Hello,
I am in the process of trying another new med for these conditions. I have tried, OTC Prilosec 20mg once daily....protonix 40mg daily....prevacid 15mg daily and Dexilant 60mg daily...of course not all at one time.,..nothing seems to give me extended relief so my GIdr keeps suggesting these changes...after about 7-10 days of trying these I give up and try another...Has anyone experienced continual relief from any of the above ones that I have tried...the adjustment days from one to the other seem to give me such anxiety attacks...each one with their own set of not pleasant symptoms to add with the daily GERD/Relfux issues...Four days ago, I tried Nexium 40mg...having bad abd cramps and the dry taste along with a cough...just wondering how long of an adjustment this one will need....Has anyone had such with any of the mentioned meds that I have tried. I am just about ready to go back to Prilosec and taking Pepcid for the breakthru heartburn..I have limited my diet and lost over 35lbs but this disease is kicking my butt... any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I was told by my GI Dr that PPIs should be given up to 8 wks to show any benefit.
With 40 mg of NEXIUM per day I found releif in 10 days.
Not everyone finds the same. Have you tried as an addition, taking (Manuuka-Honey 15+) also Aloe Vera Juice, they may help.
Solofelix.
I have heard about the honey...have not tried it. Have you? As for the Nexium I have no insurance coverage...for this condition...it was considered a pre-existing condition so they wrote it out of my plan...just my luck. Anyway, I am about ready to go back to Prilosec...it helped as good as any of the others I have tried...Protonix, dexilant, etc. I also have gastritis along with the hernia and GERD I am a real prize in the gastro dept! Just want to find something to work and work well. Thanks for the response.
