How long should i take zantac for acid reflux?
I suffer from acid reflux and to treat it i take maximum strength zantac 150 mg. I want to know how long i should be taking zantac and if it will eventually cure me of my acid reflux? Also because of the acid reflux my voice sounds very muffled and it makes it hard for people to understand me when i speak will my voice ever go back to normal or is the damage from the acid already done? I have been suffering from acid reflux since i was 18 and now i'm 27.

I can't answer your question like a pro because I'm not a physician, but I do know that many reports say that that you shouldn't take acid reflux medication for longer than one or two months. But I had the same problem and took bottles and bottles of medication and although they helped some, I still had acid reflux at times. I'd be up at night trying to get relief. Right after a meal, I was suffering. I was miserable. Although this lasted for like 10 years, the last three was the worst and that's when I started prescription medications. Then I read about how most are only supposed to be prescribed for 2 weeks and thought, uh oh.

Because I hate taking medicine and because I thought the meds can't be that good for my system, plus, they barely helped, I started to look for a natural way to treat/cure my acid reflux. I tried one and it really worked. I haven't taken prescription meds for acid reflux in like 12 months! Plus, I only did the natural treatment for like 7 days and then as needed after that. In the last 8 months, I've used it maybe twice! It really worked for me. I'm 36 years old now. I know there are a lot of scammy stuff out there, but this one really and truly worked for me.

I don't know if your interested in approaching your acid reflux naturally, but if you are, I added a link to the website that tells about it. Plus, I added the link about zantac too.

Hope this helps and good luck man.

Whats the difference between laryngopharyngeal reflux and acid reflux?
And do the PPI's such as nexium and other prescription ppi's work to help laryngopharyngeal reflux? because i know once off it for acid reflux it creates "Acid rebound" BUT does it do the same for laryngophryngeal reflux?
  There are two sphincter muscles in the esophagus - lower esophageal sphincter (LES) and the upper esophageal sphincter (UES). If the lower esophageal sphincter does not function properly, there is a back flow of stomach acid into the esophagus. 2 or more times a week can be classed as gastroesophageal reflux disease - GERD. If the upper esophageal sphincter doesn't function properly, stomach acid that has back flowed into the esophagus is allowed into the throat and voice box - Laryngopharyngeal Reflux - LPR.

Unlike all the medical profession saying there is a fault with the esophageal sphincter, and many unnessary surgeries are performed to "correct" this problem, the fact is most people suffering from these conditions just have LOW stomach acid/lack of digestive enzymes in the diet. Acid blockers do not cure GERD, LPR or acid reflux. They should not be taken for more than 14 days, 8 weeks at the most.

My mother had both GERD and LPR for 5 years. Throwing away the acid blocker nexium, and starting digestive enzyme supplements, both GERD and LPR were gone in a few weeks (after trial and error of different digestive enzymes) and she continues to take them with each meal to help digestion. A simple digestive enzyme supplement that helps digest the food and increase stomach acid is all that is needed in most cases. Other causes of acid reflux include hiatus hernia, H Pylori bacteria (cured with antibiotics), obesity, pregnancy, asthma, diabetes (caused by low stomach acid) or hypothyroidism (caused by low stomach acid).

25 years of gastritis, 25 years of acid blockers! 80% better in 7 months already with digestive enzymes.

Mother suffered for 5 years with GERD and LPR....cured within a few weeks with alternative medicine....priceless :)

How to tell if you have acid reflux disease?
I'm a firm believer that the world is over-prescribed. I think that pharmaceutical companies just want to give you a pill for everything under the sun. So with that in mind I never thought I would get acid reflux disease. I always thought that I could just live with general acid reflux, because so many people have in the past and they got along just fine.
So my question is: how can you tell if you have acid reflux? What are the symptoms and if I have it, how can I reduce it without medication.

Thanks in advance.
Penny Lane
  You need to see a doc if you think you have it for a confirmed diagnosis and a cause. You may have a hiatal hernia causing it but you would never know if you don't see a doc. GERD is not something you can not treat as left unteated it can lead to esophogeal erosion which is serious. My dad never realized he had GERD and now has esophogeal erosion. See your doc if you think you have it.
Does Acid Reflux create a warm sensation in your stomach and make your esophagus congested?
The best way I can describe it is , from my shoulders to my upper torso it felt like my body had a cool mist inside of it, sort of like a vapor, when i stepped outside. Be aware of the fact that it was 70 degrees outside. I just wanna know is that acid reflux or can acid reflux make you feel like that?
  Acid reflux is like really bad heartburn.

What you are describing sounds like the onset of stomach flu.

My boyfriend has been diagnosed with acid reflux disease, but he has symptoms other than acid reflux?
What can I do? We can't afford anymore medicine, and I do think he has acid reflux but I believe it's something more. He says he's having burning in his chest, Tums doesn't help, neither medicines Omeprazole Magnesium and Ranitidine are working, he hasn't eaten anything that should irritate his acid reflux in the past 3 days though he hasn't had any relief in pain. everytime he eats he still feels hungry and gives him headaches, when he lays down his heart beat increases to a pounding and keeps him from sleeping until he is exhausted and cant keep himself awake. I'm in training as a certified nurse and ive been studying his symptoms and trying to figure out what is wrong with him,and i simply cannot figure anything out. also he has asthma, which he's had since he was young and nothing like this with his heart pounding has ever occured. if anyone can tell me if this is acid reflux or what it is please, because we can't afford another doctors trip.
  Have they done an ultrasound of his gallbladder? It could be gallstones.
does quitting smoking also make acid reflux worst?
is this true that stopping smoking makes you have acid reflux and sometimes make acid reflux work. and also. tell me how long did it take you to go thru the symptoms after quitting smoking. smoking cold turkey and not substituting it to patches or ecigs or any medication.

  I am not a doctor, so either way you will want to talk to them, but this is what I have to say as a long time sufferer of Acid Reflux (G.E.R.D.)!

Three part answer information, what not to do, and what to do!

I have a very severe case of Acid Reflux (G.E.R.D.). I have had to go to the hospital for some of the heartburn that I have had because the pain can become overwhelming or your breathing can be effected. It can be caused by Smoking, Drinking Beverages with caffeine (My case), Drinking Beverages with Alcohol, or can be Hereditary

The good thing about G.E.R.D. is that it can be a temporary thing and can be cured. It is never a permit thing even if you end up with it for the rest of your life it has the ability to be cured.

G.E.R.D. is caused by too much acid being created in your stomach. This can lead to or cause ulcers, esophagus damage, heartburn and/or damage in the mouth. . Other symptoms that can be found in a few cases are dizziness, tingling in limbs, numbness of Limbs, Chest/Back pain focused on the left side (in most cases), and shortness/difficulty breathing.

WHAT NOT TO DO!!!!!!!!
In most cases, stress is a factor to the reflux if you watch what you eat and reduce some of the stress it will help. If you watch what you eat for about a week you should find relief, if you do not then that is when you definitely what to listen to the doctor. Things to watch for are as follows:

Fatty Foods
Citrus Foods
Foods That Contain Grease
Fried Foods
Chocolate (including any Coco)
Tomato Based Products
Roughage (Berries and Nuts)

The two foods that I recommend is Black strap Molasses and Raw honey. The apple is better for night time reflux while these will work for just about all of it. What you will do is take about a tsp. of whatever one you chose. Molasses being the better because of strength and nutrition, but must be use to the taste. What the substance will do is stick to the sides of the esophagus and do two things, one is heal and the other is protect.
On the healing end, both substances have a healing property in them, and as they sit on the walls of the esophagus they will heal it. This is also helpful if you have a sore throat in the morning from refluxing.
On the protection end, both substances are high in sugar and when acid that is refluxed comes up to that the sugar will neutralize it and it will not longer be a problem at that point.

I would also look to putting Cinnamon and Ginger in you diet, they have been know to help with digestion and will help you reduce the amount of acid needed to brake down food, therefore causing you to reflux less.
could acid reflux come from hiatus hernia and cause problems with breathing-whats best advise to ease this

  for more information see the webmd site below. please note the section that states "If you have shortness of breath or pain in the area of your breastbone, you need to make sure it is not caused by a heart problem."
acid reflux?
what are the symptoms of acid reflux? and if you have it, what can you do to stop it?

also is it genetic, and does drinking aclohol make it worse?
  it can be genetic but i think in most cases it is due to the eating habits that are inherited. We tend to inherit diseases because we learn to eat from the same people who learned the same habits from people who also had those diseases. Anything that is not pure food; veggies and fruit and whole grains, can give you acid reflux. It is a hot burning feeling in your throat or can cause chest pains, heartburn, in your chest and an indigestion feeling in your solo plex. This tends to be strongest at night and is aggravated by water more than anything else. Propping yourself up at night can help or sleeping upright but if you have this it should be treated properly. If an over the counter reflux med doesnt work, get some zantac. You can't let this go untreated. You could burn a hole in you esophagus.

Is it ok to take 2 Zantac 150 in one day?
I took it at 7 this morning ,but gas it making it hard to breath right now it's 11 at night
acid reflux
acid reflux does have something to do with gas
  why would you take zantac for gas? it is for ulcers, reflux, etc.....

and yes you can take 2 in one day, my husband is prescribed one in the morning and one before bed.
What are the symptoms of acid reflux and How can you tell if you have it?
Lately my throat has felt like its burning and acid-y. It also feels like I have to burp after I eat. Are these symptoms of acid reflux?
  Patients with acid reflux often report suffering from nausea. In fact, nausea as a result of acid reflux is so common that when a patient experiences nausea with no apparent cause, a doctor usually suspects acid reflux as the culprit.

Equally as common as nausea occurring from acid reflux is regurgitation. Regurgitation occurs when refluxed liquid actually backs up into the mouth. Sometimes, this liquid can contain food. When a patient regurgitates, they often experience a burning sensation as refluxed liquid and food bypass the UES (upper esophageal sphincter) and make their way into the mouth. This burning is often accompanied by an awful, acidic taste. If a patient continues to experience regurgitation, it can actually cause damage to their teeth as the acidic substance erodes the enamel that encases each tooth.

Probably the most common reported complaint of acid reflux patients is the presence of heartburn. This is usually characterized as a searing pain in the chest. It can either begin in your upper abdomen or actually travel up to your neck. For some patients, this can be a cause for alarm. In fact, many people have mistaken painful acid reflux for a heart attack. Heartburn is especially prevalent after eating meals. Although heartburn usually goes away, the bad news is that it is usually a lifelong problem that will eventually return.

Hope this helps...

Medicine for acid reflux?
I need something I can buy at the store with no prescription. I have seriously bad acid reflux, mostly at night when I lay down and gets to the point of I can barely sleep. I tried using Omeprazole Magnesium (off brand crap) and it didnt work at all. I was using something else and it was saying I can only use for 2 weeks.. I usually end up just eating like 2 maximum strength tums a day which I heard is really bad for you.
Chris Porter
  You should go to a doctor and get something stronger. But you can try taking a Zantac 1 hour before bed- they are good for prevention and they are good for night time acid secretion. However, omeprazole is stronger than Zantac.

Also, try to avoid eating three hours before bed.
ugh why me acid reflux???can you help?
so for the past 4 months iv had acid reflux disease and the only meds that work for me are nexium but some time 4 weeks ago i got sick cuz of stress [family problems] anyways i stopped eating but i was still taking nexium lol on a empty stomache any how i got worse with doin that of course so i havent been on any pills for my acid reflux for almost a month now but barely today i feel like my neck is swollen and fat and i feel like my esophagus is in pain right now like its burning me super bad going down to my tummy and of course i have heart burn now my question is why is my neck feeling fat just feels like uncomfortable not in pain just feel ewwyy

i swear ima get back on my nexiums tomorrow but anything is that i have severe acid reflux so if i miss 1 day of a pill my throat acts up and its been almost a month with out meds whats wrong with my throat is it suppose to be feeling this way??
  I totally empathize with you as I was diagnosed with GERD about 6 years ago. Totally can relate to the burning you are describing. It is horrible!! I had a hard time finding a med that would consistently work for me.

Your throat is burning because the acid in your stomach is going up your throat. This can be serious....lesions/erosions can form in the esophagus and over time the esophagus tissue can thin. So it isn't anything to mess around with.

If you continue to have problems with acid reflux and nothing seems to work i would have them look at the functioning of your gallbladder. I recently found out that my acid reflux is the result of bile reflux because my gallbladder isn't working at all. HOpefully that isn't your case but just something to keep in took me SIX years of dealing with severe acid reflux to get this figured out. I wouldn't wish that on anyone else!

Take care!

How can I get rid of acid reflux after the stomach flu?
I had the stomach flu (gastroenteritis) a week ago and now I have terrible acid reflux! I've never had it before and it won't go away. I'm taking antibiotics for something else right now and I'm not supposed to have antacid medicine. Any home remedies??
i have a question
  there are a lot of different home remedies out there for acid reflux. one that has worked well for me is taking a couple spoon fulls of apple cider vinegar. it tastes horrible but has worked.

everyone is different and there are a lot of different things that cause acid reflux so not every remedy will work for every person
I was given Nexium by my doctor for my acid reflux plus unexplained stomach pain. If I try not to take it my pains and acid reflux comes back. My question is...can I continue to take this medicine forever with no repercussions?
balLet GuRl
  yes and it will eventually heal your esophagus and possibly even stomach ulcers
Acid reflux?
What does acid reflux feel like? Give as many details as possible please.

  I have acid reflux, it is not fun.

It starts as a burning feeling in the pit of your stomach, it increases and becomes and intense burning. It will then rise into your throat in waves. Sometimes it can get so painful that it feels like a heart attack. A doctor who treated me at the hospital (when I was first diagnosed) told me that sometimes they get in patients claiming heart attacks but it is really acid reflux.

You will also sometimes vomit when you are having an intense acid reflux attack, you vomit stomach acid, it burns your throat and mouth. I try to drink water really fast to ease the acid down back into my stomach, There is also a lot of burping, It is best to sit upright and not lie down when you are having and acid reflux attack.

Acid reflux sufferers benefit by raising the head of their beds up on bricks so the top of their body is elevated during sleep so that the acid has a harder time of crawling up the esophagus during sleep.

I take 60 mg lansoprazole morning and 300 mg ranitidine at night for acid reflux confirmed by endoscopy?
In the last two weeks i have felt a lump on swallowing ,seen ENT and they confirm acid reflux no actual lump refered again to GI.Will this lump feeling go away.

  I've heard "2 or 3 teaspoons (10-15 ml) of Apple Cider Vinegar in an 8 ounce glass of water, before meals or whenever heartburn is experienced."

It's also quite possible that just drinking more water can help. Do you drink 64 ounces or more per day?
I ahve been taking Lansoprazole 30 mg for past two years for acid reflux and want to come off them but can't?
I have tried to do without but my acid reflux is awful however I am worried about the long term affect of being on this drug I have been taking it for 2 years now any suggestions to help me off it .
  You're right to be concerned about the long term use of any Proton Pump Inhibitor as the tese drugs carry many potentially harmful side effects as do antacids. In fact they can make your acid reflux worse instead of better.

The safest way to alleviate your acid relux is to begin a bland diet and a natural diet of properly combined foods is best. Below I've listed foods to avoid so if you're consuming any of these you should stop immediately.

# Consuming fried, fatty or spicy foods
# Chocolate
# Carbonated beverages
# Alcohol
# Coffee

Went to the emergency room last week?
It was chest pain/pressure which I told them was probably my acid reflux/gerd but it was really hurting and of course my doc was out of town. The bill came to over $4000.00 what in the heck cost that much? Here is a list of my treatment.

1. ekg
2. 2 baby asprin
3. 1 nitro
4. green dragon drink (which is what they give someone with bad acid reflux) inexpensive
5 chest xray
6. Regular stress test with echo. (cost me $600.00) seperate bill.
7. 2 blood tests for heart enzymes

So tell me what the "f" cost so much where the total was around $4700.00?

Yeh it was my acid reflux/gerd

I did find out they charged me for a nuclear stress which is not correct since they injected me with nothing for it.

There was nothing else.. no pain meds, no IV's etc..
Can Prilosec OTC be used to treat laryngopharyngeal reflux?
It seems that Prilosec OTC is advertised to stop heartburn. I understand that it works by blocking pumps in your stomach from producing excessive acid in order to prevent reflux, but can that be a bad thing?

I mean, your stomach needs to produce acid to digest food, and Prilosec will block the pumps that produce that acid.

It is illustrated that Prilosec only blocks some of the pumps to stop excessive production of acid.

Is it safe?
  Not only is it completely safe it is a good choice to treat Laryngopharyngeal reflux...............
When i drink alcohol the next day I have really bad Acid reflux,.Any ideas?
I was taking Nexium but they didn't do anything for me. I never get heartburn and most things i eat don't annoy me but if I go near Alcohol at all the next day i have the worst Acid Reflux ever seen. I basically spend the whole day in bed with a migraine and get sick about six times.

I had 5 pints on Saturday night and spent the whole of Sunday in bed with my head pounding and throwing up pure acid. Ive had the camera down me and was told I had an inflamed stomach. I have changed my diet and am now eating healthy but still cant have a few pints.

My doctor has now put me on SURMONTIL and so I have started to take that......

Do I have to give beer up for good?

Please help, if there is anyone out there in a similar situation then please get in touch,

Thanks in advance,
Paddy M
  hmm this might help. dont drink alcohol. it kills your brain cells. it messes up your liver. it causes you a great deal of acid reflux. it doesnt do anything good for you. so why drink it?

How can you tell the difference between GERD/acid reflux symptoms and a problem with the aorta?
I've had sharp, stabbing pains in the upper stomach area (and a multitude of other symptoms) for a few months now and they seem to be getting worse. How can I differentiate between GERD or acid reflux type symptoms, and something like aortic stenosis or an aortic dissection.
  I'm not sure but if you find out let me know :) I have had a constant full feeling in my upper stomach over the last few days and its doing my head in. I haven't got much of an appetite but feel full, had a dodgy stomach a week ago. I went to my gp and he has given me some Merbentyl as he said it should settle things down and he thought it was just a bug that i have but i'm not convinced.

Is it safe to drink Prevacid(Lansoprazole) every day?
I have an Ulcer in the Esophagus and I drink Prevacid every morning to prevent Acid Reflux as directed by my Dr. If I stop drinking it the reflux comes back. Is it safe to drink it every day? Or should I look for some other way of fighting the reflux?
  look for ways to prevent the reflux..
Any ideas for a healthy substitute for Nexium to treat acid reflux?
I was diagnosed with Acid Reflux a few years ago and put on Nexium. At times it does not seem to be doing what I should, and the BIGGEST problem I have is that there is a tremendous amount of gas. Any ideas on a good (healthy) substitute?
Kathleen J
  The best thing to do is change your diet - it may not help all the way, but it will help a lot. If you eat foods that are alkaline instead of acidic it will help a huge amount.
Cut out greasy foods, soda, coffee, and tomatoe sauces entirely.
If you drink water with lemon (real lemon - not alternatives) it will help to balance out the PH in your stomach. Also tons of fruits and vegis (fresh) and fruit and vegi juices (from a juicer) will make a HUGE difference with your stomach.
Basically you just need to get the acid production down.

Look up "the PH balance diet" - he has lists of acidic and alkaline foods - some will surprise you. If you eat 80% alkaline and 20% or less acidic, you will feel tons better. It's hard to do and a major diet change, but you can do it if you try.

PS, in response to the other answers: ginger does help a lot of people with stomach problems. The over the counter ones will not help you if Nexium isn't doing the job - they don't do anything for me at all.

What is the difference between ulcer and acid reflux?
I have looked up the symptoms of both ulcer and acid reflux...however they seem quite similar. So what is the difference?
  Acid in your stomach can eat through the stomach, which is a gastric ulcer.

Acid in your stomach can escape into your esophagus, which is acid reflux. The acid can damage the esophagus, causing an esophageal ulceration. The two are very similar, and the treatments are almost the same.

One difference: dairy products contain a compound (caesin) that can relax the gastric sphyncter, which is the valve on top of the stomach that lets swallowed food in but keeps acid from getting out. When this valve relaxes, you get more reflux. Because dairy is slightly basic, it will neutralize your stomach acid a bit, which can help ulcers. Of course, an antacid will neutralize the stomach acid a lot more.
Betaine Hydrochloride Good or bad? How often?
I have been wondering if I should take this. Its good for digestive health and acid reflux. So I have read, but also that it could burn inside of your stomach? I am wondering if I do take this should I take it daily or weekly or something to that nature. I have been thinking about getting 400 mg and trying it for awhile as it is what is locally available. I do currently suffer from acid reflux and discomfort after meals and I don't take anything like Nexium or anything currently.

I just wanna know what is right amount to take and should it be taken daily or not so often? weekly? With every meal or just one meal a day or something to that nature? I wouldn't want to take to much.
  *I would not recommend it. Try plain yougrert. Activa by dannon is an excellent brand.
How long should you be taking Nexium for acid reflux?
I have been diagnosed with acid reflux and have been taking 1 Nexium tablet daily for about a year and a half. Although it is used for heartburn I have never had heartburn at any time. I wonder if there is a time limit on long you should be on it.
Lois N
  It's a bad idea to stop any medication without checking with your doctor first. Have you thought that the Nexium is the reason you don't have heartburn?

BTW, people are on it for years w/o difficulty.
