So, I'm currently taking (and have been since September '13) Protonix, a PPI and I know this is not recommended during the 1st trimester. I have been working with my GI Dr. to gradually ween myself off of it. I'm taking 20mg everyday (down from 40mg) and in the next few weeks I plan to take it every other day and on the off days take a Zantac. This is all with the hopes of totally replacing the Protonix with Zantac. My question is: How long should I be totally off the Protonix before TTC?
Also, I'm currently taking a multi-vitamin that only has about 1/2 the recommended dose of Folic Acid. I have been taking a Folic Acid supplement for a few weeks now on top of the multi-vitamin. Is there such thing as too much Folic Acid because I'm definitely taking more than 100% of the daily recommended just through supplements not to mention what I'm getting from food.
