Protonix

Anyone out there on Protonix? I was diagnosed with acid reflux and was put on Nexium which helped slightly with my burping but I was still getting stomach aches. I went for an abdominal ultrasound, endescopy and CT scan with IV contrast and all came back fine. My Dr just switched me to Protonix.

I have used Protonix and it helped me tremendously, much better than Nexium.  I am presently having difficulties getting my health insurance to pay for it.   I think it is better than Prilosec also.  Good luck.

I'm on protonix and it's great!  I take one every morning and without it I'm in trouble around dinner time.  It'll take 2/3 days before it takes full effect but after that it does wonders.  Welcome to the club.
