... She had stopped responding to Prilosec and Prevacid so Nexium was the next choice. ... (41 replies)
... I have tried practically all of the meds: Zantac, Prevacid, Nexium, etc. etc. Personally the one I have found the best is Ranitidine 150 mg (one tab per day). Zantac 75 is exactly the same as Ranitidine, only 1/2 the strength. Ranitidine puts out the "fire" or heartburn better than the PPI's -- my observation. (I found Nexium better than Prevacid/Prilosec, as far... (41 replies)
... My doctor said they are all very similar, but slightly different, and all good. He said whatever works for you is the best. None work for me. Right now I'm on Prevacid 30 mg twice a day, just because my doctor didn't want me off ppis. ... (41 replies)

... For me I take 30mg of Prevacid twice a day. I take up to 300 mg of Zantac up to twice a day as needed. I also take reglan as needed. ... (41 replies)

... Was on zantac 150 2 x a day for bout 20 yrs,had a second child and for some reason it stopped working.Doc then put me on prevacid 2 x a day worked like a charm.Take care. ... (41 replies)
... Nexium is very similar chemically to Prilosec. Prevacid is also available over the counter. ... (4 replies)
... From what I understand, nexium is basically the same thing as Prilosec. The drug company's patent expired on Prilosec, so they needed a new cash cow, therefore Nexium was created. No, I am not a conspiracy nut, or anti-drug company. I have heard this from pharmacists and medical professionals. (41 replies)
... Dan, THank you so much for the information. I am so glad you are finding releif - I hope you continue to feel better daily. Can you please tell me what a typical day's menu is like for you? I too have been contemplating going the natural route (I take Prevacid and Carafate daily and it is not helping - in fact lately it seems my acid is worse for a few hours AFTER... (4 replies)
... I had major fatigue! Oh my gosh, I slept all the time. I also had terrible headaches, and was getting really depressed. My dose was cut in half and then I went off it completely. It's a relief! It didn't help much anyways because of the weird timing required. Anyways, I typically use Phenergen or Compazine to get me through bad patches, and it does okay. Have you... (41 replies)
... Well I only take it as needed. And it helps me keep stuff done. Rather than get the heartburn on the meds, I get mostly the reflux. On my 24 hour probe the dr. said that my stomach was incredibly acidic (60% more than it should be and that was already on 30mg on prevacid in the morning) and that when I registered the GERD activity it was the bile comming back up. Reglan... (41 replies)
... Zantac isn't a PPI, it's an H2 blocker. That is why it "puts out the fire faster." Because it's meant to work quickly. PPIs take up to a week to work, but generally work better. (41 replies)
... Losec is Nexium, I believe. It's omperazole. Prevacid is lansoprazole. ... (41 replies)
... ================== hi Tex, I have read in many many places, folks break pills in half. If inner contents tend to spill, use mashed slice of bread, like rubber sheet for texture, as a wrapper. But do it without touching it at all, since fingers carry germs. (41 replies)

... except Zantac and doctors don't generally prescibe that hear, it's OTC. ... (41 replies)
... From what i've heard, there is no best one for everyone, each formulation is a little different and each person responds differently to the meds. I tried them all and protonix was the only one that actually worked for me. \ I would recommend asking your doc for samples before you fill a scrip. I filled a scrip for prilosec, nexium and one other before i got to protonix,... (41 replies)

... You really should have a scope done. I was like you, terrofied of it. I put it off for 10 years and have done nothing but suffer. I finally did it last Friday and I can tell you it' not bad at all. They put me to sleep and I was done in 10 minutes... (4 replies)
