... Also 2 weeks on meds is not very long Ranitidine didn't help me, so maybe you do need to try a PPI If you do once things settle down try to get to the lowest dose possible, as they have side effects of hindering uptake of vitamins and minerals Never come off them cold turkey though as rebound acid reflux is not pleasant.
