Also have reflux from both the esophogus and hiatal hernia. Has been about 3 years and is continuing to get worse. Spasms cause my throat to close and is nick named "nutcracker disease."

This has been a drug recommened instead of surgery to try first. I need to know the pros and cons on this medicine. Especially for my condition.Have tried every other stomach med. with no help from any other meds, other than pain meds. But this can not be a way of life on pain meds. I do not want to take mood altering drugs.
