I am grateful for finally getting the auth from the insurance company so I can go back on the Protonix so I can again take my full dose of Motrin. It's been a painful few weeks while I did the mandatory step-down with Zantac. Frankly, I would have preferred the Zantac to work, it is less expensive and Protonix brings my bowels to a virtual halt. However, I couldn't take both doses of Motrin w/o stomach pain that had me chugging Gaviscon on the Zantac. So there ya are. In about 2 weeks I should back up to snuff mobility wise and near pain free. Go me!
