On Sept. 16th, I'm going to have a PH monitoring test, and a manometry test. Before one of those tests, I have to stop taking PPI's for 72 hours, you can imagine how thrilled I am about that I know that if I stop those pills cold turkey, (Nexium 40 mg x 2 daily), I'm going to have terrible rebound effect so I'm planning on reducing the Nexium until the day I have to stop altogether before the test.
I'm wondering if anyone else has done this in preparation for the test, and if so, how did you do it. Right now I'm trying to eliminate one every other day until I'm down to one pill a day, and then one pill every other day after that. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated. I have the feeling I should have started this sooner though.
