Acid Reflux / GERD Message Board

Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index

I was diagnosed with GERD about 10yrs ago and this year has been quite unbearable. I've just started my third week of Nexium and while it has dramatically prevented and/or stopped anxiety, palpitations, and nausea, during the day and after eating, I still am exhibiting the pain under the rib cage and through the back (and of course excessive burping). Previously, I was on Prevacid and this seemed to help with the pain, but did nothing for the above-mentioned symptoms, which sent me to the ER in Jan. in fear I was having a heart attack.

My question is could I take 1 30mg Prevacid along with the 1 40mg Nexium I take daily, or does anyone have any recommendations for an OTC?

Also, in regards to when to take, the directions on Nexium say to take it an hour before a meal. I don't eat breakfast and exhibit early GERD symptoms within 2 hrs of waking. Could I take the Nexium after waking?

Thank You for the help!!!!
