Had gallbladder out over a year and a half. No problems not even GERD which I used to suffer from . Now with upper abdominal pain and radiating to the back . Just like when I had my gallbladder. Started taking protonix 40 mg x1 a day. Still with the pain after I eat . Dr prescribed carafate with meals and before dinner as needed. I have read that you should take this before eating on an empty stomach. I am currently taking the protonix 30 min before eating. Not sure if I should continue taking the protonix first and then follow with the carafate then eat and then take my other medications . Any suggestions on what is the correct way to take this medication would be greatly appreciated.
