Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index

Hi there,

I have been on double the dose of Prilosec (40 mgx2 daily versus 20 mgx2 daily) for 3 weeks, due to a sudden severity in my GERD symptoms (pain in esophagus, unable to eat or sleep for days despite diet change, raising head of bed, etc). I feel better (not totally normal but better) and would really like to wean myself back down to the 20x2 at the 1 month mark ( or at least to 30/day, anything less than this current dose), and am wondering the best way to go about this. I would like to go completely off at some point, but baby steps, as I do get terrible rebound, even when I do it very slowly. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Also, do you think the rebound will be very bad considering I have only been on this higher dose for a month or so? I am currently taking digestive enzymes and a probiotic , and considering trying DGL licorice and Gaviscon Advance in my endeavor to wean down. Thank you for any thoughts, it's so great to have this forum, this condition is so confusing, frustrating, and debilitating, and conventional doctors seem to just have zero clue.
