I have been on achiphex since 2011, and PPIs since late 1990s. After I got switched to the generic, I began having swelling in my feet and ankles and neuropathy. The generics seemed to be less effective, and the pharmacies like to switch them out frequently from one generic to another. I am very sensitive to chemical changes, but complaints fall on deaf ears. I was recently given a generic made by Mylan. I started having all kinds of side effects, too numerous to mention now, but I had changed pharmacies, so all my scripts were new brands, I have taken myself off most of my meds to see where I am at and for the most part it has helped with my focus. I am exhausted to the point of barely functioning since I ran out of the mylan version due to a pharmacist billing error. I had such horrible withdrawals, and over a month later they have lessened but the pain in my lower back is almost unbearable. I switched to prescription zantac, but as and H2 inhibitor it has only lessoned the itching that was driving me nuts, I am also on clonazepam and an opiate. I had a GI bleed from a diaphragmatic hernia with gastric volvulus in 2010, and my stomach has been migrating and I am really scared that it is in my chest again (feels like it.) I had a gastropoxy or gastroxopy, see both spellings, so I'm not sure which is accurate. I am at my wits end.
