My doctor and myself believe that I have LPR. My only symptoms are that one day I wake up with a massive sore throat and I am unable to talk for several weeks afterward. He prescribed omeprazole 40mg and I have not had any symptoms until this week. I want off the drug so I am watching what I eat, no late eating, losing weight, etc. It looks as if I will have to step up the pace a good bit. I am going to continue the omeprazole for a few months but was wondering if there is a particular optimum time to take the drug?
Thanks for the replies. I have experienced no problem for the past 6mo and made the mistake that the drug was working optimally. I am now experimenting with times to take the drug but before a large meal is where I am going to start.
