Acid rebound is a big deal with PPIs. I was on protonix for 12 years and anytime I didn't take it I had awful pain and heartburn. Since I had a hiatal hernia and near constant acid reflux I relied on protonix for relief. If your LES function is not compromised in some way and your trying to taper down your use of protonix then I'd follow the advice of your doctor to do so. However, because of acid rebound you're likely to have some bad days.
