Points to Remember:
If you have an concerns about the medication you are on, whether it is working properly or effectively, or additional symptoms occur, you should discuss this with your doctor. And while what we eat is often the trigger for acid reflux, there may be other things we do that increase the risk of reflux, and changing how or when we do these may help in eliminating symptoms. Nighttime heartburn is a common problem, and a few preventative steps may help stop the reflux. Also, what we do before, during, and after a meal can contribute to acid reflux, even when we watch what we eat. Meal planning helps with this. Other lifestyle modifications are also helpful.
