This is particularly true in patients with laryngeal symptoms, who do not appear to respond to surgery if they have failed PPI. In my practice I would routinely perform impedance/pH testing in this patient for the following reasons. If continued acid reflux is demonstrated, antisecretory therapy can be changed, reassessed, or increased. Surgery can be considered, though I rarely do this until after a new/different medical therapy trial. If non-acid reflux is found associated with symptoms, the patient can be offered an explanation for continued symptoms and possible therapy.

I do not advocate extending the trial beyond 4 weeks, nor do I typically increase the dose empirically in treating typical symptoms unless I have a clear (greater than 50%) progressive improvement. Although 53 54 Question 14 switching drugs, changing dose timing to before the evening meal, adding an H2 blocker all have their support, I consider these part of long-term management or maintenance and not part of a therapeutic trial. So, if I am not happy with the response at 4 weeks, I would do a work up.

Several lines of evidence suggest a different approach to atypical (non-heartburn) presentations. A lower incremental response to once-daily therapy has been observed for all extraesophageal symptoms and many feel are the most difficult. It is in this group that I use the longest “trial,” 8 to 12 weeks of twice-daily proton pump inhibitor. This is the best compromise for most patients in my clinical experience. A more rapid response is gratifying and absolutely no improvement after 4 to 8 weeks suggests a low likelihood of GERD in my experience; but again, little harm will come to the patient—either physical or emotional—by waiting and in my experience reduces and focuses diagnostic testing.
