Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
are you still there?
My favorite OTC medications are
maalox or mylanta for acute pain and burning
and pepcid or zantac to prevent the burning (doesn't work right away as the maalox or mylanta)
if that doesn't work, you can substitute prilosec for pepcid or zantac
If that still doesn't work, you need to see your doctor- or unless you have black or bloody stool, fever, etc
eat a bland diet- no spicy food, alcohol, citric food, peppermint, caffeine, tomatoes
Also don't eat less than 2 hours prior to going to sleep :-)
I hope that this helped
please leave positive feedback if it did :-)
