    THANK YOU FOR YOUR INPUT, JUST STARTED ON LOSEC, PANTOLOC DID NOT HELP MUCH, ALSO AS A POINT OF INTEREST, THE ONLY THING i TAKE FOR FIBRO IS 0.5 OF ATIVAN ONCE A DAY WHEN THE PAIN GETS REALLY BAD, HOWEVER i JUST READ ON A SITE THAT ANY BENZO MAKES REFLUX WORST AS IT IS A MUSCLE RELAXANT, HENCE ALLOWING THE STOMACH MUSCLES TO RELAX ALSO AND CAUSING MORE ACID TO ENTER THE ESAPHOGUS, PLEASE FORGIVE THE SPELLING, fRENCH IS MY LANGUAGE, ANYHOW i AM CURIOUS TO GET YOUR INPUT ON BENZO IF YOU ARE FAMILIAR, CAN'T WIN , IT IS THE ONLY THING THAT GIVES MY MUSCLES SOME RELIEF, THANK'S AGAIN AND HOPE THE NIXIUM WORKS FOR YOU , READ ONCE THAT NEXIUM IS JUST ANOTHER NAME FOR LOSEC, MAYBE! HUG BACK TO YOU, MICHE

    Yes, I take Xanax .5 mg. 3 x a day and have for 9 years. I never thought about the fact that it was causing my muscles to relax and could be causing more problems. I really need the Xanax for my FMS.

    You can view my profile and see what meds I take for FMS.

    You didn't fill out your profile so I didn't know where you live, but you said you speak French, so I assume you are in France, or Canada.

    From what I read about Nexium, it takes 4 to 8 weeks, so I have a long way to go to see if it will work for me or not. It is helping, but I'm not feeling "normal" yet in my esophagus and symptoms. I still have to be very careful.

    Hugs,
    Faye
