Hi - I finally had my hospital appointment yesterday where the specialist is happy for me to wean off my medication (Ezomeprazole). She said to start by taking one every other day instead of the one per day i take now however I am not sure what to do after that or for how long? any advice please? thanks

    Ezomeprozole????? ( PPI'S)  are lethal medication, how long you been on them? And why? You're phycalogicaly addicted to them! Just quit. I did it, and have felt better all round.

      Not that easy ! When you just stop taking PPI medication you get back flue of acid come up every time you eat , so as to be gone slowly

    after about a week of taking one every other day then try 1 every 3 days do this a few times then after that just take one if you get reflux really bad, it will take a few weeks before your body gets use to not taking them, this approach worked for me

    I dunno, I just quit after about trying every other day for a week. It's been a week since I've taken it. Honestly, I don't think that it helped very much in my case.  Just watch your diet while you are coming off of it.

    I still use Ranitadine for now. Mostly I still burp a lot at night when I go to bed but I'm sleeping well. My trick is something that's only legal in some states.

    Thanks for you responses most of which were helpful. i have taken a tablet every other day and after a week i intend to take one every two days then three and so on until i am off them. I know you cannot just quit incase you get a rebound so helpful comments only please
