This is a nightmare!! What side effects are you experiencing and how do you handle it?????

Somewhat. But side effects subside over time. I have been thinking of having nissen fundoplication or linx procedure for GERD and hiatal hernia.
I take 40mg 1/2 hr before supper and the only side effect I get is muscle cramps in my calf of the leg. I've been on it for about 5 years. I get scoped this year so I hope I have no issues.
I have similar side effects, especially joint pain and tingling nerves ..but not dry mouth, tons of something…sticky saliva? Jackielb…..how long did symptoms take to subside?
I’m on 40mg pantaprozole for 9 months now and so far no issues.
Maybe 2 months.
Well, there’s hope then they keep changing my PPI but I think I’ve got a stick to this one despite the side effects. If something doesn’t work, I’m gonna have to consider the surgery and I am not eager to do so. 🙂
What surgery are you referring to? I had Covid Jan 2022. Recently been told I might have splanchnic modui. I can’t find a lot on this anyone dealing with the same thing??
No, sorry , I never heard of that. What are your symptoms? I was referring to surgery called fundoplication… in a support group , I hear ( mostly, but not only) bad news about successful cases of this surgery. I would love to know if there is unbiased data on the success rate and how common complications are… especially in populations over 65.. but at some point I may have to decide on the best surgeon & go forward. Mayo ( at least in one location) is not even taking names for a waiting list.
PPI ‘s are only meant for short term use , a few weeks or a couple months . Dr’s keep prescribing for years though .
You can google it .
Btw, ilean good luck with your condition. Can’t you ask Dr. to explain more clearly?
