Zantac for throat clearing and coughing - does it work?

I'm having congestion and clearing of my throat, some coughing, Dr says I have acid reflux, prescribed Zantac, I thought it was my sinus. Anyone have a similar experience and does Zantac work?

Not for clearing your throat but could help.

You're getting coughing because your stomach acids have surfaced and gone back down the trachea which leads to your lungs and it is killing the cilia that is designed to keep Phlegm down. Ultimately, you have to keep the acids in your stomach and zantac can help with that. You are certainly experiencing GERD symptoms and diet will also help. Read through this website for help combating GERD and you could reverse that effect. Good luck.
