The Effects of Reducing Stomach Acid on Post-tonsillectomy Pain

Start date: June 2008
Phase: Phase 4
Study type: Interventional

This study was designed to determine whether post-operative pain following a tonsillectomy can be reduced by adding an antacid-like medication to the medications taken after surgery. It is hypothesized that even a small amount of stomach acid backing up and entering the mouth can increase post-tonsillectomy pain. Therefore, the use of an antacid-like medication should help to decrease pain and reduce the amount of narcotic medication required for pain control.
