I experience negative side effects to omeprazole (Prisolec, Zegerid) and rabeprazole (Aciphex). I am slowly going off of the rabeprazole and thus the side effects are slowly improving. But I have moderately severe gastritis (diagnosed with gastroscopy) and experience almost constant heartburn and so I think I need to be on some kind of medication. However I am unwilling to take any Prazole drug. Does anyone know of medications not in this class that would help? (The side effects I experience are insomnia, burning/itching skin, and irregular bleeding/ovulation. The burning skin sensation is the worst.) Thanks!
Ask your doctor to put you on nizatidine (axid) which is a h2 blocker similar to Zantac but also work as a Prokinetic (help empty your stomach faster) . Not common so you'll have to ask but I've been taking it for years and it works great for me
