I have been dx with Gerd for 10 years. As a matter of fact I just had my second endoscopy today. The erosion in the esophagus has healed, but the hiatal hernia is a little bigger. I started out on Zantac, went to prilosec, then to nexium and finally to aciphex. the aciphex was the best for me. recently, my drug plan said they weren't going to pay for the aciphex and convinced my Dr. to ok the nexium. I try, but as you can see the hour, I got an hour and 45 minutes of sleep before the reflux was choking me.
Has anyone else run into this problem? Are there any newer drugs that are more inexpensive out there?
Thank you for your feedback.
