I have acid reflux that is so bad I am unable to lie down. I have a bad chest infection and my fibro doctor told me never to take prednisone again. Unfortunately, I picked up a bad chest infection and Urgent Care gave me script for Aumentin and prednisone. I have chest pain and do not wan my reflux to get worse. What can I substitute for prednisone and will Augmentin made my reflux wore as well?
