    Was diagnosed with GERG after an upper GI test. Doctor prescribed Omeprazole 20mg once a day for one year. But did not seem to work as well as he had hoped after another upper GI test. So he prescribed Pantoprazole 40mg twice a day. Seems to have worked better and will soon have another upper GI test to see if things are improving in my esophagus.

    My doctor prescribed this to counter my persistent heartburn and incipient GERD. I've been popping antacids for years. I just completed the prescribed 14-day regimen.

    I've taken omeprazole for maybe 10 years, and that's how long I've suffered with leg, foot and hand cramps, but for the last several years the cramps have become a nightmare: they are severe, frequent, and long-lasting. Sometimes each cramp lasts for as long as an hour, and occurs in more than one spot at a time--try having cramps in both feet and lower legs at the same time...it's ... Show Full Comment
