Last week and the week the before i was taking dexilant 30 mg. but not daily . I only took it a few days and I was halfing it by putting half in capsules. I can literally count the times I took it. Now, this week I've been having excessive saliva and acid and nothing I seem to do will stop it. Saliva all day long...

Anyone have any suggestions of what to do to rid myself of this acid rebound?

May I add That this is the very reason that I didn't want to take it because I get too many side effects with it. Ugggh!

    acid rebound just has to pass unfortunatley, if you take anything to mask it, that just prolongs it and makes it worse.  sometimes things like gaviscon can be used, as they form a barrier, but generally, just wait it out.  It shouldnt cause a problem for too long

      Is it possible to have a acid rebound if only taking the PPI for a short time and only a few , not even a whole week?

      Would zantac help or make it worse?

      The thing is I can feel the acid in my stomach and I don't want my gastritis to flare up again.

    rebound isnt really a side effect, its just your bodies response as it trys to equalise itself - just one of those things

     taking them intermittently like that is actually how you get rebound, the on and off effect makes them worse.  its better to take them regularly then slowly taper off them to minimise the effect

      Do I get back on or do i just wait it out?

      I was following my herbalist advice to not take anymore.

      id rather follow the advice of a trained dr to a herbalist who has no training that can be quantified to be honest.  its really up to you, it will pass in time but will be uncomfortable.  I would return to the gp, go back on the meds and follow his advice, then if he agrees that you should stop them then again follow his instruction to taper them slowly, then any discomfort should be minimal

      The dexilant was making me very weak and muscle aches, as a matter of fact most of the PPI's that I've tried was giving me too many side effects.

      The dr. told me to take for 2 weeks either way it may have been the same. She never told me to taper off.

      Though some have told me that it could just be hormonal when going through perimenopause acid reflux is definitely a popular sympton. Hopefully it's just that. Thanks!
