1. Do most of you feel that the more acid reducer you are prescribed/told to take by docs the more you need?
(I've made all changes, am not overweight, and have noticed in the past few months that the more acid reducer I take, the more and more I need--this is startling to me. I was fine with 1 zantac at a point--now I need 2 pepcid max, tums, rolaids, carafate, herbal concoction--and the latter doesn't seem to work anymore. I was dxd with "too much acid" in my stomach, GERD, and mild gastritis.)
2. Is there any medical truth (study) that shows the more acid reducer you take, then the more stomach acid your body creates? (I've heard this here and there but am not sure whether this has scientifically been proven. If so, it makes me think that it's entirely counterintuitive and nonsensical to prescribe acid reducers)
2. Anyone try coming off the medications for a week or so to see if their body heels itself in time? Please share.
