Not me, but I have definitely heard of people who said the PPI's made no difference at all and were way too pricey.

My PPI stopped heartburn but did not relieve most of my GERD symptoms.

PPis help about 50% of the time.  But they are not a cure, just a cover up of the problem.  I really really hate takign meds everyday.  They are so expensive and I dont see how someone who has a slow emptying stomach would benefit from cutting off acid even more, that just doesnt make sense to me.
