Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

Ask Your Own Medical Question

how old are you?

it sounds like you have too much stomach acid

you need to use stomach acid reducing medications to start to reduce your stomach acid

you need to take prilosec 20mg 30-60min before dinner and also take zantac 150mg during breakfast

and see a doctor, you may need stronger prescription anti acid medications like 40mg of nexium or protonix

I take Ranitidine 150 MG, one tab by month twice a day. Plus sometimes I need a Tums, but the sour stomach keeps coming back. The other meds didn't seem to help.

you need more than ranitidine

you may need omeprazole 40mg a day

you need to be tested for H Pylori bacteria in your stomach which can worsen stomach acid

you may need to avoid certain foods like tomato sauces, fried foods, spicy foods, alcohol.

you can increase to ranitidine 150mg twice a day for now

but you need to see a doctor.

I believe so. I was layed off from work
2/7 and my insurance ended 2/28. I really need to see a doctor.So for now if I took 2 pills 300mg in the morning and 2 pills 300mg before bedtime would that over dose me.

in rare cases of severe stomach acid issues ranitidine is prescribed 150mg 4 times a day for erosive esophagitis when stomach acid is severe

this is a prescription level of dose and we can not ok that here online

it is up to you to take that risk

but you need to get your stomach acid level down

you may need to see a doctor at a free health clinic

or university medical center

carrot juices and other fruit juices may be too acidic for your stomach right now

carrot juice can also cause some diarrhea or loose stools in some patients.

I would avoid these juices for now until you are able to get your stomach acid into better control.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
