  • I would personally try to get through it without using any OTC drugs. This is just my personal choice but if you are really needing something then I would follow Dr's advice. Maybe contact a natural health person and see what they suggest. They have some interesting natural remedies that include no drugs.

  • I have acid reflex disease so nothing works but prilosec i have tried everything you could imagine in the last 3 years and prilosec is the one and only thing that works. I stopped taking it when i found out i was pregnant and was really sick because of all the acid in my stomach i ended up loosing 20lbs i thought it was morning sickness all day but after she told me i could take my prilosec it all went away and i could eat again.
