Discussions that mention zantac

Acid Reflux / GERD board

I have a very nice co-worker (whom I hardly ever see now) whom I run into maybe once a year. I know he has a tendency toward "alternative" aids.

So, when I whined about my reflux, he suggested aloe vera juice sipping. Said it apparently healed up his esophagitis and doesn't hurt anything.

I am taking Nexium as well as Zantac, and also now taking Reglan (I have just found out I have gastroparesis).

Has anyone heard of using aloe vera for reflux? I hardly hear mention of it here. Also wondering if it has any reaction with any of the drugs I'm taking?
