer:

Hello again,


Thanks for considering my answer and for your follow up.


Normal range in adults: (ALT 7 - 56 IU/L), (ALP 30 - 120 IU/L).

In your case, slightly elevated levels could be due to lexpro, metformin and certain extent of your diet.

As such, metformin is used in short term for PCOD.

Kindly discuss with your treating doctor, related to these medications.

Mean time needs to cut down alcohol, meaty diet, pain killers and sugar. Do regular walk for 30 minutes. Try to reduce your weight.


Hope, I have answered your query. Take care.
