I have used acid blocking drugs on and off for the past 2 years. In march I finally got off nexium, but occationally I still feel like I have too much acid in my stomach. I don't want my stomach to damage itself. Some mornings I wake up with a sore stomach, I make too much acid while sleeping. So, for the past few weeks, I've been taking a 10mg generic famotidine tablet about 30 minutes before bed with some crackers and water. This has been enough to protect my stomach until morning. During the day I can eat normally and my stomach appears to make acid to break down my food. I have read medical desciptions on acid blockers, and many researchers believe that when people take acid blockers daily, the chemical signal to make acid builds up in the stomach lining, and as soon as acid blockers are stopped, then all that built up chemical signal is released causing the stomach to make massive amounts of acid (acid revenge). Taking the mild acid blocker that wears off by morning allows the stomach to make acid during the day, so there is no build up of the chemical signal in the stomach lining.
I no longer have acid reflux so any burning is confined to my stomach. If you want to know how I cured my acid reflux just ask, but it is another story.
