Have taken this 1/dy at bedtime 200 mg for two years now, with GE consult, in-lieu of Nexium 40mg for GERD and Barretts. Have noted tingling and numbness in feet and significant ED arising. Otherwise it reduced acid just fine. Use Tum's during the day.

Started taking (2 tabs of 400 mg)this 2-3 mos ago after going thru several other similar meds including Zegerid, Prilosec, Nexium, Famitodine. Works best of them all for 4-5 hours after hs, then I take some calcium carb supplements. Also use raised pillow, eat early, watch what I eat, etc.
