Following an earlier post about PPI's, made me think again about getting off the Lanzoprazole ( I'm on 15mg) which I have been on since before the PMR, so about 6 years. I tried to get off it a couple of years ago and switch to Ranitidine but found the acid reflux came back. Maybe I wasn't weaning off it properly? Is there some kind of protocol or is everyone different? If I was weaning off, could I be taking something else to replace it at the same time? I must admit I hate Gaviscon, so wouldn't want that! I haven't yet tried the yoghurt approach but wonder if that might only work for those who don't get acid symptoms. Maybe a pharmacist would be the best person to talk to?
