Taken 5 days - just now woke up with acid reflux - can't lay down. I'm stopping th ... Show Full Comment

There are too many choices on the market that do not have such severe side effects that can be taken under a doctors care. I wish the manufacturers of these drugs would look at them as if they themselves were going to hav ... Show Full Comment
