  • 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).

  • stand need to get your stomach to empty faster. chew more than usual, smaller meals...has your last snack/meal been in there 1/ 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 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.
