    Tinkerbell,
    that sounds like classic LPR to me...
    your Gastro doctor will probably put you on PPI's x2 per day, and you will go from there.
    I hope you feel better. it's the worse thing in the world to combat.

    Hi,

    Yea the gastro doctor put me on 2 ppis a day. I was taking 40 nexium twice a day, then protonix twice a day and now reglan 4x a day with prevacid twice a day. Nothing is working. The bad breath is the worst part...i am so depressed. Backslide did you have this as well?

    tinkerbell-
    I haven't been on all the meds you've tried, i gave up after trying just two and some over the counter, just too many side effects and they only helped a little. I have the all the symptoms of Lpr, and GI doctor confirms it, but wants to just give meds..
    Here's what I've been taking, it helps with the breath a lot. Liquid clorophyll. just look it up and read about it. doesn't taste bad at all, u put it in water or whatever you can drink.
    good luck. this is a nasty thing to live with but try to get through one day at a time. depression can take it's toll i know understand it all fully.
    keep trying things though and maybe some things will help.
