    Hi there

    I came off them after six years, you just need to drop the dose down gradually. I am surprised about the bleeding gums mind you. If in doubt try and get to see a gastro specialist. I am no Dr but wish you the very best of luck.

      i have been to many doctors in thease three years on ppi. i have been to 4gastro specialist,2 GP, 2 Ent spl, dentist . i don't trust doctors anymore. i was very fit before this ppi nightmare started. how long did you tapered your ppi ? and what kind of rebound did you faced ? its been almost 4 months i am taking zantac instead of ppi . but i am still struggling. few things has improved but i still have lot of acidity and my stomach hurts . i am wondering how long it will take the rebound to go or i have something else like zollinger Ellison.

    Hi and sorry about yr current ordeal.

    It can be hard to come off ppi. It needs to be gradual.

    Have u changed yr lifestyle to h3lp yrself?

    Ive been ill for 2 yrs and things have improved a little. Its hard work.

    See gastro. Bleeding gums is often low vitamin C.
