I had GERD 3 years ago, was treated with Prilosec and carafate, and it went away. Unfortunately it just came back, and I am in a lot of pain. My GP put me on Prilosec. I have been on it for 4 weeks now, and I was doing really well, and then about 3 days ago it seemed like it just stopped working, and my symptoms came back. I was just sent for an H. Pylori breath test, and was put on carafate along with the Prilosec. My question is, "has anyone had symptoms abate, only to have them return while on treatment?" Thank you!
