Answer

I'm sorry you are having such a hard time of things with regards to your reflux. While Pepto is considered to help with heartburn, it isn't generally discussed when it comes to reflux control. You can read more about the reflux meds here:

Please note that there are five pages, you may want to go through all five pages to read about the different types of medication for reflux.

You should also consult with your doctor about your reflux and what he suggests as a plan for you. One of the problems with reflux is that the symptoms can be similar for heart problems, ulcers, gall bladder issues, etc. You don't want to treat reflux if in fact it's one of the other issues. Your doctor should be able to help you get this figured out.

Best of Luck - Stephanie
