I have had acid reflux for over 10 years. I take Nexium twice a day, (Rx drug). Here is some advice I'll give for helping to reduce the number and severity of the attacks, (they work well for me if I use them, but they ARE NOT a cure!)
1. Do NOT eat within a few hours of going to bed.
2. Avoid spicy foods, tomato sauces, caffeine, and ESPECIALLY chocolate after eating dinner.
3.Sleep on your LEFT side, so that if the acid gets to the top of your esophagus, it will not go into your lungs. When this happens, it usually puts the acid into your right lung and, if the quantity is great enough, you can develop pneumonia.
4. Raise the head of your bed by several inches. You can buy those rubbery type "feet" to put on the foot/legs of the bed under the head.
5. If you are feeling the slightest bit quesy in your stomach before going to bed, swallow a mouthful of a liquid antacid that you can tolerate.
6. This last piece of advice comes from something I discovered on my own and never heard anyone recommend it before, until recently I read a study which said that my advice was proven effective. I wish I'd told someone years ago! I'll bet I could have made a LOT of money! If at any time you feel as if an acid reflux attack is coming on, or you have just experienced one, get several pieces of chewing gum and chew like crazy until you begin to feel better! The only reason that I can think of for its working, is that it helps clear your esophagus of gas bubbles, reducing the pressure that builds up, and it may also send a message to your stomach to start its digestive duties as well.
I didn't mean to be so long winded, but I know what it's like to live with this condition and it "ain't NO FUN!" You might also consult with a gastroenterologist about a procedure being tried now where a skin flap at the base of your esophagus is created to help strengthen the one you already have to keep it from allowing the acid to back up into your throat.All of the treatment is usually done on the inside of your body, so there is a much faster recuperation time and no surgical scar to be seen.

SOURCE: 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.

Acid reflux may cause coughing in several ways. There may be only a small amount of stomach fluid regurgitated into the esophagus, not enough to cause a burning sensation but enough to cause a cough. At other times, the fluid is mostly bile, which does not burn but stimulates cough. Sometimes such an excessive amount of stomach fluid refluxes that it spills over into the lungs, causing persistent cough and potentially leading to pneumonia or bronchitis. Cough may also be caused by heartburn medications. Private gastroenterologist London

SOURCE: 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.

(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.
