What should you do if you have heartburn?

Postby Scepcop » 28 Oct 2009, 00:41

I've been having heartburn the past few weeks. Sometimes I'd wake up in the middle of the night with the burning sensation just below my throat area. I was told I had acid reflex before in Taiwan when they did an endoscopy exam on me (where they ram that scope down your throat). It's quite annoying.

Is there a cure for this? Or do you just have to keep taking Nexum and Tums everyday? I do have some Nexum, and I think I read that you're supposed to take it twice a day half an hour before meals. But the articles I saw online sometimes said different things.

Any of you have heartburn too? If so, what treatment do you use for it?

Heartburn? Zantac 150. Works like a charm.

I had to take it for like 2 straight weeks so that the lining of my stomach could heal. Now when I get the first twinge of heartburn, back on the Zantac for 3 days and I'm fine for months.
