For those trying to get off PPI's
I have been on nexium for many years and wanted to get off due to the long term health risks. I wanted to share with you a cheap and effective alternative to weaning yourself off. As you know if you go cold turkey than the acid reflux is tens times worse. I have been alternating for several weeks taking DGL (3) times a day every; other day, which is a chewable tablet. After about 3 or so weeks I was able to go every two days on DGL and now Its almost 4 or more days I have been off nexium without those severe side effects. Not only is DGL a good alternative but it coats the lining of your esophagus and aids in healing. I rarely have acid reflux. However, you still have to watch what you eat.
Best of luck.
