Finally, I was forced to visit my GP in late 2006 due to increasing attacks of acid reflux, especially at night. Acid reflux is where acid from the stomach travels back up the esophagus and into the mouth, causing a burning sensation in the throat. The condition reached a stage where he was taking antacid tablets up to five times a night.
I have had acid reflux for several years and am managing it medically with Prilosec. Over the past few months, I had noticed that the reflux was getting worse so I added Pepcid AC at night and more recently doubled my Prilosec dose as I had obvious symptoms of esophagitis. My GP also prescribed lansoprazole, a proton pump inhibitor. After a month the acid reflux stopped. I thought I was cured. But three weeks after finishing the course of the tablets, the reflux returned and I began to suffer from heartburn, which I had never experienced before. Also, my entire digestive system started to slow down and I became constipated. My colon is still sensitive to this day. Then I see my GP again, he suggested Refluxamine, a natural acid reflux relief. I started using Refluxamine a few weeks ago and although I am still taking all my antacid medications, the symptoms of my esophagitis have disappeared, as well as the side effect of the antacid and lansoprazole. I continue with Refluxamine now. It sure would be great if you could phase out all antacids like Prilosec and Pepcid AC.
One thing I like about Refluxamine is that it only took a few days to see a positive result when starting the product. Also, since Refluxamine is made with all-natural ingredients and no steroids, fillers, or harmful chemicals, it’s pretty safe to take on a regular basis, according to my doctor. At first, I am afraid that my blood pressure will rise as Refluxamine contains licorice, but my doctor assured me that it will not affect my blood pressure to an abnormal level.
