President Obama Sees ENT Doctor

President Obama on Saturday, Dec 6, 2014 saw an ENT for a sore throat several weeks in duration. An Army ENT physician conducted a fiberoptic laryngoscopy which suggested the sore throat was due to acid reflux. The exam apparently "revealed soft tissue swelling in the posterior throat", Mr. Obama's doctor, Ronny L Jackson, said in a statement.

Presumably, treatment entailed acid reflux medications as well ask lifestyle changes to minimize the reflux thereby resolving the sore throat.

What are some the medications that may have been recommended? You can actually find them OTC now or on Amazon:
