Thanks for the reply, that makes a lot of sense. It seems odd when you just say that something with the same chemical composition could possible be different, but that's the case...What's strange is that I'm starting to wonder if the Prilosec I'm taking has (and has been having) a similar effect. The truth of the matter is that I never had the severe burning and piercing pain that I suffer through now before I started with the Prilosec (also had similar experience when I tried Prevacid). It was still horrible, but not as bad/painful - More like the whole burping to clear out reflux, slight regurgitation, (not as bad) chest discomfort, etc.
Sometimes in the morning I feel great, and then I take a Prilosec, and I get a pain that coincides with taking that med. This doesn't always happen, but it does a lot of times. With that said, when I have tried to stop, I still suffer through rebound issues.
