I am a 34 yr old male who has a hard time making those lifestyle changes. I have been suffering for yrs and never can commit to taking my PPI daily. My doctor said that their was a new med that works for everyday use and whenever I need it! He said that the others dont work this way but that Zegerid was an immediate release ppi which works faster than whats has been out there. I have been on Zegerid 40 mg and you can actually feel the pain go away withen 10-20 minutes of this stuff. Plus you can take it anytime which was an issue for me as well. I take before I go to bed and I have been sleeping great! Try it out.

Thanks for the information, but when I followed up with my physician he stated the following:
1) Zegerid is equivalent to ranitidine or zantac based upon its label.
2) It was more expensive (4*) than generic omeprazole, a drug equally effective.
3) My health plan had it as the highest copay.
4) Because I am on a sodium reduced diet I need to stay away from the product.
5) The product requires me to mix it with water.
Given the above, particularly the need to mix it with water and the price,  I think I'll stay with Nexium.  Thanks again anyway.

I found the 40mg seems to work faster and better at night than the others.  Mixing it with a little bit of water isn't that big of a deal, I was advised a pill will be available later this year.  Taking it before bed time without having to eat is a HUGE benefit.  Sleeping through the night is an even bigger benefit especially with the hectic the life I lead.  Give it a try with a few free samples and Good luck. yeah
