I'm a long-time Prevacid user, and my GERD has gone off the charts in the last month. It's clear that a lot of folks on this board and others have had great success with DGL.
I've only had a few doses, and I'm already getting some relief from the GERD symptoms. However, I've also gained a weird headache, which I can only attribute to the DGL. My question is, has anyone else found that DGL gives them headaches? If so, were you able to push past them (i.e., did they go away after you'd been using it awhile?) Thanks!

I never had headaches using DGL but since you are already getting relief from your GERD symptoms stick with the DGL for a little while longer and see if your body maybe needs to adjust to it.

Good luck.

I don't want to discourage you from taking it if it's helping your GERD, but I don't think the headache will get better.  I developed a headache after taking DGL for about 4 months.  I quit taking it and now if I take even one tablet, I will get a headache.

I've been taking DGL for about 2 weeks now and have not had a problem with headaches. I have tried two brands of DGL, the names of which I cannot remember. One brand of DGL is very bland and the taste of the pills is pretty bad, though tolerable. They taste like pure licorice and even burn a little when I have them in my mouth. With another brand the pills are larger (higher miligrams) and they have added some fructose which makes them more tolerable. While neither brand has given me a headache, I'm wondering if the fructose, which is sugar, might be an ingredient in your brand and if that might be the culprit?

Just a question. I might be way off base. Tummytuck
