Background: Nighttime acid reflux that influences refractory symptoms is strongly associated with sleep disturbances. The aim of this study was to examine the associations between sleep disturbances and refractory gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) symptoms in patients receiving once daily proton pump inhibitors (PPI) and the efficacy of twice-daily rabeprazole treatment. Method: In a multicenter survey, 433 GERD patients receiving once-daily PPI treatment completed a self-report questionnaire that included the Frequency Scale for the Symptoms of GERD (FSSG) and questions about sleep disturbances. Study cases were defined as patients with an FSSG score ≥8. Of the 222 study cases, 106 individuals received rabeprazole 10 mg twice daily for 4-8 weeks. Results: Of the 433 subjects, 222 patients revealed FSSG scores of ≥8. Use of a half dose of PPI was associated with such cases. PPI-refractory symptoms were found in 46% of patients with standard-dose PPI treatment. Nighttime symptoms (OR = 2.56), daytime sleepiness (OR = 1.64), and poorer sleep quality (OR = 1.67) were significantly associated with refractory GERD symptoms. Twice-daily rabeprazole treatment significantly improved FSSG scores and sleep disturbances. Conclusion: About half of the GERD patients receiving once-daily standard-dose PPI treatment had refractory GERD symptoms. Sleep disturbances were significantly associated with refractory GERD symptoms. Twice-daily rabeprazole treatment was effective in such cases.
