Advice & Tips: Taking this medication has helped me GREATLY! Before taking this medication I could not keep food in me. I would either throw it up or 20-30 minutes later pooping it out. It has caused the cramps in my stomach and intestinal tracks to ease and mostly stop. There are still certain foods that will cause the pain, but as long as I don't eat those foods I do really well. I found myself actually enjoying food again. It has been a great life changing thing for me. Also my hands don't swell as bad and even the "tumor" like things on my fingers are slowly going away. Getting diagnosed with GERD and being put on this medication has impacted my life greatly!
