Clearly I screwed up today. I ate whole wheat penne, with a little chicken breast, a tablespoon of olive oil and sea salt.

Was it the oil? The salt? or did i just eat too much.

I am refluxing like crazy! OH and i'm being weaned off Prilosec and today was the first day I didn't have any. I am taking four zantac a day now.

Any guidance would be appreciated. I've been feeling so good until about an hour ago, i have burning reflux all the way into my nose!

That sounds reasonable, but for some people it doesn't matter what you eat. I could eat absolutely nothing all day and have severe reflux

It could be the whole wheat pasta. Wheat contains gluten which is a fatty protein that can bother some people with GERD. Try gluten free brown rice pasta, it tastes pretty much the same
GERD Moderator; Diagnosed GERD, no other medical conditions (this one is enough)

You suddenly went off a ppi, replacing it with an h2 blocker. You are experiencing rebound from being on a ppi. You should taper off the ppi. Your rebound has nothing to do with what you ate.

Thanks. Sunbeam I have been thinking you are right because this morning I are a breakfast I know doesn't bother me and I still reflexes like crazy. I am being weaned but should I have gone from 40 to 30 to 20 of Prilosec instead of cold turkey with the Zantac? I am doing what dr. Told me to do. Does Zantac take a while to work? Because it doesn't seem to do anything?

What a hard day I am having again. Worse than ever. How long does it take for the rebound to stop?

A lot of doctors don't mention rebound to their patients, maybe they don't know about it? I went from 40 to 20 to 10 Mg prilosec I think spread over 3 weeks, then zantec 150. I still had severe rebound for a week or two. I would buy some OTC prilosec to use to taper, you will probably be more comfortable.

The doctors haven't offered me much for my gerd, just ppis, different ppis, more ppis. They don't work that well for me. I've done all the standard lifestyle changes plus the Koufman diet. Probably some people think I am a surgical candidate, but now i think my new diet, which addresses my digestive issue, holds great promise. I have been sleeping better, and feel better in general. The Kaufman diet made me afraid to eat enough fat, and I have been malnourished.

Here is article. Rebound lasts 8 to 26 weeks per this study .
Wish you the best and hope you feel better soon.

That would be going from ppi to nothing. Going to an h2 blocker should have shorter rebound, I'm thinking.

Sunbeam48. I've been told that PPI works on the proton pumps whereas H2, are histamine blockers. Two separate entities. Yes they both will help acid but two different ways. It is my belief that rebound still occurs. The doc told me that if you are ONLY taking H2 then you can have limited rebound from their discontinuation but not as long as PPI . What can one do . Just titrate down very very slowly. Yes the docs don't always discuss the rebound with us patients.

Pat, thanks. Yes, that's what I was trying to say, not very clearly I guess. Thank you for the clarification. Yes, I have experienced the rebound, going from PPI to H2 blocker. I mentioned that previously on this thread.
