Hi Fam,

I do suffer from severe reflux - and take medication for it - and also eat a modified diet for it - I have given up chocolate, peppermint, onions, tomato's, soda, etc. - it has helped a bit.

The Toprol I was on also caused heartburn. I really do not want to be on another medication that causes heartburn because I am still working HARD to get my GERD back under control after a course of Prednisone.

He said that we could try a diuretic? Just not sure - I wish I could get it down without medication as I HATE the side effects. I am trying hard - the next step is to add consistent exercise and see if that helps.

Thanks for the advice and information.

Have a great day!
