Stopping lansoprazole

Posted , 5 users are following.

Have been taking30mg  lansoprazole for many years every day and am trying to wean off of it. Started 3 days ago and am using apple cider vinegar instead of that drug and not using Miralax, Metamucil. How long will I have this heart burn?

    Keep at it.  I took prevacid for about 5 years and it took me about 3 months before I started feeling better.  I didn't quit cold turkey.  You will experience unbearable rebound.  I had to use pepcid and antacids for when the burning was real bad.  I used ACV with meals and avoided food triggers.  Good luck.

    The lansoprazole is there to stop your body producing too much acid so you need to ween off by taking them every other day for a week then every three days then every four days then Finnish- taking apple cider vinegar is madness
