On 40mg pantoprazole and 150mg Zantac. Doc has me on this for 3 months for gerd. Is it normal to be on this long. Tired of taking pills?

Many patients are not able to go off medicines completely. The goal would then be to get down to the least amount of medicines which controls you symptoms well. Anti-reflux precautions help.

Suffering from long term acidity & Food/Liquid reflux to food pipe. Taking Zantac. Now, Dr gave me Pantoprazole 40 mg. It sorted the acidity & reflux somehow but every evening, I'm feeling bit nauseous. No vomiting or pain but an urge of wet burping.?
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! ...Read more
My 14 year old just started pantoprazole 40 mg. Yesterday. He's been having trouble swallowing and sore throat. Zantac (ranitidine) no good. How long until better?
PPI medications: Pantoprazole and other meds like it are very good at calming the symptoms of acid reflux, and work much better than Zantac, (ranitidine) Pepcid, etc. Symptom relief usually occurs in 3-4 days. Your son's difficulty swallowing and sore throat may be unrelated to his acid reflux symptoms. You should contact his doctor about it as may have a throat infection. ...Read more

Options: You are on a pretty good reflux regimen right now.

Make sure your gastroenterologist knows that the above isn't doing the job. They can make some changes before you have to consider the extreme of surgery. ...Read more
