Re: Can I take AC Vinegar while on a PPI?
You might not want to take the AC vinegar and PPI's at the same time. Be stragic about your timing.
How are you propping yourself up when you sleep? If you are using pillows, you could be making things worse. Propping on pillows can acually cause some squishing of your stomach area. A nice wedge pillow designed for sleeping or actually propping up your bed headboard 4-6 inches is better for acid reflux. Personally, I've slept with by bed on an incline for years to let gravity help.
Try sleeping on your left side as well.
When I started new PPI's, my GI doc would tell me to give it at least a month to see if it was going to make any difference. Two weeks may not be long enough to verify long term effectiveness.
