I’ve not been in here a while having been through a few tests last year and found the main culprit for the daily runs was my heartburn meds.
Since I stopped taking lanzaprisol I’d say I’m 90% better with my ibs and only get it if super stressed out or eaten something that doesn’t agree with me.
However the heartburn has now taken over where the ibs has settled.
I’m currently taking just ranatidine 300mg a day but it’s not enough. I was told to take before bed but found by lunch time the heartburn was back. So been juggling the tablet by breaking in half but to no avail.
I’m supposed to use gavisgon but find that can led to having an upset stomach so am avoiding it if I can.
I’ve made an appointment to see a GP but wonder does anyone else take a high dose of ranatidine? It does work for me within 30 to 40 mins and I don’t really want to try another type of pill for fear of getting the runs daily again.
