I weaned myself off PPI's about a month ago.  The problem is that I still have such bad burning in my stomach all the time.  I use Pepcid 40mg 2X a day, but I just can't seem to beat this problem.  Any suggestions?

Ginger seems to have some healing qualities so you  might try adding ginger to some of your food and beverages. Fresh ginger is available in the grocery stores, and this can be ground up and added to meals. Some meals call for this in the recipe, but it can be added to other dishes. Ginger can also be added to tea.

You may still be exoperiencing rebound, so don't give up hope. I take a pepto bismol tab before bed for my stomach, and 2 or 3 tums as needed, on top of 150 Mg zantec twice daily. Lifestyle changes are also important including careful eating.
