Hi everyone, while I understand PPIs have many downsides, they also provide a good amount of relief from acid reflux. I limit my use to about once or twice a day.
There are so many different options out there omeprazole, esomeprazole, pantaprozole, etc... So wanted to see from those that use PPIs or H2 blockers they had the best experience with or found most effective. Here is my experience:
Omeprazole - good, but not as effective, caused a bit of nausea for some reason
Esomeprazole - caused major bloating
Lansoprazole - not too effective from my experience as doesnt give immediate relief
Pantaprazole - same as lansoprazole and requires taking several days in a row to have an effect or requires a higher does
Rabeprazole - found this to be the most effective particularly for one time use at a lower does, however does also cause minor bloating
Dexlansoprazole - caused stomach pain
H2 blocker (famotidine,nitazidine) - very effective for immediate effect, but causes a strong rebound and the next day the acid reflux is even stronger
What are your experiences with PPIs/H2 blockers?
