Who's pregnant and having horrible reflux?

I'm pretty much on week 20 of extreme acid reflux. I has hyperemesis for the first 14 weeks though. I'm 25 weeks now. I tried everything, including Nexium and the OTC's. I also changed my diet. Still, the only med that works for me is Pepcid Complete. What are you taking and how's it working for you?

  • I used papaya enzyme from Whole Foods. Worked like a charm. (But of course ask your doc first)

  • I suffered too, and the only thing that worked for me was Prilosec. It was a LIFESAVER!!! With my first 3 I had really bad heartburn, but this was nothing like that!! I was soooo sick :( After the first day of Prilosec, I felt 1 million times better!
