It last for 8-12 hrs, then symptoms return requiring 2 per day. I have experienced dizziness and increase in appetite, therefore weight gain, therefore more acid reflux. Prevacid works better, but still 2/day. UHC took me off it to play doctor and save THEM money.

This medicine has been a Godsend for me! It's allowed me to sleep through the night so much so that I sometimes "forget" I have GERD. Of course if I miss a dose, my body lets me know that night!

My doctor gave me a sample of protonix, which worked great! But alas my insurance wouldn'tcover it so they prescribed Omeprazerole. It has not helped my acid issue at all. And now I'm having severe stomach pains. I read the side effects today only to realize that constipation is one of them. I've stopped taking this medication cause I can't take much more pain. I want my prot ... Show Full Comment
