... the cost difference. What do you think?
If cost is an issue... and you are not getting relief, or don't like the idea of using these types of drugs ... I am having good success and been able to reduce my dosage in half by taking a drug called "baclofen". It is a muscle relaxant, but seems to help the muscle at the bottom of the esophagus where it meets the stomach. to keep the acid from creeping up.
The drug is older and therefore cheaper. It does cause some drowsiness, especially at higher doses, so I mostly take it at night. I am taking 1/2 tablet (5mg) about 4 pm and another 1/2 to 1 tablet around 9 pm with good results.
