I can't take Nexium either because of killer headaches. Aciphex works pretty well for me.. for the moment. Hope this helps.

I was on Nexium for at least two years ... first 5 months was okay ... suddenly headaches started to appear and got sooo bad towards the end that I had to stop taking ANY kind of acid reducers.

I got myself an alternative doctor here in town (not cheap, but was worth it) ... she put me on a brand new product called: remacid. My ND recommended that I start off the 1st week by taking 4 tablets, after every meal and 2 before going to sleep. 2nd week 3 tablets and 2 before going to sleep so on and so forth ...

Whala ... after the fourth week I only took it on an as needed basis ... It has been 8 months and I'm heartburn FREE ... But, I still take two before going to sleep ... just to make sure I sleep thru the night.

All the PPIs generally work the same for me - meaning, they don't really work. I'm on Kapidex now but don't know if all this switching around is making matters worse. Maybe I should only stick to 1 drug for months at a time?

Does anyone know if Kapidex is the new version of Nexium, Aciphex, or Prevacid? I keep hearing different things. Is it supposed to be the best PPI out there right now or does that still go to Nexium?

By the way, never got headaches on Nexium.

Would also appreciate recommendations though...
