I've had GERD for years and have been perscribed different antacids for 15 years. I had a scope done about 5 years ago and it came back fine. Ive been taking Aciphex daily for the GERD and never had any problems unless i forget to take it. Even when i forget, i don't even realize that i didn't take my medicine until hours later. I stay away from peppers, raw veggies, fried food, whatever i know that will trigger heartburn. For the last two days the indigestion has been terrible. I've been taking my Aciphex once every 12 hrs instead of the prescribed dosage of 1 every 24. Also, taking Pepito Bismol at least 4 times between my pill to ease the burning. I've never had it this bad before and haven't done anything or eaten anything different than usual. Any suggestions? It just wont stop. View Thread
