For GERD: “My doctor first suggested pantoprazole for my acid reflux, which I’ve used in the past. But I wanted to try something a little more gentle this time. I was pleasantly surprised that this worked perfectly. I started with the maximum dose for a few weeks, then slowly weaned off it completely over a few months.”

For Indigestion: “Like many of the Users on this site, I have found that when CVS required me to use this pill manufactured by Aurobindo Pharma Limited from my prior manufacturer used by Rite Aid (little brown discs) that the Aurobindo product does NOT work, even in the 40 mg pill (designed in a white square with rounded edges with “CC” on one side and “61” on the other side.It is my opinion that this product is a phony and should be avoided”

For GERD: “It doesn’t do a darn thing for me. I don’t even know why I bother taking it. I have to sleep sitting up so that I don’t throw up all night from GERD. I have tried all of the major drugs to try to control my condition, but none of them work. Very discouraging. The only thing that seems to help even a little bit is keeping my stomach full at all times (at least when I throw up, it’s not bile or acid). I’ve gained almost 60 pounds this last year as a result of it, though.”

For Urticaria: “While I found this awesome and it got rid of my hives, I experienced a rare side effect it seems. I totally lost my ability to control my bladder. It has become so embarrassing, even though no one sees or knows about it…. kinda personal, ya know. I cannot go anywhere with out worrying about my bladder and sometimes I have left the store as my bladder gives me NO warning and then its a matter of how fast I can get to my car before anyone notices that I wet myself. It’s horrible. I have stop taking this and will gladly suffer from the hives that have been randomly occurring since I was a teen. I’m in the 40 – 50 age.”
