Heart burn

I have heartburn all day long. What are somethings you use to get rid of it and not temporary relief, something I can take that will last a couple hours. I forget what my doc said and I don't go back to him until wednesday.
(I know I can call but I don't wanna bother them with a dumb question that you ladies can help me with)

  • Tums would help me, until it became fruity flavored heartburn. At that point I was put on a medication: Protonix. It has worked wonders for me!

  • i took one of my husbands heartburn pills cause i thought i was gonna die. But you could always ask the pharmicists at cvs or walgreens if you dont feel like calling you DR. thats what i usually do and they are very helpful
