I had my endoscopy yesterday and it went well. Found a hiatal hernia and some esophagitis. Doc changed my meds from Nexium (80mg/day was doing nothing) to Zegerid. My insurance is giving me a hard time (they won't even pay for Nexium) and this medicine is about $251 for a month's supply (2 pills a day) but hopefully are going to approve it. Anyway, I took one pill yesterday at 1pm after my scope and then again as regular this morning. I feel a ton better! The acid reflux is almost nothing to minimal and the 'lump sensation' in my throat is gone. Could be I'm having a good day or (praying) that this med is making an immediate difference, which my doc said would happen. Wondering what others' experiences are with it.
