Hi Sultan :) I developed GERD after taking my Uc meds for many years and what I use now is Prilosec to help control the symptoms. So far it seems to be working fine but there is also Protonix which I heard is pretty good. It took about 3 days before the Prilosec started working for me.
 
Edited to add: Definately take your Uc meds with food to avoid any more GERD related problems.

UC and GERD make a wicked combination - as if ONE of them wouldn't be bad enough!

I take Aciphex for my GERD. Are you still on pred? Pred made my heartburn so awful :(

Talk with your GI - perhaps s/he can help.
