Which Proton Pump Inhibitors?

4 posts in this topic

Hi- I am waiting for my endoscopy and PH tests, am taking double my usual dose of Prevacid (lansoprazole)- 120mg daily and still have an acid taste in my mouth - no burn in my esophagus.

 

Has anybody had this symptom, and what do you think of the other PPIs? - Prilosec (omeprazole) and Nexium (esomeprazole) do not work for me. I do the diet thing, elevated bed, etc. Thanks!

I took Protonix (pantoprazole) at twice the normal dosage. It worked fairly well in the beginning but LES (lower esophageal sphincter) must have gotten wise to what I was doing and gave me more grief. :lol:

Hi Fragiledancer,

 

I was diagnosed with diffuse systemic scleroderma in 1998 and my rheumatologist prescribed Prilosec once a day which I was continually having problems with indigestion. Then she increased it to twice a day,. It worked for a short period of time then lost its effectiveness. I was on it for six months, switched to Nexium once a day, then increased it twice a day and to this day, have not had any issues, except the annoying and tiresome ongoing cough. :(

 

Best wishes on your results of your endoscopy and PH tests.

 

Take care :)

Hello Fragiledancer

 

I am on omeprazole twice a day and don't really have any symptoms, mind you reflux has never been a real issue for me. :P

 

Take care.
