I take protonix. However, as the above poster mentioned, you should definitely see a doc first. My protonix dose had been halved by my doctor just prior to starting to vape again, and looking back, that's the time that correlates with the first onset of discomfort. Vaping made it more obvious though. I did see a doc just a few days ago and they checked my breath bags thoroughly and agree that the dose was dropped too soon. I've spent 25 years eating chili peppers as snacks and dumping hot sauce on everything (even salads)... so I think my docs realize that its not going to heal up as quick as they thought. Seriously see your doc though.
