  • Chug a glass of cold white milk. Avoid coffee and chocolate since both make it worse (for me any way, I'm assuming for others too).

  • Zantac 75 was the only thing. Anything with water in it gave me heartburn

  • stand up...you need to get your stomach to empty faster. chew more than usual, smaller meals...has your last snack/meal been in there 1/2hr...you might try and "wash" the stomach with a big glass of water to help dump the meal and empty the stomach.

    same with pills that you want to "wash out" of the stomach quickly...take them on a empty stomach with a ton of water...lay down with LEFT side up and right side down...the stomach is pointing down and usually will dump the pills out whole with the water...you can feel it sometimes~

    I have two Gtube kids and have to check residual before I can put anymore food in....I can get a meal to wash out with 8oz of water....and I can see stomach bleeding with meds (especially motrin) and will try and get the stomach to push meds out in 10 mins to prevent bleeding.
