Acid reflux was found amongst people who took gabapentin, especially in people who were female, 60 plus, old and have been taking the drug for the past 1- 3 months along with aspirin and antidepressant. A study has been carried out among 37,022 people who have side effects while taking gabapentin. Among them, 44 out of 37,022 have acid reflux. Medications that can increase acid reflux and worsen gastroesophageal reflux disorder are benzodiazepine such as Xanax, diazepam and tricyclic antidepressant such as amitriptyline.
