I have been on this med for about 3 months. It really helps but only if I take it 4 times a day which for me is hard to remember. Other than that, I would recommend it for reflux and esophgitis.

Comment:
I have been taking this med for 6 days, and have had no relief from heartburn. Neither Omperazole nor Nexium had helped either. I find the regimen of taking 4 pills at various times difficult, my day seems to be centered around when to take the next dose, or if it is ok to eat something. I am hoping that after a bit more time, it will help.
