Antacids like TUMS and Maalox should be safe for you to use

If your doctor is OK with it you could try either Zantac or Pepcid AC but you should consult him before you try those

Please let me know if you need any more information

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
