There are several things you can do to help the acid reflux. Here are some tips.
Your doctor prescribed Prilosec (Omeprazole ) medication for GERD, but you can also read about other medications here in the drugs database.
Take care and stay in touch and let us know how you are doing!Vicki M
Our miracle drug is apple cider vinegar. Take two tablespoons before a big meal and also before bedtime mixed with water. The capsules work just as well as the actual vinegar.
Thank you for your question. From what you've said, I don't know exactly what you're looking for. I don't know if you've tried anything else, or even if you're treating yourself (as opposed to a child or spouse). I can still try to give you some useful information. Prilosec is an over-the-counter Proton Pump Inhibitor (PPI). It is the only PPI availabe over the counter, but there are several more available with a prescription (Nexium, Protonix, Aciphex, and Prevacid). There is another class of medications that is available over the counter, called H2 Blockers. These include antacids such as Tums and Rolaids, and can be used to treat acid reflux. I would recommend speaking with a doctor or pharmacist so that you can get better information about your particular situation. I hope this helps!
