Hi, have been a user or esomeprazole for over 12 years, about 6 months ago started getting horrendous burning stomach pains, GP thought it was h pylori so made me come of PPI, was hard but managed it and stomach pains went away, took one 20mg after 4 weeks as had a little bit of acid, the pain back again, stopped again and just used ranitidine which was fine, did the job. Every now and then I need something stronger so take a PPI and within a few hours pain back again and with only one 20mg tablets the pain take 2 days to go. I am 100% convinced that esomeprazole is too strong now and I no longer need it. The only thing that is causing problems is that I now have a really irritated throat and raspy voice and feel a bit chesty which I think is all acid related. I clearly need something stronger than ranitidine which does not stop acid production just clears it up. Are there any PPIs that are less aggressive. Thanks
