My doctor has given me Aciphex (20 mg.) to take.  (That stuff is EXPENSI-I-I-VE!)
 
I believe I remember someone else on this board taking Aciphex but I can't find the post.  If you are taking it, I would be interested to know the dosage and how it worked, if at all.
 
Also, he gave me the generic form of Reglan.  It's called: Metoclopramide  Has this worked for anybody?  Did you take the generic or the real Reglan?
 
I sure hesitate to start TWO new meds at the same time because then it's hard to figure out which one might have caused side effects.
 
This is a great board.  Thanks in advance for any comments anyone might offer.

Hi Searchin,
I have taken Aciphex in the past, but currently taking Prevacid. DX w/GERD x 5 yrs. ago, and have been on Prolisec, /aciphex and now Prevacid. It seemed like most worked initially and for some time, but maybe system became too use to them. I think i'm going to try Prolisec again soon.


Good Luck!

Vanessa

Ever hear of women's intuition?   I never believe in it until it works with me! yeah
 
As my previous post states, I was prescribed the generic form of Reglan by my doctor.  For some reason, I kept getting this uncomfortable feeling about it even before I took it.  Therefore, I only took one pill a day when I could have taken three or four.
 
My uneasy feelings proved to be true because just yesterday, as I was surfing the Net, I came upon a law firm who represents clients who have had bad reactions to Reglan and/or its corresponding generic.
 
Of most concern was a side effect called "tardive dyskinesia".
 
You can research the law office website by typing in "Reglan, lawsuit" on any major search engine.
 
I bet there are doctors who do not know about these cases.  They can't know everything.  Therefore, it is incumbant upon we patients to do research and research and research to try to arm ourselves with knowledge in order that we may make the best choices for ourselves.
 
I will now choose to stop the Reglan generic that I started taking.  Other people will have to make their own decisions.  Of course, there is risk in anything in life but I think that, for me, I have read enough about the risks of this drug to make an informed decision.

Hi Searchin,
I started taking Prolisec again on yesterday. It seems like i'm getting a little more relief now. I tell you, i'm not happy about taking any of the drugs, but it looks like i'm just doomed without them.

I have heard the words Tardive Dyskinesia before and will research it symptoms.

Good luck w/your search!
