Ive got a 13 year old who was given this medication by a consultant. He has been suffering with really bad wind for 5 weeks and nightly stomach cramps. He has been taking one a day for 5 days with no change. He has been told to take it for 6 weeks. How long should i give if they are not working??? Any ideas please
If he is being treated for an ulcer, it can take a few weeks to see the effects. I suspect that is what the dr is treating for, I've had both those symptoms when I had ulcers.
if it is for acid it should work in a couple days. i tried it and had bad stomach .(i h, ave acid reflux and sm amount of barrets esophegous.)GASTRO DR SENT ME FOR SEVERAL TESTS AND SAID I AM ALLERGIC TO IT.i had been taking protonix for 10 yrs and ins. stopped covering.dr sent form to ins .i got back on protonix and pain got better.if pain persists,i would keep bugging dr.
