Why don't drugs like aciphex, prilosec, nexium, or protonix work for me? I get this question alot in my medical practice. The answer is these drugs are perfect if you over produce Hydrochloric acid. However, Rarely do I come across a patient who truly over produces HCL. Most of the time their Acid reflux or Gastroesophageal reflux is caused by something else: Diet, weight, overeating, or LOW production of hydrochloric acid. Yes, Acid reflux can be caused by LOW PRODUCTION of HCl, you didn't read that wrong. Taking proton pump inhibitors (PPI's) like aciphex, prilosec, nexium, or protonix is perfect if you happen to be one of those few people who over produce hydrochloric acid. But if that's not you, well, you'll be asking yourself and your doctor "Why don't these drugs work for me?"

My course on how to cure GERD: http://acid-reflux-and-gerd.com/ Disclaimer: http://acid-reflux-and-gerd.com/terms-and-conditions/ PPIs ( proton pump inhibitors) such as , Omeprazole, Prilosec, Prevacid, Aciphex, Protonix, and Nexium should not be taken more then 4 weeks , sometimes 8 weeks maximum, because of their side effects. You cannot stop it abruptly, it may cause severe GERD. Discontinue slowly, substituting one dose of PPI with medication from the other group: H-2 blocker (Cimetidine) or Antacid (TUMS) There is no rule how fast you may go. Its may take you 2-4 weeks or even longer. At the same time consider incorporating other natural substances such as Aloe Vera juice or DGL. It is very important at this time to identify the cause of YOUR acid reflux, see my video on this topic: 8 Common causes of Acid Reflux and GERD. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O6fWR_ahglU Stay healthy Dr. V Waks

Eczema or Psoriasis (auto-immune conditions). Due to Prevacid, Protonix, Nexium (PPIs) Could PPIs (Proton Pump Inhibitors) such as Omeprazole, Prilosec, Prevacid, Aciphex, Protonix, Pantoprazole, Nexium cause Eczema, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis (RA), diabetes type 1, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis (auto-immune conditions) The article was published in PubMed: Esomeprazole Induces Upper Gastrointestinal Tract Transmucosal Permeability Increase, states that: "Esomeprazole induced a significant transmucosal leak in the upper GI tract of patients taking the drug for the first time. The leak occurred quickly, within days of first taking the drug. The leak was also reversed within days of stopping the medication." It concludes that:" There are potential implications for transmucosal leak of other medications that a patient on a PPI may be taking, as well as possible leak of endogenous peptides/proteins. The clinical consequences of this phenomenon are currently unknown, but are potentially important. PMID: 18684245 DOI: 10.1111/j.1365-2036.2008.03824.x The concept explained. When "gaps" got formed in GI, big particles, proteins, could "leak" into the blood stream, acting as Anti-gens (Ag). Immune system attacks them, by forming Anti-bodies (Ab). Ag-Ab complex deposited in tissues. Because Ag-Ab system is a foreign substance in the tissues, immune system attacks the host own tissues. its called auto-immune condition. Identify the cause of your GERD and treat it accordingly by natural means, then you do not need to take PPIs. 8 Common causes of Acid Reflux and GERD. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O6fWR_ahglU Stay healthy Dr. V Waks

Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) such as Prilosec, Nexium, Protonix, and Aciphex have been available for about 20 years and each year about 15 million people use them and bring in $10 billion every year. PPIs are vastly overprescribed by MDs and because they are available over the counter, are overused by patients. The major known side effects of PPIs include poor digestion, poor absorption of B12, iron, calcium, and magnesium which lead to an increased risk for osteoporosis, senile dementia, C difficile infections, pneumonia and now according to articles in the January 11, 2016 issue of the journal Internal Medicine an increased risk for having chronic kidney disease and, as documented in the June of 2015 issue of the journal PLoS One, heart attacks. PPIs also block the metabolism of Valium, Coumadin, DIlantin, Digoxin and probably decrease the effectiveness of Plavix. For more information, visit http://doctorsaputo.com

Proton Pump Inhibitors or PPIs including Nexium, Prevacid, Prilosec and Omeprazole improve symptoms of heartburn medically referred to as GERD or Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease. They also assist in treating ulcers and protecting the stomach from irritation by aspirin. Unfortunately an increasing number of significant side effects appear associated with long term use. In spite of advertising claims highlighting superiority of one drug over another, differences between the products are minor. For many people with “acid reflux,” antacids like Maalox, Mylanta, Rolaids and Tums or antihistamines including cimetidine and ranitidine provide faster relief with fewer adverse reactions.

Lecture 1 of 3 Antacids are one of the oldest and most common drug classes for Acid reflux, Heartburn and GERD, but are not without side effects. Dr. Waks explains the basics of Antacids, what they are made of, how they work, and how they treat acid reflux. Antacids are great if you know the cause of your heartburn or acid reflux and unlike proton pump inhibitors (aciphex, prilosec, nexium, protonix) they don't permanently block the production of Hydrochloric acid. Here what some common antacids are made of: Aluminum containing antacids: Equate, Maalox, Mylanta, Gelusil. Calcium containing antacids: Andrews Antacid, Equate, Pepto-Bismol, Rennie (tablets), Rolaids, Tums, Gaviscon.

Top Ten Drugs That Cause Kidney Damage: Please Do Not Ignore This Please SUBSCRIBE : http://bit.ly/2e9Su11 The damage to the kidneys can often be caused by the use of various drugs, so we tried to classify them today and reveal the top ten, at least according to types: antibiotic, analgesic, etc. These are the top 10 drugs which damage kidneys: 1. Antibiotics, such as ciprofloxacin, vancomycin, methicillin, sulfonamides. 2. Analgesics, like acetaminophen, as well as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID): ibuprofen, aspirin, naproxen, etc. 3. Antiviral drugs, such as indinavir and tenofovir, both used to treat HIV, and acyclovir (brand name Zovirax) which is used in the case of herpes infection. 4. Anticonvulsants, like trimethadione (brand name Tridione), used to treat seizures and other conditions, and phenytoin (brand name Dilantin). 5. COX-2 inhibitors, such as celecoxib (brand name Celebrex). Two drugs, rofecoxib (brand name Vioxx), and valdecoxib (brand name Bextra) have been withdrawn from the market due to cardiovascular toxicity. They fall into the special class of NSAID which were intended to be safer for the stomach, but pose the same threat as other NSAIDs for kidney damage. 6. Chemotherapy drugs, like quinine, interferons, cisplatin, pamidronate, carboplatin, tacrolimus, cyclosporine, mitomycin C, bevacizumab; and anti-thyroid drugs, like propylthiouracil, used in the treatment of an overactive thyroid. 7. High blood pressure drugs, including captopril (brand name Capoten). 8. Heartburn drugs of the proton pump inhibitor class, such as pantoprazole (brand name Protonix), omeprazole (brand name Prilosec), esomeprazole (brand names Nexium, Esotrex), lansoprazole (brand name Prevacid), and rabeprazole (brand names Rabecid, Aciphex). 9. Lithium, used in the treatment of bipolar disorders. 10.

At our SV Ayurveda Clinic in New Jersey, we treat a full spectrum of imbalances, including severe acid reflux conditions as in Barrett’s Esophagitis. Dr. Mishra always emphasizes finding the “hetu” or root cause of a condition - otherwise we will go round in circles chasing symptom after symptom. I am sharing this case history, not only because it shows our success with this condition, even without the use of any pharmaceuticals, but because it illustrates how when you focus on finding the etiological root condition, with the right SVA tools, there is very little you cannot address successfully. Barrett's Esophagitis is a condition in which the cells that make up your esophagus were damaged by exposure to acid from the stomach. The condition often develops after years of experiencing gastroesophageal reflux (GERD). About 5-10% of people with GERD develop Barrett's esophagus, and it affects men almost twice as often as women and is usually diagnosed after the age of 55. Modern medicine uses proton pump inhibitors (PPI's) most commonly in the use of GERD and Barrett's esophagus. These medicines reduce the production of acid by blocking the enzyme in the wall of the stomach that produces acid. Omeprazole (prilosec), prevacid, dexilent, aciphex, Protonix and Nexium are some examples of PPI's. These medications are known to have severe side-effects - kidney damage, dementia, and weakening of the bones. Not to mention that they often do not help because they do not get to the root of the problem What I find more often in my practice is this: after you eat a meal, the stomach squirts acid into the duodenum, and the gall bladder squirts bile into the duodenum to dilute the stomach acid, so that the food doesn't burn the lining of the gut as it makes its way through the small and large intestines. However, the bile can get thick and turn sludge-like for various reasons and then it may not flow so well, as it sits in the gall bladder, stagnating. If it sits too long it can develop gallstones. This patient had an underlying subclinical thyroid condition in which his thyroid was underactive, creating laziness in the gall bladder. Thus, when he would eat the stomach acids were squirting into the duodenum but the bile was not, creating an acidic environment which, over time, burnt his esophagus. In his case we had to support the thyroid gland, then thin out the bile so it would flow again, and then fix the lining of the gut. Many of the gastroenterologists nowadays are not recommending the PPI's because they don't work in many of the cases, yet they do not know these other imbalances are creating the disturbance, and often times the patient is left on their own to suffer with their symptoms without knowing what to do. Usually the patient does worse on the PPI's because now they have two problems, lack of bile flow and lack of stomach acid! Again, as I state in all my case histories, if you do not get to the root of the problem, the treatment will be only minimally effective. By addressing the root cause, these patients are so happy to finally find relief once and for all from their resistant symptoms.

Natural Pharm Sorce LLC has formulated a natural treatment for immediate and long term relief from Acid Reflux, Heartburn, and GERD without reducing stomach acid. Betten-AidTM, is a combination of digestive enzymes and probiotics, sweetened with the natural sweeteners Stevia and Xylitol in a tasty chewable tablet. Many times this natural treatment can help reduce the need for drugs like Nexium®, Prevacid®, Prilosac®, Tagamet®, Rolaids® or Tums® without the side effects associated with these and other acid reducing agents. Do you suffer from Heartburn, Acid Reflux, IBS, or GERD? Are you taking Nexium®, Prevacid®, Prilosac®, Tagamet®, Rolaids®, Tums®? Are you aware of or have you experienced some of the potential side effects such as headache, diarrhea, upset stomach, bone density loss, osteopina, constipation, hives, skin rash, itching, difficulty breathing, swelling of the face, throat, tongue,lips, eyes, hands, feet, ankles, or lower legs? Natural Pharm Source LLC has formulated a simple natural treatment for instant and long term relief from Acid Reflux, Heartburn, IBS and GERD. Betten-AidTM has all natural ingredients, is naturally sweetened, has a pleasant flavor and does not leave a chalky aftertaste in your mouth. Dr. Eisenstein's recommendation: Both the enzymes and the probiotics are natural products which aid the body in digesting food thus avoiding a variety of digestive problems. If you are experiencing digestive issues (i.e., indigestion, bloating, heartburn, acid reflux, IBS, GERD), take 1-2 tablets three times a day with meals. For occasional heartburn take 1-2 tablets as needed. Chew slowly to get the maximum benefits. For chronic heartburn take one to two tablets with meals. For break-through discomfort take 1-2 tablets as needed. If you are taking PPIs (Proton Pump Inihibitors: i.e., Nexium®, Prilosec®, Prevacid®, Protonics®, Aciphex®, etc.) YOU MUST WEAN OFF THESE MEDICATIONS SLOWLY TO AVOID REBOUND HEARTBURN OR REFLUX. Even missing one day of your PPI may precipitously cause severe rebound. Start taking Betten-Aid for a few days before you begin cutting back on your pharmaceuticals. After a few days take the pharmaceutical every other day, then every third day, etc. In addition, take two Betten-Aid tablets three times a day with meals. As you are slowly cutting back on your pharmaceuticals you may need to take as many as 10 or more Betten-Aid tablets daily. Since there are no side effects to this natural treatment please don't hesitate to take additional tablets as you need them.

Tips for your digestive health and more by Rakesh Gupta, MD in Brooklyn and Queens New York. We are always looking for new suggestions and comments, please share your thoughts! You may also check out guptagastro.com for more info. Hi Im Doctor Gupta Another common question asked by my patients is concerning reflux or GERD, Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease. GERD is essential when stomach contents whether solid or liquid are pushed into the esophagus and that causes symptoms of heartburns, regurgitation, and chest discomfort. Now how does GERD happen, what is the reason why one experiences GERD? Usually the food goes through your mouth through your food pipe and passes into your stomach. At the junction of the food pipe and the stomach, is a band of fibers called lower esophageal sphincter. Which makes it like a one way passage. So food can enter into the stomach but should not be coming back out. When this sphincter is loose or incompetent, food can easily regurgitate into your food pipe causing inflammation, ulceration, nausea, food coming into your mouth. Some people complain of sore throat, difficulty in breathing and cough especially when they lie down. So these are the typical symptoms of Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease. Now what besides this can cause GERD? There are various medicines for asthma, blood pressure, and even narcotics and sedatives, which can, which can decrease, the tonicity or the strength of the lower esophageal sphincter and cause these symptoms. Diagnosis is usual made by upper endoscopy, where a flexible tube with a light at the end goes into your mouth, into your food pipe and stomach to take pictures and biopsies to examine whats going on. Whether there is any damage to the esophagus or not, and biopsies can be taken to prove if theres any changes in the lining of the esophagus, and that can very safely and very effectively diagnose the condition of GERD. There are other things which you should be aware of. GERD can cause inflammation and also sometimes changes in the lining of the stomach or esophagus which is called Barret's esophagus. And this is a premalignant condition and has to be screened reasonably frequently if you have that. So about close to ten percent of people who have GERD, will have Barrets and close to ten percent of people who have Barrets will have some sort of cancer of the esophagus. So almost close to 1% of people who have regular heartburn or GERD can end up with having problems in the esophagus. So get your testing done, if you really think you have these symptoms, another test that can be easily done is a barium swallow, which is very good, but will not be able to biopsy the esophagus to look for any changes, like Barrets . What are the other modifications, which I prescribe my patients? Typically patients who have GERD, I advise them to loose weight, don't wear tight clothing, there should be nothing tight around their abdominal girth, avoid coffee, chocolate, peppermint, alcohol, avoid spicy foods, don't lie down immediately after a big meal, if possible eat there to four hours before you lie down and elevate the head of your bed by about three to six inches with this behavior modification and the various medicines we have available, like antacids, H2 blockers like zantac, or proton pump inhibitors like prilosec, aciphex, dexalant, pantaprazole, and nexium, they can help decrease the acid in your stomach so there is no acid reflux in your food pipe causing these symptoms. So if you have any of these symptoms, like night cough, clearing of the throat all the time, sore throat, chest pains, heartburns and you feel food regurgitating up into your mouth, consult a gastroenterologist and be tested adequately and be treated then. Thank you.

Nexium 24HR® answers the question “What is Acid Reflux?” Acid reflux is the backward flow of stomach acid into the esophagus. At the entrance to the top of your stomach is a valve, which is called the lower esophageal sphincter. It’s like a door. But sometimes that door doesn’t close all the way. You know, doors just get left open from time to time. Then stomach acid, which can be the kind of acid that sneaks through an open door, rises out of the stomach, and up into your throat, which can cause that burning sensation. Ouch. That’s how you get heartburn. Learn more at the Nexium 24HR YouTube page For more information visit: nexium24hr.com

Common PPIs include: Nexium, Prevacid, Prilosec, Zegerid, Dexilant, AcipHex and Protonix. Over 15 million Americans take PPIs. However, taking PPIs cause a risk of developing severe health issues, including chronic kidney disease. A recent study showed patients who took PPIs once per day have a 15 percent increased risk of chronic kidney disease. Patients who took it twice per day were 46 percent more likely.

Nexium 24HR® answers the question “What is heartburn?” Heartburn is an uncomfortable burning sensation in your chest or throat. It occurs when stomach acid rises up out of the stomach and irritates the esophagus. This can be as irritating as fingers down a chalkboard, where those fingers are on fire and the chalkboard is actually your esophagus. Frequent heartburn is heartburn that occurs more than twice a week. Or more than four times in a fortnight if you’re British.

Long term PPI we usually don’t advice. PPI means Pantoprazole, azomeprazole, Omeprazole or Rabeprazole. Usually it is a safe medicine, but very long term like 6 months, 1 year or 2 years then people may develop some problems like vitamin B12 deficiency, vitamin D deficiency, sometimes iodine levels may come down and sometimes calcium deficiency. We should always have the risk-benefit ratio. The problem is sometimes if we don’t take PPI then they start developing food pipe ulcers. Slowly they will develop into Barett’s oesophagus; it means the skin change of the food pipe. They can develop food pipe cancers. Therefore we should always balance when we are taking PPI. If not indicated then we should not take PPI for a long time. If taken long time we should check our Vitamin B12, Vitamin D, Iodine and calcium levels and if low we should supplement that.
http://www.settlementhelpers.com/ppi-lawsuit/ The Driscoll Firm believes that drug manufacturers have an obligation to offer safe and reliable products that work as advertised. If you or a loved one have developed chronic kidney disease or kidney failure after taking Nexium, Prevacid or Prilosec, you owe it to yourself and your family to learn about your legal rights and options.

Warning on Proton Pump Inhibitors and Fracture Risk From: USFoodandDrugAdmin | August 12, 2010 FDA is cautioning healthcare professionals and patients that proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) may increase the risk of fractures of the hip, wrist and spine. The drugs' labeling will be revised to reflect these concerns. PPIs are used to reduce gastric acidity, and include Nexium (esomeprazole), Dexilant (dexlansoprazole), Prilosec (omeprazole), Zegerid (omeprazole and sodium bicarbonate), Protonix (pantoprazole), Aciphex (rabeprazole) and Prevacid (lansoprazole). The new safety information is based on FDA's review of several epidemiological studies. These studies found that patients who received high doses of the drugs or took them for a year or more had the greatest fracture risk. Since most of these patients were older than 50, the increased risk was observed mainly in this age group. Healthcare professionals prescribing proton pump inhibitors should consider the possibility of an increased fracture risk, and whether a lower dose or shorter duration of therapy might be possible. Patients at risk for osteoporosis should have their bone status managed, and should supplement their diets with adequate amounts of vitamin D and calcium. Patients taking prescription PPIs should understand the possibility of an increased fracture risk, but they should be told not to stop their medication without consulting their healthcare professional. People using over-the-counter PPIs to treat heartburn should be cautioned not to take these drugs for more than 14 consecutive days, and not to take more than three 14-day treatment courses in one year.
