|Rating||Reason||Side Effects||Comments||Sex||Age||Time Taken |
|3||GERD||Joint and muscle pain in my hands, arms and knees which was worse the first few days but has subsided some. I also feel weak and have less energy. Some nausea, headaches and a spaced-out feeling which seems to be worse in the mornings but persists throughout the day. My appetite has been unaffected. I feel more bloated after eating than usual so I'm trying to eat smaller meals.||This has definitely helped with the GERD. I'm taking 40mg 1x daily but I may cut it back to every other day or reduce the dosage to 20mg. I'm not sure the side effects are worth it.||M||45||7 days |

|4||GERD||The side effects have subsided although I still feel a slight amount of joint pain but nothing like those first few days. Occasional dizzy feeling but again it's minimal.||My reflux has improved considerably partly because I've improved my eating habits but I know the drug has helped a lot too. I'm sleeping better and no more heartburn. I still feel bloated initially if I eat too much but I'm considering this a positive (I'm not overeating as often) I'm changing my rating from a 3 to a 4 because of all this.||M||45||14 days |
