Suffering Heartburn

Re: Suffering Heartburn

You could start by taking something like Tums or Gaviscon 30 minutes before bed. If that doesn't work you might try Zantac or Tagamet (both of which are available as generics without a prescription).

It may also help to take them before dinner and to avoid eating anything for 3 hours before you lay down.

Re: Suffering Heartburn

MAke sure you sleep at an angle. your head being higher than your feet.

I had a permanent sore throat from night time acid reflux.

Mine is purely my weight. When im thinner i get nothing, when im overweight like i am now, im plagued with it.

If you are overweight, losing some will help immensly.
