So after being on Soylent 1.5 for 3+ weeks now, I decided to go off my Prilosec for GERD last Sunday and voila! GERD is gone!
Typically, when one goes off of a proton pump inhibitor, the body increases stomach acid production to catch up for lost time, but I’ve yet to even have a bad burp at this point. In the past before Soylent, if I went off Prilosec for even a day, I had bad acid reflux.
Not that the Prilosec prescription was expensive ($10/90 day supply) but the unknowns of long term PPI usage (I’ve been on it for 15 years now) are still out there.
