Well I guess I know why I'm on Boniva now between the nexium & pred. Frustrating isn't it! I was aware that pump inhibitors could interfere with absorbtion of other meds. Thats why I take my vitamins, supplements and Fibro pain meds first thing in the morning...an hour before I take my nexium. Don't think I could live without my nexium. Purchased specific incident supplemental insurance through Aflac for Heart/Stroke coverage. Boy I'm I glad I did. At least my family is covered should anything happen with all this crap I take!
I agree with Stef too....totally irresponsible. I am not overweight either....why doesn't the author suggest cutting sweets and fats from the diet and reducing stress...why does he "assume" everyone with GERD is overweight! I hate sterotypes. Puts me on a soap box everytime! Just plain "ingnorance" in my book!
