I am 33 weeks pregnant with severe heartburn, my OB prescribed 20mg of Protonix because its the only thing that used to work. Its a lower dose than what I used to take. I'm on day 4, how long should I wait until asking the doc to give me a higher dose? It is so unbearable that I can only eat applesauce with no problem :(
You can go ahead and let your OB know that it still isnt providing relief. It may just be the baby crowding the stomach that is the problem. Have you felt any relief at all? Have you tried eating slowly small amounts of food several times a day? You may ask him(or her) if you can drink something like Boost or Ensure so that you get some nutrition on board for your little one as this may be a problem only relieved by delivery.
