I don't usually post on this forum, but I would agree with mud. I have problems with acid reflux at times. I was just diagnosed with Lyme Disease in January and a year of weird symptoms. My doctor started me on Dexilant along with my ABX because I was afraid the ABX would cause me to have a flair. Within two weeks of starting, I had pretty bad acid reflux symptoms. This persisted for a couple of months when I finally thought that maybe the Dexilant was TOO MUCH medicine for me. I stopped taking it and switched to Zantac 150..one in the morning. Felt almost immediate relief from the "food being stuck" feeling. Spent about two weeks taking Zantac and then stopped on Saturday and so far, so good.
I believe that I have low stomach acid rather than high stomach acid. Low stomach acid can cause the same symptoms that a person with high stomach acid can. I'm going to speak to my gastro doc about this next time I see him.
I wanted to tell you about a product that I've been using for quite a while now. You can get it online...it's not cheap, but I think it works great for my tummy. It's called GI-Revive made by designs for health. It has all the good stuff for your tummy in it including Aloe Vera, slippery elm, marshmallow and other stuff. It's a powder form and I take 1 tspn in the morning and 1 at night mixed with water. It's gluten and dairy free too.
