Last year I saw an ENT because I had a hoarse voice for 3 weeks. He checked my larynx and said I had inflammation due to GERD. He told me to make some diet changes and to take Esomeprazole 40mg every day. After three months he told me to continue for a year. Close to a year, friends were concerned I was on it fir too long and I called the ENT and he took me off it. After stopping it I have suffered of the most horrible heartburn and excessive burping. It’s been three weeks and it’s not as bad, but the problem still going on. I have read this is the drug’s rebound. How long should this last?
I am really mad, because I think this drug was prescribed unnecessarily. I was 39 and in excellent physical condition.
