Made me dizzy so I started to take it before going to slee. Did not know I shouldn't do that. Started to have problems with my esophagas. Burning - felt like a bubble that would not come out. Cold not eat for over a week. Could not get food down. very painful. No one could tell me what to do to make it better. I would thing someone should know. Never take it again
