Does it take a while for these medications to work enough for me to notice a difference?
I have researched GERD on the internet, and see that some people need long
drug intervention - especially those, like myself, who have the hernia & LES problem. It says that my symptoms will return if drug therapy is discontinued.
So, I either take drugs for the rest of my life, or have surgery to correct the mechanical problem(s). Personally, I think both options stink!
