View Full Version : How to taper off of PPIs?

08-17-2011, 04:10 PM
I am 70 and PPIs have been the best treatment for GERD for me for what seems like ten years. Now, the acid frequently breaks through. I have recently been trying Gaviscon as a foam blocker, and slippery elm to coat the throat and esophagus. I would like to get off of the PPIs because they may be triggering my migraine headaches. From this Health Board, I suspect that headaches may also be a side effect of withdrawing from the PPIs. Any thoughts will be appreciated!!
