Thumbs down Acid reflux

I still don't feel great but I'm having horrible acid reflux.

Does anyone know if we can take prilosec, or prevacid?

I will call my dr tomorrow and ask but I may have to go get some like now... I am dying! I have already eaten 6 Tums. Its done nothing!

I had it this bad with Maddie. I would eat a half a bottle of tums a day I swear.

Have you tried Maalox? My sis-in-law (a pharmacy tech) said we can take that....it seems to help me a lot, though it's pretty temporary

No. I read we can take Zantac. I need something long lasting.

You can take prilosec I took zegrid which is prilosec and sodium bicarbonate to help you absorb the prilosec I had reflux bad this last time.

Everything I read said you can take Zantac. I went and got a small pack tonight. I will call my dr asap tomorrow just to double check that it's safe.
This week has been so rough on me. I pray it only gets better.

You can definitely take Zantac. I already have my prescription for 300mg! I had to take it with DS and DD because I get it soooo bad. Hope you can get some relief!
