I also take 80 mg per day in two doses of 40mg each. I worry about the dosage when they have come out that it can cause liver problems etc but am told that I must take it also. The problem I have is that I don’t think I have many symptoms of GERD. I GUESS I have what they call silent GERD. I am hoping I can be cured of BE. BUT I wonder if that means cancer will not happen. What are your dietary restrictions. I worry if fresh orange juice which I love is too much citrus or sugar both of which I am told to restrict. I have tried to limit my intake of red meat but I get so tired of chicken and fish. I also have to have one mug of morning coffee and I like dark chocolate. I do eat a lot of plain wallaby yogurt which is the best very creamy and soothing. Any other suggestions from anyone out there who has succeeded in getting over Barrett’s esophagus with no more dysplasia and goes in only every six months instead of every three months for endoscopes?

I have silent reflux. I take Pepsid. These doctors give medicines that a so dangerous and have so many side effects. I don’t know I have reflux so that is scary itself. I’m very Leary of PPI’S. Everyone is so different.
