I have only had it significantly for a relatively short time now get some problems after I eat but mainly at night when the acid comes back up my throat. I now have aconstant mild sore throat and cough. How on earth do you know what to take all the advice both from drs and fellow sufferers is different. I took omeprazole for a short while only three days but it didnt agree with me bad stomach ache so I came off it had also had no effect in that time, probably not long enough. But my gp says that if you ttakePPIs as soon as you come off them the problem returns. Now taking advance gaviscon ( which bizarrely is peppermint flavour) and if this doesnt help ( and it isnt very much) ranitidine which is also an acid suppressant but less powerful than PPIs.which I havent tried yet as quite honestly I am worried about side effects etc. I am on a strict diet have raised my bed somewhat by putting pillows under the mattress dont eat for 2-3 hrs before bedtime. No alcohol caffeine etc. Worried that I may get cancer.
