Thanks for your medical advise.
I took Dexilant for almost a week and it seems that I still have acid reflux and upper back pain. Does it mean that the dosage is not enough for me?
Besides, I have hungry feeling 2-3 hours after meals. However, if I burps, I feel better. Should I take some snacks "when I feel hungry" or this "hungry feeling" is actually excess stomach acid. As you indicate, I can take Maalox if I have excess acid. However, I don;t want to rely on those non-prescription agents all the time because I am afraid that it has some side effects. What other natual methods to reduce stomach acid?
Thanks for your help.
Sorry for the additional questions... In order to reduce excessive stomach acid, should I eat "when I feel hungry" or should I take Maalox instead? It sounds like if I feel hungy and eat (besides of the regular daily meals), my pain will be relieved for a while....
If I take Dexilant for 2-3 months, can chronic gastritis, focal intestinal metaplasia and junctional glandular mucosa with mild chronic inflammation be cured? I was so depressed for a while due to my illness. It sounds like focal intestinal metaplasia will easily cause cancer...
