I think I was misdiagnosed and prescribed ppi.
Doctor thought I have too much acid but I actually hadn’t enough, that’s why I had dyspepsia. I searched second opinion which confirmed my thoughts.
The problem is that this second doctor told me just to stop taking ppi, but I am afraid to do so. Namely, lately I was on 60 mg lansoprazol per day - as it didn’t help and so I doubled and doubled the dosage in hope that higher dose will have more effect.
If I quit cold turkey I will get revenge. I am not sure what damage have it made on my sphincter - if it still works. Is it possible that I have irreversible damage and that it won’t start working again?
I read that if the level of acid is too low spinchter doesn’t work properly. And that it needs for proper work more acid.
How to achieve this? With ppi lowering the acid and spinchter not working properly- I am in vicious circle.
Does anyone has any advice how to make it the most painless possible?
How to lower the dosage? What to eat? What other remedies to use?
I will appreciate any advice, experience, thought.
Thank you in advance,
