i have been on 20 mg of omeprazole twice a day (40mg total) for a month now - for gerd and esophagitis .
I still get heartburn. what does it mean?
I am no worse if I just take a Pepcid, perhaps slightly better with the Pepcid.
I have been taking the prescribed ppi-s so I can complete the treatment for esophagitis; but I need to stop because I still have heartburn, they don't seem to help and I am also worried about the kidneys (had some loss of function over the past couple of years).
What might be reasons why pips can't stop the heartburn?
I have been through a lot of stress, anxiety and depression lately. Can a seriously imapired emotional state cause extra acid to the point even PPiS don't work?
