for those of you who have both. what medicines are you on. What did not work for you?I am on previcid twice a day, domperidome as needed and levsin extended tab which I was only taking at night. I am not sure if the previcid is irritating my ibs because I always wake up with cramps and diarrhia

I am no longer taking anything for GERD. Nothing worked for me! I got worse on Previcid, Prilosec, Nexium etc. My IBS-D was worse and it did nothing for my reflux pain.I take Calcium twice a day with meals for my D and Pepto Bismol or something like that for my reflux when needed.Jleigh

I'm wondering whether or not I have GERD. I'll ask my doctor when I go in for routine blood tests (for cholesterol) in about four weeks. But maybe some of you experience this. I get a heavy, achy feeling in my chest and neck at times. Not a sharp or very hard pain, just a dull, full feeling. Sometimes I feel pressure in my chest too, and belch after swallowing food or beverages too. The belching relieves the aching some. Not sure what it is. But if it's GERD, wouldn't it bother me at night, when I'm lying down? Doesn't seem any worse then. And I don't have it every day. Sure wonder what it is.

I've been taking a blend of grape seed and other flavonoids (called Provex CV) for almost 5 years. D has been in check for about 4 years, GERD and indigestion after about a month. Mark

I am also on Prevacid and I find that it doesn't work. However, I am on Zelnorm for my IBS and I find that when I have my good days, gerd doesnt bother me. But when I have an IBS episode, my gerd is unbearable. Are IBS and gerd related to one another?

Ihave both IBS/C and GERD. I take:40mg Nexium. I don't really notice anything but my doctor says I NEED TO TAKE IT.TUMS throughout the day.Bentyl (??mg) when the nexium and tums doesn't seem to work. The Bentyl seems to keep the acid down better.Gaviscon - boy, this really helps with the acid reflux. Instant relief. Zelnorm (2mg or 6mg) I haven't found the right combination on this. It hasn't helped with my C but has helped with my bloating.Hope this helps
