  • Effectiveness
    None (for acid reflux)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Never taken as prescribed
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Advice & Tips: It just didn't work for me, I still had nausea and diarrhea. My Gastroenterologist changed me over to Dexilant to see if that helps. I go for an ECG 8/6 to see what's up with my stomach.
Cost: $50-99 monthly

  • Effectiveness
    None (for acid reflux)
  • Side effects
    Moderate
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 40 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I can not say that I actually had 'side effects' from this drug but it did not help me at all with the Barretts Esophagus, I actually got worse while taking this, the pain and nausea came back with a vengence. We are now trying to get my insurance to allow the protonex in the formulary. I never had any problems when I was on the protonex which eliminated the nausea, gas & pain.
Cost: < $25 monthly
