Aloe juice for reflux?

A lady at my work reccommended I give it a try. Since my GERD has gotten worse, I'm willing to try anything!

Yesterday I started the prilosec 14 day treatment package. I'm not feeling all that much better and had an episode of reflux this evening that was quite gross. Just got a burp and a mouthful of foul-tasting stuff. Ewe. I wish it would just stop already, I'm getting tired of it!

I'm thinking of going back on Nexium. I had really good luck with it last time, I almost felt like it cured me, but it was more expensive with my insurance (stupid insurance companies!).

Does anyone try OTC Maalox? The liquid stuff? Does that help AT ALL or is it just a waste of money? And Tums? I have all that stuff but I don't use it regularly enough to know whether it really works or not.

Re: Aloe juice for reflux?

I take the liquid Maalox Maximum and it helps. Right now the Dr. has me on other meds so I'm not taking the Maalox as much because of drug interactions. Try it and see if it helps you. Good luck!!!
