Heartburn :puke:

I've been having really bad heartburn for the last two days. Rolaids isn't cutting it. Any suggestions?

Tums works for me... but then I can't drink anything afterwards or the heartburn is right back.

Re: Heartburn :puke:

Honey I feel your pain, I was on a PRESCRITION med AND took mylanta, and ALSO had GALLSTONES!!! I had bad reflux and heartburn, but mine was there before pg, then I got gallstones which just gave me more pain.

Mylanta Extra Strength for Heartburn with the cooling stuff, worked WONDERS for me. take it right before going to bed, try NOT to drink any fluids late in the evening either, cut out as much caffeine from all sources possible, coffee, coke, tea, CHOCOLATE, also spicy foods, carbonated beverages, don't eat large or heavy meals either, lots of tiny meals throughout the day or small meals with lots of small snacks.

Check with your doc if she okays it but usually pepcid is ok during pg as well.

Hope you can find some relief

I have cut out tomatoes, and carbonated drinks (especially at night). This seems to be helping a little. Tried the milk and it just curdled on my stomach and then I threw up. Don't want to do that again. I think the next thing I will try is the mylanta.
