Re: Getting off PPI's and acid rebound

Good morning,

Such great information on here. It is giving me the strength to continue with this because let me tell you, it would be easier to run back to the Nexium.

Rose, I am so glad to hear that things are settling down for you. I did end up taking a few tums late yesterday afternoon but taking the Zantac on an empty stomach seemed to be more effective in that I made it to late in the day before I had any discomfort. Yes I still had some heartburn but I am still less than a month off the Nexium.

I have a couple of questions also Rose. Do you know if there is a difference between the OTC Zantac and the prescription? Have you noticed or read any long term side effects of Zantac? Does your Doctor know you are making this transition and at what point would you have another clinical test to see how you are doing?

I am experiencing headaches but again I don't know if it is the Zantac or just my body adjusting.

Thanks again for all the useful information.
