My opinion: use OTC medicines if you have a problem after eating.

Stick with your regular PPI dose and have a few Gaviscon or Rennie to hand to use afterwards if required.

Is 60mg Lans a huge dose? I thought it was the equivalent to 40mg esomeprazole, which is a standard dose.

60mg lan is BUT not to 1000lb man .U have to look @ patient here they can start u out with 15mg and go up .That's why I always ask how big ur HH . Doc TOAD me if ur 4 or 5cm u need 60mg and hope it works . In my case 30 to 45mg is nothing barretts would come in short time .Look @ Chris's chart to compare doses.

i was on 60 mg . lansorazole for the,first 6 weeks then it was changed,to 30mg. i think the higher dose was because i had inflamation in stomach and Duodem(probably spelt wrong ).
