I'd like to share how I am able to stop taking my PPI. The key is to discover the triggers for GERD and eliminate them one by one. I had tried several times stopping Nexium / Parient without success. The final attempt was a success. I failed the failed attempts because I unknowingly hit my trigger which is stress and it caused the rebound reflux.
Quiting cold turkey after dosage reduction is best if you are able to find your triggers and have taken a proper diet and some supplements for some time.
I did double doses -> single dose -> antacid only.
20mg single dose -> 10mg single dose doesn't work for me. It somehow triggered massive reflux.
So I opted for 20mg single dose -> antacid only.
Some research papers claimed that single dose -> H2 Blocker -> antacid is a good way too.
