  • Did you try drinking milk and eating bread? Pepto or tumbs?

  • UGH... I know what you mean. I'm getting SO sick of the heartburn. I stopped drinking pepsi and coke, and that helped a tiny bit. I switched to Sprite, 7up, etc. That worked for a little bit. Then it came back. I had tea today, and I still got heartburn. IDK what's causing it. Maybe it's just the caffeine itself...? IDK...

  • Sleep at an incline... that will help the acids stay down some. Call the Dr., see if there is somethine stronger than tums.

  • My doctor said zantac 75 is a safe class b drug. I took it with my first and just started taking it again.
