Diagnosed with Distal Esophagitis at the EG junction and the Gastro said he found reddening and inflammatory changes. Said GERD caused it and Prescribed Zantac 150 2x day for next few months. Never had GERD before. Symptoms started after stopping 18 months of Norotripyline to prevent migraines which worked as it ended the migraine nightmare. Surprised because while waitingmonths to get upper Endo Scope symptoms (belching and neausa) seemed to get less in duration and intensity. From reading postings in this forum wondering if this is low acid rather than too much and if taking the Zantac will make condition worse or med dependent in long term. I bought the 75 instead if 150 dose to hedge my bet but hesitant to start meds. Is my thinking valid? Anyone with knowledge, experience or same diagnosis and would be so kind to share thoughts or experience..
