  • Stopping PPIs, your experience

    I did it. I weaned off PPIs after two months of 80 mg pantoprazole/protonix, for about 2 weeks. I know I went fast but the side effects were killing me. I was most probably misdiagnosed with LPR , when in reality i had a bad sinus infection. As it usually goes for other people, i was perfectly fine...

  • Getting off of PPI’s.

    Getting off of PPI’s and the acid rebounds.  I was wondering if anyone has ever heard of a gastric tube inserted into your stomach.  With a battery operated pump you could pump your acid it out as often as needed until your stomach stops producing too much acid. Even getting fed intravenously...
