I know some of you are also dealing with those things...what are you doing to manage or what have you found that helps?
I've been on nexium since 13wks, but have been having heartburn/reflux again which I take maalox for. Last night though I had an attack of gastritis ...haven't had one in a long time, wow, not fun ! I'm out of maalox so I took 4 tums which did absolutely nothing. The pain and nausea got severe so I took a zofran, 2 tylenol, and 2 benadryl which helped a little until it subsided. They always last about 3-4hrs...had it lasted any longer I was going to go to ER. My stomach feels sore today and I have a stiff neck from sleeping in an awkward position (trying to get comfortable ). I'm calling my dr because I absolutely do not want to go through that again if it can be prevented. I'm not sure what else can be done though . I have no idea what triggered it.
Lizzy, you said your dr doubled your dose of prevacid...wondering if nexium can be taken twice per day...going to ask .
