I understand your fear of PPIs and their side effects. I was on them for many years (over 20), and had no issues. Most prescript
ion medications have long lists of potential side effects. Unfortunately, sometimes a month is not enough time on a PPI. If you don't get relief from something like Prilosec, you can switch to something else. Protonix was the only PPI that I go relief from. I also would avoid ibuprofen products, such as Advil.
