Zantac works pretty good, it's not the cheapest on the market. If you are suffering heartburn frequently you should see your doctor who will prescribe something that gives longer lasting relief .

Using Tums while pregnant

Studies have shown that nearly 80% of all pregnant women experience heart burn or acid reflux at one point during their pregnancies. Nearly 60% of women report fighting a constant battle with heart burn or acid reflux throughout their entire pregnancies.
Many of these women suffer quietly and many of them take Tums or other antacids to ease the discomfort.
Because of increased blood production during pregnancy, many women develop an iron deficiency. Anemia can cause exhaustion in the mother and problems such as premature birth in the fetus. Anemia is usually treated with an iron supplement, taken at bed time. Doctors recommend that iron be taken at bedtime because consumption of the supplement along with dairy products can render it ineffective.
Ironically, women also tend to suffer discomfort from heart burn and acid reflux when lying down in bed at night.
What doctors don't often tell women is that taking many antacid tablets can also render iron ineffective.
Therefore, it is particularly important to curb your Tums intake at night so that the iron supplement you take can actually be effective.
Studies have shown that in order to get rid of indigestion problems while making sure your iron supplement is effective, you should not take more than 6 Tums a day and to avoid taking them for at leas two hours before and after taking your iron supplement.

Treatment of acid reflux?

L-glutamine powder. L-glutamine is an amino acid. A teaspoon of L-glutamine powder in four ounces of water takenwith each meal can help heal gastritis and even stomach ulcers. Do a search for research on this supplement if you want to find the studies. I know several people who were able successfully to wean themselves off Prilosec (which can lead to osteoporosis and other problems) by using this supplement. It's a naturally occurring substance--it's already in your body. After your esophageal epithelium heals you can stop taking glutamine and restart for short periods if the reflux recurs.

How to treat acid reflux

There are a number of ways to treat acid reflux. First, you should be examined by a doctor to find the cause of your acid reflux, which is usually done by an Endoscopy and/or a study with a bravo capsule. However, if you want to treat it with over the counter remedies, here are a few things that can help.

Start out with the light acid reducers such as Cimetidine, and liquids such as Gaviscon, Mylanta, or liquid Rolaids. Some people find that chewables work better for them such as Rolaids.

If you still have acid reflux after using the light acid reducers, then you will want to try some of the "big boys" in the acid reducer category. Finding the right one is difficult, as it's different for everyone. Most people have good luck with a course of Prilosec OTC while others find little effect and prefer to try Zantac. In our household my significant other uses Prilosec OTC and I use Zegerid, I have worse acid reflux problems than he does including GERD, Esophagitis, and a Hiatal Hernia while he just has reflux and stomach ulcers.

If you've tried everything mentioned here, and still have heartburn, it's definitely time to see a doctor, if you haven't done so already. Prescription medications such as Sucralafate can help heal your stomach and solve problems such as eroded stomach lining often caused by acid reflux.

Good luck to you!

Good acid reflux tablet

Try Zegerid OTC, I've tried tums, Zantac, Prevacid, pepsid, Nexium, and Aciphex. Spoke to my GI on the 3rd, he gave me samples, and it worked! I had CONSTANT pain for 9 days straight and this is correcting it so far. I'm not a dr. Or nurse, so you may want to check with your physician to make sure there are no drug interactions. GoodLuck

Acid reflux

yes, but for only 6 months at a time. Issues could be bigger than just reflux, (GERD, hiatal hernia, etc). Works by limiting protein in stomach. Issues, can be, with long term use, low levels or calcium, vitamin D, magnesium.
Dont take more than needed, can make issue worse if you take too much. This due to, you stomach needing juices to digest food, block too much of it and your body will go into over drive, and make some more. Not like a antacid, take before meals.
has worked great for me, but I have a hiatal hernia.
if you still have issues, get checkout.
good luck

My doctor thinks acid reflux might be causing my cough. How does that work?

Acid reflux (also known as GERD) is when your stomach juice comes up your esophagus and irritate your throat, causing you to cough. You don't need to have heartburn to show that you are suffering from GERD. Sometimes the only symptom is the cough.
