anyone had success with H2 blockers vrs PPI..........im just not getting very far with my LPR, PPI has helped by taking away the cough and constant flem but i still heaps of other stuff going on, im takin galviscon before bed which helps.......i have been on PPIx2 for around 5 months...........im thinking about trying zantac or something like four times a day with the galviscon and stop PPI ........anyone had success with zantac etc for LPR...dosnt it do the same thing? ie stop acid production? im sure that i must be refluxing pepsin/bile as well as acid?

Beemer,

I am sorry , I don't know the answer off the top of my head but your  GI Doc would

probably be able to help you.

Other wise do a comparison of the 2 meds and how they work. Google:

Pharmacodynamic Aspects of Hz-Blockers versus proton Pump Inhibitors

 

Perhaps a member will know the answer.

Take care and hope you find the answer.
