i having decided to swicth my ppi with h2blocker so i want to know does it has the same kind of rebound hyper acid secretion like ppi has.
Why i want to swicth..
i was prescribed pantoprazole 40 mg for mild acidity , i dont have GERD or hernia . out of extreme stress i was getting acid & i was so dumb that i went doctor out of fear. from thats where my misery started . doc gave me pantoprazole 40mg which i took for first month its like wow what a med it my acid problem gone. after then when i tried to stop the med i got horrible acid rebound i thoght i have something else went doc he asked for an endoscopy which showed nothing. and at that time i did not know about that the rebound is caused by the med itself so itook it again .& its been 1.5 years i am taking the ppi
3 months ago i had another endoscopy which showes mild erosion in fundus(mild gastritis). now i dont understand how the hell that happend. i am ppi for so long.
now even on ppi i get epigastric area burning. Can somebody tell is it stomach or esophagus. i fear its esophagus. if it is then it can cause barrets.
i never get heartburn though (chest area).
so as its just reducing the hyperacidity (sour water erruction) and doing nothing else i want to quit the med.i told my GP too he said take Zantac . but i am worried it might cause some damage and also hoping that the rebound will go away & i can be normal again.
