A 28-year-old male asked about a 67-year-old female:
Are there any other medications normally prescribed with ppis for gerd? can you just take the ppi only?

YES: H-2 BLOCKERS EG: PEPCID AC (OTC)
and CARAFATE (sucralfate)....ask your Pharmacist for examples!
Hope these two suggestions help!
BTW MANY people find they need no more than PPI's!
