I have tried Tums and it is not working to get rid of the heartburn. Is there anything else I can try?
In addition to TUMS there are preventive things you can do such as eating smaller portions more often, losing weight, not eating close to bed time, etc. However, if you continue to have issues it's time to see your doctor for a thorough evaluation and treatment plan. There are plenty of other medication options that you may want to explore with your doctor once you are definitively diagnosed.
