Does Dovato cause oesophageal hypersensitivity?

Hello, Dovato is causing me oesophageal hypersensitivity shortly after I take it. I feel a burning sensation in my throat, which fades away but doesn’t go away completely the next day. Could this be a serious side effect?

Thank you,


Hi Alex, how are you doing?

Oesophageal hypersensitivity is not a specific side effect of Dovato. Does this happen with anything else you take e.g., other tablets or when you eat?

How long has this been going on? If it has been ongoing for a few days you should speak to your doctor about this.

    Hi Alex, how long have you been taking Dovato? If this doesn’t get better you will need to mention it it your doctor.

    It doesn’t happen with food or any other tablet. It has started since the first day I took it. The peak is few minutes after I swallow the pill – I feel my esophagus burning. The sensation weakens the next day, but it’s still there. Funny thing is that I recently switched to Dovato from Triumeq and it never happened with the latter.
