'Gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD, is a digestive disorder that affects the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), the ring of muscle between the esophagus and stomach. Many people, including pregnant women, suffer from heartburn or acid indigestion caused by GERD

Any experience with PPI and pregnancy?

Any experience with PPI and pregnancy? I can't handle without it, pain is to strong.

Not personally but have seen people say that it's safe. I suggest you always talk to your doctor about options.

Penny Willow
Actually I believe pregnant women are not supposed to take PPI’s.

Tierra M. Nauman
That's just what I remember seeing in other groups. I suggest always talking to your doctor first though.

Penny Willow
Speak to your doctor. I don’t think PPI’s are allowed during pregnancy but Ranitidine might be ok. You need to control your reflux with diet and lifestyle and antacids.

Maria Anda
I talked to my doctor about this today and he said no ppi. Only zantac.

Mai Sharaf
I used to take zantac when I was pregnant, my dr prescribed it for me as the gerd was killing me through pregnancy. And I use to take this antacid as well it really helped a lot.

They can prescribe you gaviscon.

Lauren Watson
I was prescribed lanzaprosole through my pregnancies x.

Nikkie Grimshaw
I tried not to take during the first trimester but gave in at 10 weeks. My GP prescribed Omeprazole which I took for the rest of the pregnancy with no issues. I did try s lower dose and taking alternative days to find the lowest dose that kept my symptoms at bay. X

Nikki Davidson-Lloyd
The only thing I could use during pregnancy was ranitidine/zantac prescribed from gp and lots of anti acid melt in mouth tabs hope you find releif xxx.

Penny Willow
Apparently omeprazole is the only recommended PPI for use in pregnancy - as a last resort if antacids and ranitidine (or other H2 Blockers don’t work). It’s the one which has been researched the most for use during pregnancy.

I took prevacid my whole pregnancy everything was fine. Ask your doctor.
