Where did you read this? Do you happen to have a link?
I've often wondered about
that. It seems like when I have a "flare up" and I'm taking my normal PPI along with maalox or rolaids or whatever I have at the time, I always have the feeling I should just stick it out because perhaps I am neutralizing too much acid. I mean you have to digest your food, right? Maybe when I take all the extra stuff it prolongs the flare up? But it sure is hard not to take them, especially at night when all you want to do is sleep.
