This medicine has not worked for me .In fact, it made me feel worse as a side effect is diarrhea. The size of the pill is far too big also. I would not recommend.

Zegerid has helped me so much. I had daily indigestion before I started taking it. Since I started taking one every morning, I am completely symptom free. It comes right back though, if I forget to take it. I have been taking it for almost a year with no side effects.

Replaced Zantac...works like a champ. No heartburn or indigestion, and no obvious side effects. Been using it for 2 years now.

Comment:
It's a lousy drug for making money. It came on the market at the same time that Prevacid magically disappeared off the shelves. Zegerid made my heartburn worsen and is not effective. The size of the pill is also hard to swallow.
