"Zegerid is the only OTC that helps relieve the incredible pain I experience - within 15 minutes! My life would be a living nightmare without Zegerid. Nexium takes way too long to then even barely reduce the pain. I've been taking Zegerid almost daily for around 9 years. When I wait too long, the pain can be best described as Chuckie the horror doll sitting on my head and stabbing daggers down my throat and in my ears. Not fun. Thank you Zegerid, for being fast acting and highly effective!"

"I have used all and just about every heartburn medicine OTC and prescription. Zegerid is by far the best product I have ever used. I recommend it to all it is a little pricey but is well worth the money."

"This is the only medication that stopped my GERD. After the 14 day treatment, the first day I did not take it, my GERD returned in full force. I wish it would have had a longer effect. Have given up on my doctor finding a solution, so will have to suffer for the next four months until I can repeat the Zegerid."

"This medication works as well as Prilosec but the super fat pill makes swallowing very difficult, which is why I quit using it and why I have it a low rating. Most people with GERD suffer from an inflamed esophagus and the creators of this pill should have taken that into account. I went back to Prilosec after a week of painfully trying to swallow this pill."

"It worked really fast, and as soon as the 14 day treatment was over the symptoms came back immediately despite changing my diet, exercise, etc. "
