Acid Reflux / GERD Message Board

Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index

My doctor recently "prescribed" apple cider vinegar therapy to me for my acid reflux, as I've been on Prevacid for 9 years and have decided that I need to get off of it, in light of the recent news that long term PPI use can contribute to hip and jaw fractures.

I'm to take 1-2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar before each meal each day. She told me I could mix it with water if I wanted but that most people just "shoot it" so that's what I do. I just take 1 tsp straight. It's also acceptable to get my dose as salad dressing.

I started taking ACV about 2 weeks ago. I stopped taking Prevacid 3 days ago. So far I don't have any heartburn and I've only refluxed once. I must admit I haven't been entirely consistent with taking ACV before every meal and I need to try harder to give it a fair shot, but so far I'm pleased with the results and I really want to get off of Prevacid entirely- both for my health, and for my wallet. My insurance does not cover Prevacid (acid reflux was a pre-existing condition that I had before I got this insurance) and Rx Prevacid costs me over $100 a month.

The key thing is to ensure you are getting raw, unfiltered ACV with "the mother" in it. If it's been pasteurized, it won't work.
