anyone else experience this

Hi everybody, just wondering if anyone else has had this experience. i have been on nexium 40mg once a day for 4 months now. for 2 months out of the 4 i felt pretty good, minimal cough, my sinuses were great, my lump in my throat sensation was decreasing, i even had about 10 days when i did not even notice it at all. well in the last week, my sinuses are bad again, i have an increase in the cough and the lump feeling is back in the throat but not as bad. i have to clear my throat more and have alot more mucous. i was hoping that after 4 months this would subside. has anyone else gone thru this. i thought the nexium was working well. i am wondering if the nexium is going to do anything more for me or do i need to switch to something else. can anyone help????? i have a doc's appointment next week. it gets very frustrating and worrisome. thanks

Re: anyone else experience this

Sounds like you have LPR my friend, and LPR requires 2x daily dosing with Nexium (or other anti reflux med). 1 dose is 40 mg, 2 doses is 2 pills - or 80 mg. 40 mg is not going to cut it, unless you want to stay sick (I've been there.). Check out this article - it's the best article ever written about LPR and it's treatment (in my layperson opinion) and this article was given to me by my doctor Eugenia Vining at Yale.
