  • Should I take a 30mg lansoprazole?

    I am trying to quit lansoprazole and haven't took one in 8 days. The heartburn I am getting today is unbearable, it's like pure burning acid. Baking soda helps for half an hour or an hour and the extreme heartburn is back. I feel like I can't ever completely get off lasnoprazole.
