Subject: RE: Thyroid and Vocal Chord Inflammation
The anti-heartburn pills, depending on which ones are prescribed, can damage your vocal chords even further.

Acid reflux disease or GERD as we commonly call it could have been what did the original damage. Coughing is a major symptom of this along with the heartburn.

I am on Pepcid (Famatodine) 20 mg. twice a day and Prevacid 30 mg once a day for the rest of my life. My voice is now only good enough to sing raspy sea chanties.
