Queezy from ppi: Hi GcZ648, nausea is a known but uncommon side effect of pantoprazole. It may go away with continued use. Some things that will help with your reflux are avoiding fatty, spicy, or acidic foods. Avoiding chicolate and coffee are helpful as well. Nighttime symptoms can be helped by not eating within 4 hours of bedtime. Exercise and weight loss have proven to improve symptoms as well.

Burping: The meds that you mentioned both tell the cells lining the walls of your stomach to reduce the AMOUNT of acid they produce. Stomach acid can still move up the esophagus. You can try raising the head end of yr bed. A more definitive solution would be to have surgery (a Nissan Fundoplication). Check out on www.mayoclinic.com or www.johnshopkins.com. Good luck!
