Take PPI before dinner for nighttime reflux
I've been having some really good success with my nighttime reflux. I suffer from reflux almost always when I sleep, I tried everything, nothing really helped. I was taking 20 mg of prescription prilosec before sleeping but it wasn't working. Then I read that it needs to be activated by food and it takes hours before it really starts working. So now I take it around 5:30 right before dinner, go to sleep around 11 and I've been having nights where I sleep straight through, very rarely waking up unable to breath. Though it does seem to start wearing off before I wake up because around 3AM I'm still fine but by 6 or 7 AM I have that bad reflux taste in mouth, but at least I'm not waking up unable to breath, thats a horrible feeling.
