I hate taking Prevacid but it is the only thing that helps me. I have GERD and hiatal hernia which I guess makes me doubly susceptible for reflux. I've been on it for 10 years and have tried on many occasions to cut back on it, but within 2 days I am waking up with burning throat and chest. The doctor says its safe. I'm not so sure.
I've been hoping that the surgeries I've read about, or the "ring" might be the answer. One surgery involves making cuts and the other involves taking tucks in the esophagus. I'm not so sure about the magnetic ring of metal beads - what if it breaks?
Does anyone know anything about them? Have any of you been on PPI's for as long as I have?
