I'm new here, so thanks for listening! about 4 weeks ago, I began experiencing heartburn after I had been taking NSAIDs at night for about a week. So I started with Tums. Got worse, so I went to the doc. He put me on Protonix. It seemed to do the trick, at first. After a week of feeling normal, the gnawing pain and heartburn came back. I realized I hadn't been taking the med properly (1/2 hour before eating in the morning), so I began doing that, 2 - 40 mg Protonix per day. Then I added Prevacid at night on top of the Protonix. SLIGHT improvement, but it almost seems like its worsening again. Confused as to why it all got so much better then blew up again. Do I try a different PPI? Am I taking too much? This constant hunger pain is wearing me down. Advice and help would be greatly appreciated!!
