Weaning off Nexium or similar...please read
I understand that this a not a drug that has to be weaned off, but it seems logical that any unnatural chemicals entered in your body should be weened off in some way somehow. So...
I'm currently doing 1 in the morning, and then waiting an hour before I eat breakfast. I will do this for the 8-12 weeks that I have seem mentioned so frequently throughout the web.
Would it be better to:
A.) Have 1 nexium a day, then becomes 4/week, then 2/week until I'm no longer using it?
B.) As I begin to feel more confident with my old eating lifestyle, switch slowly from 40mg/day to 20mg/day (and even further down the road, do A but with these 20 mg pills)?
Also, C, would it be counter productive at this point (I've been taking for 1 month exactly) to begin taking it daily and only waiting 30 min. before I eat breakfast? Would this set me backwards, or is it okay because it'll show that I'm no longer needing to wait as long to get food in my system?
P.S.- I know that none of you are probably doctors, but most of you are probably have more experience taking these meds than me, so please try to formulate an opinion for your sake and mine. Thank You very much for reading.
