  • Zantac worked great for me. I had horrible heartburn the whole time I was pregnant. I could take one of these and my heartburn would disappear!!

  • I have heartburn bad sometimes. Tums usually helps. Also drinking a cold glass of milk slowly helps me.

  • i have heartburn like no tomorrow. the only thing my dr said that is safe to take is tums or rolaids they work okand like the above post drinking a cold glass of milk helps to. Try not laying down right after you eat that might help. Id stay away from other antacids though they arnt known for sure if they are safe to take or not.

  • I have heartburn so bad with this pregnancy that I have to sleep sitting up and I have since I was about 5 months pregnant. It really sucks but the only thing that really helped me was Mylanta that is what my doc to me to use if tums quit working and they did..maybe you could ask your ob what he would recommend. I am going to have to see if I can take something a little stronger because my heartburn is starting to get worse...this might be tmi but i am starting to get it so bad that I am throwing up nothing but stomach contents..yuck!

  • I take Prilosec OTC everyday which is what my dr. recommended. I now have no heartburn whatsoever.(I'm 27 weeks)

  • I did too, zantac, and tums, and the saying is true, if you have lots of heartburn your baby will have lots of hair. Mine did, she even had highlights, very cool.
