Everyone here hates being on PPIs to some degree. They are the medication we are prescribed for having heartburn symptoms, but they do not treat the root of the problem and for some, do more harm than good. There are threads here all the time about people attempting to stop taking them and how bad the rebound can be. The question is, after the rebound is over (if it even does end nicely), do most people feel better or worse?
From my experience, the rebound is horrible, it still is i am trying to get off by substituting ppi with ranitidine 3x150mg , its been 4 months now but the rebound is still there, i could not even reduce the dosage. and i feel like my stomach is full of peptic ulcers.
Can anyone that has managed to quit tell me if they are better or worse off of PPIs? I've seen threads of people struggling to quit, but I want to hear from people that have actually done it.
