@eileenmaud What does your Dr. say about your research findings? It might just be me but he would be my choice before changing changing my meds. Also, what did your research find re an alternate treatment to Barretts if you stop the PPI's?

@maxsproudmom My Mayo Dr. tells me let your body be your guide, if you eat an apple and it gives you reflux, don't eat apples. What works for me is to eat small meals and if you can eat your large meal at noon and your lunch sized meal at dinner. No food 3 hours prior to bed time and no chocolate, rats.
@contentandwell Most people who have had Barrett's caused by a loose sphincter/hiatial hernia that is inoperable would probably be on a PPI type medication for life according to my Mayo Gastro. MD. Mine is not correctable because where the Barrett's is located where a wrap or the ring would prevent the MD to see if the Barrett's returned. I too take a generic Nexium 40 MG 2 x a day plus a Zantac.

@colleenyoung Thanks for the links! Need to talk with my Rochester MD, to see if he would recommend changing and if AZ even offers the area of specialization needed.

@laylabug I find it very weird that Rochester accepts Medicare but AZ doesn't. Guess I'll have to continue to fly to Rochester vs a 4 hr drive to AZ from our kids house in So Cal when we are visiting them.
