To bad a lot of us did not have this info before our Drs. started us on PPIs mad I still think they have an important role in people that benefit from them.  I seem to be one.

Interesting that they said Prilosec was just as effective as Nexium. That wasn't the case for me. Prilosec seemed to do nothing, so I stopped taking it, then Nexium enabled me to slowly heal. I have now (after 7 months on Nexium) backed down to 40 mg Prilosec with no ill effects.
