Re: hiatus hernia/barretts and ppi's
I was prescribed nexium after treatment for Ulcers and H.Pylori.
I have a Hiatal-Hernia and IBS and found PPIs seem to make my stomach feel worse so cut down on the dose and finally left them of altogether.
Got myself on a healthy diet and found most of my symptoms are much better. What suits one person may not suit another so I would suggest you try leaving PPIs off for awhile and replace with something like Gaviscon. If you are unsure then check with your Dr, I kept my Dr informed of what I was doing and she advised me accordingly,
