... I am wondering if there is anybody out there who has been on PPI's such as Prilosec or Nexium for a long time as I have. I started on Prilosec around 1997 and then Nexium for the last few years so that is about 6 years now with those potent meds.

... Hi, I was told by my Consultant to give them at least 4-8 wks, so one week is much too short time. I was prescribed Nexium 1 x 40 mg per day. Everyone reacts differently and improvement varies, I noticed a difference in 2-3 weeks. Keep taking them regularly and if no improvement in 4 weeks you may need a different brand or stronger prescription. All the best, Solofelix. (2 replies)

... Hi Kevin, I agree with Harry to an extent. Most are equal. What happens with me is: I take one kind like Prilosec or Zantac or Prevacid. It works for a while, like 6 mo. or 1 year. Then it does not seem to work as well. So my gastro. dr. changes me to another kind or name. That in turn work well for a while - some longer than others. I am now on Nexium. It is... (5 replies)
