You must be sleeping in lux silk bedding. I got 4 bricks undermine and it still grips like sandpaper, though I have to admit I sometimes have to climb back up half way through the night.

Why is it pointless to take gaviscon before bed ...I was told to!
Also can you explain in simple terms how these ppis work please?
I'm on 20 mg omeprazole and doc said to take 40 if I need it but how can I tell if I need it ...I think I reflux at night but don't know ...should I gave a test to tell?

It's NOT pointless to take Gav @ bed time I would . Now that said I would skip that junk like I do and go to 40mg like ur doc said u could !!!
20mg @ wake up + 20mg 1 hr before dinner.

Try both for 3 or 4 days then DROP the GAV and see !!!

Simple

TRY IT can't hurt

He did say that taking the higher dose would mean side effects so I don't want to take it unless necessary...do you think I should try and get a ph test to find out when I have reflux

pH on NHS - simple. My GP referred me and I waited around 8 weeks for the appointment.

I'd like to know when iam refluxing and just know more what's going on inside.
Regards the ppi I have some mild inflammation which started this....will ppis reduce this eventually and would taking a higher dose heal it quicker?
