    This med.has been very successful in reducing reflux symptoms. However, number one, it's very expensive (even with insurance and discount coupon). I've been using samples. Two, I completely lost my sense of taste using this. When I switched back to Nexium, my sense of taste is slowly returning.

    I was not advised that taking this medication for a long period of time would leave me with persistant spasms in my left shoulder and 3 visits to the ER before they figured out that I had a magnisum deficiency. I also had an ankle fracture while on this medication which also a side effect on long term use. Yes it works great but after 4 years I am paying the price.

I have 10 days left to go as i ... Show Full Comment
