Just wanted to drop in and say I was brave enough to cut back on my PPI's 3 days ago. I was on 20 mg a day and I'm now taking only half the tablet.
I am feeling pretty ok actually. I have even eaten some of the foods that I normally would not touch such as a chinese take away and pastry (low fat though)!
The foods which really bother me are hard grains - brown rice and bagels, so keeping off these fellas. My stomach has to work hard to digest them and I get too much acid. I am enjoying eating more fish/vegetables and baked/dried fruits.Lowering carbs helps a bit I think but I have some with each meal.
I will keep you posted with my progress. This GERD business is a tough one, but I'm fighting it head on now, I've had enough of the suffering.
Good luck to everyone
