Has anyone tried this?
I had an endoscopy last week and dr. dx'd me with GERD and H. Hernia.
She gave me samples of the AcipHex. The first day was okay then after that I started getting a dull headache then after 6 days progressed to the headache from H-E double toothpicks that would not respond to any pain meds. I started becoming weak, feeling flu-like and started having cramps in my feet of all places!
Sunday I decided that was enough and Monday the headache was gone, though yesterday I was still so weak and had profound fatigue..today I feel much better...thank God.
The only "good" thing from that med was the relief from the heartburn and it seemed to be helping my chronic constipation.
I'm wondering if there are any other PPI's that don't have those kind of side effects or any other med beside the over the counter type, such as Tagamet and the like?
Thanks in advance.
