Four months ago, I was prescribed pantoprazole, but I didn't take it as it should have been. My doctor had said it was okay to take as needed, which I did. I would take it once or twice a week max, but it didn't help with the occasional heartburn (obviously since I now understand it must be taken daily) so I stopped taking it after three months.
Since then (this past month), my occasional heartburn has become constant burning in the chest, throat and nose. Is it worth trying pantoprazole again or will it not work because I have taken it before and stopped? I know with my sister's SSRIs, they don't work the second time around. Is this the case with PPIs?
