lmbutare Posted September 13, 2007 Report Share Posted September 13, 2007 I have been on protonix for reflux problems for almost 2 years, and it seems like it can't be the greatest idea in the world to be on it for that long. I'm wondering if anyone has been able to get off of drugs after long term use. I tried to reduce my dose, but my reflux returns so badly that I can't sleep or eat much. Does anyone have any suggestions on what to do? I'm also concerned b/c I have pretty bad iron deficiency anemia and it's possible that these drugs are adding to my iron absorption problems since I'm on a double dose ( but who knows). I'm trying to take oral iron supplements and it's just compounding all of my GI/digestion issues. I feel like no matter what I do I can't find a way to get my diet and digestion under control!! Any help would be greatly appreciated! Lauren Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
