Question protonix or something else?

Hi,I have had alot of problems this year and i guess this is another,Doc said i have G.E.R.D she thinks I have just read alot of these posts and i wonder if alot of my problems are do to this?But any way my ??? is I dont have prescription coverage so she gave me 2 weeks worth of protonix and a prescription for more well i am about to run out,should i ask for something else like nexium is that stronger and better?
The reason i ask is have not noticed much of a difference on protonix,unless it takes awhile to work.How long do they usually take(the meds)to work??

Protinix is the best you can get. When I was in the hospital that is what they gave me rather than the other GERD meds, but medicaid won't cover the protonix so I take 4 30mg, prevacids a day, so if you have a way without going broke to get the potonix it is the best, just give it time, or you could have another problem like your gallblader. Hope this helps
