I have had some problems with reflux and heartburn off and on for nearly a year. I'm a 66 year old female. I took Prilosec for a few months and was sicker than ever, so I weaned off it. so I have the Zantac 150 which I can take twice a day when needed. I feel crazy, but sometimes it makes my heartburn worse! anyone else have this problem? I have totally given up on doctors.
Hi. I'm a 61 yr old female and suffers with GERD and hiatal hernia for yrs. Also I don't have a gallbladder. I was scoped yrs ago. Started out with tagamet, then Zantac and was on Nexium for yrs. There were probably a couple of different meds around Tagamet. During the yrs with Nexium I've had flareups and would take 2 Nexiums a day. Last fall Nexium started to fail me. But a lot of stress in my life. My primary Dr thought I should talk to someone at a health food store. They suggested digestive enzymes. It worked for awhile. Then symptoms came back. Dr suggested Protonix. I tried it a couple of days and had side effects. Went to Dr again and she of course wants me to consider hiatal hernia surgery. But I read that sometimes it doesn't work. She said she never heard of that. Plus I'm scared. My husband and i thought to try Zantac again. She said to try. I also read chiropractors can help. Again dr didn't think so. I'm at wit's end too. I want to be normal.again.
