LPR on protonix (pantoprazole): Wit hreflux avoid soda, caffeine, chocholate , alcohol smoking energy drinks, spicy/ fatty food. But 1 burger a week should be ok not too spicy. Also elevating head of bed with pillow under mattress may helps as it is hard to reflux going against gravity( mouth higher up then stomach ) F/U w/ doc
