- The Effect of Esomeprazole 40 mg. Daily for 7 Days on Acid Reflux and Related Arousals During Sleep in Patients w/ GERD. [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
This is the first study to evaluate the impact of antireflux treatment, not only on heartburn during sleep, but also on reflux-related conscious awakenings.
This has not been done previously and will thus provide an opportunity to assess the impact of esomeprazole on nighttime symptoms and awakenings.

Twenty GERD patients with nighttime heartburn and/or regurgitation at least 3 times a week will be invited to participate in the study. All patients will undergo upper endoscopy to determine presence or absence of esophageal inflammation(using Los Angeles criteria). All patients will be evaluated by the Demographic,Berlin,Epworth Sleepiness Scale Questionnaires, and GERD Symptom Checklist. Thereafter,patients will undergo pH testing w/ an actigraph.The morning of pH probe removal,a Sleep Quality Questionaire will be administered.
Subjects will then receive esomeprazole 40 mg. once daily(30 minutes before breakfast) for 1 week. On day 7,subjects will again undergo pH testing w/ actigraphy, and the results will be analyzed again w/ new integrative software. On the morning of pH probe removal, the sleep Quality Questionnaire will be re-administered.
