I have been on Protonix for 3 years and read it is not good to just stop taking this drug. What is the safest way to get off of Protonix after this length of time?
When you stop you'll get what is called acid rebound about a week after. In layman terms your opening the flood gate on a dam that's been closed for three years . My advice is to take an h2 blocker ( Zantac, Pepcid, axid )twice a day for a month then back off slowly. Good luck
