Proton Pump Inhibitors - Withdrawal Affects?
Do they have withdrawal affects? I'm currenting being treated for acid reflux, but I believe its bile reflux from gallbladder surgery so they would only make it worse...

Are there any withdrawal affects and what are they?

Taking protonix currently for 3 months once a day 40mg

There can be rebound reflux. In other words, when the proton pumps that help to form the acid are shut down for a period of time, when they turn back on the production of acid can be much higher than normal for a period of time. When someone comes off of a PPI, it might be a good idea to taper slowly and then transition to an H2 product. 'Cold turkey' is not a good idea.

Thanks for the answer...I will cut the pill in halves...then quarters...then H2s until I can find proper treatment for bile reflux disease which I believe I got when gallbladder failed...and then got removed but still massive pain
