Along with these changes over the counter drugs are available to you. Antacids are useful in relieving your heartburn . H2 blockers are drugs that bring down the acid in the stomach. Both drugs are safe if you get heartburn once and awhile. If you are on these drugs for more than 3 weeks you should notify your doctor.

There are many prescription drugs available from your doctor. Prokinectic or promotility drugs help to make the LES muscle stronger. Proton Pump Inhibitors are the strongest of this class of medicine. They block acid production in your stomach.

At this time our GERD patient has been taken off of propulsid and put on reglan along with prilosec.
