Welcome to Healing Well!
PPI dosage and strengths vary from drug to drug, so 40mg Protonix doesn't mean you'd take 40mg Dexilant. They all have unique characteristics and recommended doses.
Good luck! Hope you're feeling better soon.
Words of wisdom by Eckhart Tolle:
"Whatever you fight, you strengthen, and what you resist, persists.”
“Worry pretends to be necessary but serves no useful purpose”
“Accept - then act. Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Always work with it, not against it.”
