Gerd medication and treatment
To be honest, the best person to ask would be your GP/doctor. But it's possible your GERD could be causing damage to your throat/esophagus. (this isn't good for your teeth/throat at all).
Antacids, such as Maalox, Mylanta, Gelusil, Rolaids and Tums, may provide quick relief, for short term problems. It's non-prescription, quite easy to purchase from the pharmacy.
to reduce stomach acid production: (these are H-2-receptor blockers-H2 Blockers reduce acid production by blocking signals that tell the stomach to make acid) these medications include cimetidine (Tagamet HB), famotidine (Pepcid AC), nizatidine (Axid AR) or ranitidine (Zantac 25, Zantac 75, Zantac 150). H-2-receptor blockers don't act as quickly as antacids, but they provide longer relief.
Proton pump inhibitors block acid production and allow time for damaged esophageal/throat tissue to heal. Over-the-counter proton pump inhibitors include lansoprazole (Prevacid 24 HR) and omeprazole (Prilosec OTC).
However, if you want a proper diagnosis, it's always best to see your doctor. :)
