Endless burping, just after food & when hungry. No gall bladder. Acid relux? I take prevacid (lansoprazole) 15mg qd. Increase?
Probably. It would be best to increase the Prevacid (lansoprazole) to 30 mg daily for a couple of weeks and if that is no help then to 30 mg twice daily. If that does not work then you should be seen. Many people with repeated burping have a problem with swallowing air called aerophagia but you should be seen to be sure it is nothing other than that.
Gall bladder removed in july, found I have to take digestive enzymes (heath store) or I regurgitate food. Take prevacid (lansoprazole) 15mg for poss. Reflux. Normal?
Different problems. Gallbladder disease tends to be distinct from gastritis or gerd with regurgitation. A ppi drug like Prevacid (lansoprazole) should be used short-term only if possible. I would consider a gerd workup, to include upper endoscopy (egd), and then perhaps other studies to evaluate your symptoms of regurgitation, that may be resolved with medical or surgical therapy.
