  • You need to see your doctor. And, perhaps, figure out the rules of caps vs. lower case letters because......I keep reading this like a bad haiku.

  • how much Zantac? How many MG per day?
    Avoid colas,citrus,tomatoes,and if you drink or smoke,stop
    And see a doc. Sounds like GERD

  • See your doctor, who may put you on a prescription for acid reflux. You might need an endoscopy, which is when you get a camera and a light in a tube down your throat to check for ulcers in your esophagus and stomach.

  • My husband has it (also called GERD). He says that there is a difference in the brands and he tends to prefer Prilosec. There are also certain foods you should avoid. Also, you can try taking the medication 1 hour before you eat so that it starts to work faster.

  • P.S. Also eating yogurt daily helps promote digestive health. There are other probiotic foods as well.
