right now I just have the samples from my doctor. They are 40mg and I only take them 1x a day before bed. you're right about the LRP. It's more likely that then the reflux although I've had thyroid issues which can cause acid reflux so who knows. I just know that I took the Protonix for the first time one night (kinda late...about 9pm ish)
and the next day I woke up without the lump feeling and have not had it back since. I was also having a bit of trouble swallowing, actually feeling like things were getting stuck and very slow going down but I just went for an Endoscopy and it was completely clear. About 3 days after I started the Protonix even that went away.
