PPI's and side effects

I have been put on PPI's 6 weeks ago as a medication for an ulcer. I have not had an acid reflux when I started but seamed to develop one as the time went one.

Is there anyone else with the same side effect, where PPI's actually made you acid reflux worse?

What PPI have you been put on, perhaps you could try a different one, there are quite a few.
I have just been put on NEXIUM for H.Pylori and Ulcer symptoms, no Antibiotics until I see my GI Dr at the hospital in Sept.
This is my second Ulcer (suspect), The first time I took Nexium for just two weeks along with the Antibiotics.
I don't know yet how I will get on with them, I cant feel any worse than I do at the moment. Solofelix.

I have been on Dexilant, AciPhex and Nexium. Had side effects on all. I stopped all yesterday and am trying more natural route.

This journey has been really rough as you can imagine.

Did you ever try any natural remedies?

I have tried Aloe-Vera Juice and Grapefruit Seed Extract.
They did Nothing for me.
