Common Questions and Answers about Aciphex vs protonix

aciphex

As an additional fyi, there are quite a few studies showing Nexium's superiority within acid control and the healing of erosive esophagitis vs. Protonix, Prevacid, and Aciphex (see Miner, Castell, Lauritsen, Lind).. in fact, Protonix proves to be the LEAST effective in these arenas. Nexium is not only an appropriate choice for someone with Barret's, but the BEST choice and the least expensive option for the patient above.
omeprazole (Prilosec), lansoprazole (Prevacid), rabeprazole (Aciphex), pantoprazole (Protonix), esomeprazole (Nexium), and Zegarid, a rapid release form of omeprazole. What physician's often overlook and the package inserts on these drugs usually omits are several subtle, yet important side effects including joint, muscle and/or leg pains. The swelling and pain in my hands has greatly reduced since I quit taking Prilosec about a week ago. The muscle jerking, not so much.
I do not have severe acid reflux however, as I suspected I do have abnormal levels of acid in my throat. I have tried Pevacid, Prilosec and Protonix and none of those helped. If this doesn't help, I am told there probably is nothing that can be done. That leads me to this...what is the success rate of Nexium vs the others and will it interfere with any natural supplements that I am already taking? I was also told that it is possible that i do have a floating hiatal hernia.
I only had this occasionally on Protonix, but have had it last three days on Nexium? Should I switch back to Protonix? Try Aciphex? Frustrated a bit that symptoms seem to stick around forever.

I am a 31 year old female with a structurally normal heart (EKG, ECHO, CT chest and abdomen, and all labwork have been normal) that has been having runs of SVT vs. A-fib vs. A-tach every time I eat. It occurs with swallowing (food, and some beverages, but not with just swallowing air). I had 18 episodes during a 24 hour holter monitor, with rates between 180-200 bpm. These are often accompanied by lightheadededness.
doctor found a narrowed esophagus (which he stretched), and evidence of acid reflux. I was given Aciphex, which completely eliminated all digestive symptoms. I have suffered from migraines for nearly 20 years. I saw a rheumatologist about 10 years ago for muscle/joint pain. He put me on Celebrex, which I have taken (with great success) for a decade. I also suffer from depression, for which I take Wellbutrin XL, again, with great success.
