Hello-I have had GERD for 4 years now and have had an endoscopy which showed inflammation but otherwise normal. I am on an PPI (dexilant) which seems to not be working as well as when i started it q few months ago. My GI dog said to increase my dose to twide daily and add a zantac, which i am doing. Anxiety has always been either a reason or makes my symptoms worse so I al also starting effexor to see if that helps. Has anyone tried this? I would appreciate any info! i am so tired of being uncomfortable--thanks!
