I have never heard of meds for a hiatal hernia. My grandmother had one and changed her diet (less bready stuff, large quantities of drier meat, etc - the bulkier foods that don't go down as easy). My MIL has one had to have surgery as well as change her diet a bit, mainly eating less in one sitting. If your meds aren't working it's time to call your doc. ... You could try taking yourself down to a soft-foods, or full-liquid, diet - any liquids plus things like ice cream, pudding, jelly, soups that don't have chunks, etc.
