Off the PPI?

I've been hesitating to post this because I didn't want to jinx it. But I haven't taken Prilosec in four weeks! I didn't have any issues at all until about 1.5 weeks out when I did get a case of continuous heartburn for a few days. When I had worked my way up to 2 Pepcid's a day, I did wonder if I should just go back to the Prilosec.

But before I could get around to buying any, everything evened out. I now get heartburn without taking the PPI as much as I did when I was taking it. Which means some mild symptoms in the evening a couple of times a week. Nothing that can't be managed.

I am hopeful that not being on an acid blocker will help me absorb protein better. I guess I'll find out next month when I get my labs done.
