Hi all, I  was reading some posts earliet and would like to know what DGL stands for. It sounded like something that could help me. I am newly on nexium, don't like the dizziness and headaches that it is causing. Also taking zelnorm in the am and ativan for anxiety. It helps with the gerd too. I am actually going wed. this week for an upper gi series to see if i do have a hiatel hernia. Thanks, dawn

Deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL)---supports the body's natural defense mechanisms by stimulating the mass, quality, and production of mucous, a major component of the stomach's protective lining. Licorice in its deglycyrrhizinated form is side-effect free.

try planetary formulas DGL as it tastes better...

jamie, thank you so much for your reply. would i have to order that licorice or would a health food store have it? I will go out tomorrow if i can get some locally. there are so many questions that i have about all of this and i have learned alot just by reading the info here. first, i will wait and see if they actually diagnose me with a hiatel hernia. I don't know why they went ahead and gave me 40 mgs of nexium anyway. i'm not sure how long i will take it because it also made me pretty dizzy along with the headache. i was thinking that the side effects may go away but not sure. thanks so much. :-) dawn
