Hi, I am a regularl poster on both GERD and gastritis forums. I have been on esomeprazole and ranitadine for many years and am currently awaiting ensodoscopy for gastritis due to anti biotics and pain killers.I was asked to come off medication prior to this test and not given enough time to do it gradually so panicked and was in great discomfort for the first couple of days, until a poster on the gasrtitis website suggested zinc, oh my god what amazing stuff, apart from 2 tablets of 17mg each (cannot mention brand or it will be moderated) and 1 ranitidine in the last 6 days I am virtually pain free, no gastritis, no acid nothing. I find it all too good to be true to be honest and wonder what the zic is masking, if I carry on like this I do not think I need the endoscopy although I will still have it on 18th. I really have no gastritis pain after months in agony and the acid is so minimal it is hardly there. Anyone else tried this and what happened in the long term.
