Next step.: The next step would generally be to double your dose or switch to a different PPI and consider adding an H2 blocker such as ranitidine at night. Others would argue that you should have a 24 hour pH probe. This is a test where a wire is inserted into your esophagus to measure acidity at various points in the esophagus.
