Is there any other uses for it besides peptic ulcer? Asked by Carley Waters 1 year ago.

Cimetidine is a prescription-only drug in most countries; in the USA it is prescripton-only at higher doses, but there is an OTC dosage available under the name Tagamet HB. It is approved by the FDA for treating ulcers and heartburn. It has been tested and used for some other conditions but those are considered "off-label" and not approved by the FDA.

Asked by Zelma Gascoigne 1 year ago.

Hi. I need a quick remedy to stop my acid reflux. I've recently become sick with severe viral pharyngitis that is on edge of being strep throat. Because of this, I have not been eating and drinking in adequacy due to all of the post nasal drip in my stomach ruining my appetite (I know, gross), and the trouble swallowing because of the pain. The only thing I had consumed earlier today was at 5 o'clock pm. This was a cup of yogurt and about 1/3 of a cup of tea. A few minutes later, my throat was feeling a horrible burning sensation. I then realized I had been doing everything wrong. A few main causes of acid reflux: inadequate amount of food and drink intake and caffeinated beverages like tea! I've been eating actual serving size amounts in three hours periods and drinking as much water as I can handle, but now I can't get rid of it! Help! Pleeeaaase! My throat is already sore and bruised because of the virus. Acid getting into the bruises does not feel great at all! Answered by Sharan Skrabanek 1 year ago.

"I need a quick remedy to stop my acid reflux." -- Pepcid AC, Tagamet HB, Zantac 75. I mention these 3 because (1) they're OTC and don't require a prescription; (2) These are H2-antagonists and will start working i about an hour, unlike PPIs (proton pump inhibitors). Have you not seen a doctor?? Is this an ongoing problem or a recent one? "I've recently become sick with severe viral pharyngitis that is on edge of being strep throat." -- Viral infections don't "grow up" to be bacterial infections. Most pharyngitis (which means sore throat) is viral but Strep is always bacterial -- it *has* to be, it's Streptococcus pyogenes. "My throat is already sore and bruised because of the virus. Acid getting into the bruises does not feel great at all!" -- Your throat isn't bruised but certainly may be inflamed, so yes, gastric acid would be very painful when it contacts inflamed membranes. "Because of this, I have not been eating and drinking in adequacy due to all of the post nasal drip in my stomach ruining my appetite and the trouble swallowing because of the pain." -- Then treat your symptoms. A nasal decongestant, or antihistamine that contains one, for the PND, Chloraseptic anesthetic throat spray, lozenges or dissolving strips for the sore throat. I suggest you address your throat first because poor nutrition isn't helping and neither is inadequate fluid intake. This will only create new problems for you that you don't need. "A few main causes of acid reflux: inadequate amount of food and drink intake" -- What?? The cause of GERD is poor muscle tone and/or spasm of the LES. This *is* the cause. There's no primary or secondary cause. Eating small meals and drinking too little water have *never* been causes of GERD. On the contrary, ingesting too much in one sitting puts stress on the LES and greatly increases the risk for reflux. So does lying on the left side (pressure on the stomach, which is int he left, upper quadrant of the abdomen), eating within 3 hours of bedtime (encourages reflux). Stay upright for an hour after meals to allow stomach contents to empty. Gravity can help. Eat 4-6 smaller meals rather than 3 larger ones. Answered by Felipa Hyland 1 year ago.

Everytime you feel the pain take a teaspoon of vinegar. Avic reflux is actually a lack of acid, not excess acid. This'll help within a minute. ^^ Answered by Darin Brody 1 year ago.


What medicine should I take?
Thank you much Jennifer! I think I'll try pepto bismol. Asked by Kacy Beliz 1 year ago.

I would say Pepto if your felling sick. Or Tagamet HB if its like acid or if it feels like it burns. Tagamet is over the counter at CVS, walmart a store like that. Hope you feel better. Also good luck when you join us in the armed forces, if you haven't already Answered by Ena Manchel 1 year ago.

Hi Natalie....Yeah I hate it when my stomach feels this way...I suggest you try 'PEPTO BISMOL'.This medication is over-the-counter,and it will surely do the trick.....Hope you feel better very soon....:) Answered by Melonie Grodecki 1 year ago.

I dont take medication because I believe in home remedies and no drugs(unless its and emergency) maybe you should consider drinking a clear soda like 7 up or sierra mist.Your not that sick and I dont think the situation requires drugs. You could induce vomiting(drinking salt water) or just wait it out. Its nothing you cant handle. You shouldnt have to use drugs, you will end up using drugs for everything, get addicted to pain-killers, and die. Happy non-drug use :) Answered by Tianna Sauredo 1 year ago.

pepto bismol would be the way to go its made for nausea and upset stomach good luck ^_^ Answered by Franchesca Zaharis 1 year ago.


Are there any diets that will help acid reflex disease?
I have acid reflex disease and i am having trouble finding a diet or any yummy foods that will not kill my stomach. If you have any foods or if you have acid reflex disease can you list them? Thanks!! Asked by Season Mcfann 1 year ago.

Ok here is the most up to date guidelines for mild reflux, it is not so much about the food as people think... Mild symptoms — Initial treatments for mild reflux include dietary changes and using non-prescription medications, including antacids or acid blocking medicines (such as famotidine [Pepcid AC®], cimetidine [Tagamet HB®], nizatidine [Axid AR®] and ranitidine [Zantac 75®]). Additional changes to the diet or lifestyle may also be helpful. For people with mild symptoms, these treatments can be tried before seeking medical attention. However, anyone with more serious symptoms should speak to their healthcare provider before using any treatment (see "Symptoms" above). Weight loss — In significantly overweight people, losing weight may help reduce reflux. In addition, weight loss has a number of other health benefits, including a decreased risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease. (See "Patient information: Weight loss treatments"). Raise the head of the bed six to eight inches — Although most patients only have heartburn for the two- to three-hour period after meals, some wake up at night with heartburn. People with nighttime heartburn can elevate the head of their bed, which raises the head and shoulders higher than the stomach, allowing gravity to prevent acid from refluxing. Raising the head of the bed can be done with blocks of wood or a foam wedge under the mattress. However, it is not helpful to use additional pillows; this can cause an unnatural bend in the body that increases pressure on the stomach, making reflux more likely. Several manufacturers have developed commercial products for this purpose (for one example, see www.bedge.com). Avoid reflux inducing foods — Some foods also cause relaxation of the lower esophageal sphincter, promoting reflux. Excessive caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, peppermint, and fatty foods may cause bothersome reflux in some people. Quit smoking — Saliva helps to neutralize refluxed acid, and smoking reduces the amount of saliva in the mouth and throat. Smoking also lowers the pressure in the lower esophageal sphincter and provokes coughing, causing frequent episodes of acid reflux in the esophagus. Quitting smoking can reduce or eliminate symptoms of mild reflux. (See "Patient information: Smoking cessation"). Avoid large and late meals — Lying down with a full stomach may increase the risk of reflux. By eating three or more hours before bedtime, reflux may be reduced. In addition, eating smaller meals may prevent the stomach from becoming overdistended, which can cause reflux. Avoid tight fitting clothing — At a minimum, tight fitting clothing can increase discomfort, but it may also increase pressure in the abdomen, forcing stomach contents into the esophagus. Chew gum or use oral lozenges — Chewing gum or using lozenges can increase saliva production, which may help to clear stomach acid that has entered the esophagus. Although these suggestions have been recommended for many years, their effectiveness has not been extensively evaluated in well-designed clinical trials. A review of the published literature concluded that there was evidence supporting the effectiveness of weight loss and head of bed elevation, but no evidence for the other measures described above [1]. Thus, these recommendations may be helpful in some, but not all people with mild symptoms of reflux. Answered by Ellie Drumwright 1 year ago.

I was just reading a bit about the rise in throat cancers in recent years. In non-smokers it's attributed partly to the rise in numbers of people with acid reflux. The full name of the disease is Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease, also known as GERD. In this illness, the sphincter at the base of the esophagus that opens into the stomach malfunctions in some way, allowing stomach contents, including stomach acid, to back up into the esophagus. Once in a while isn't a problem but chronically it burns the esophagus and can cause ulcers and scarring, not to mention heartburn and sharp chest pain. A person can suffer occasional or even chronic reflux without having the diagnosis of "Disease". I have reflux, too, but it isn't bad enough or often enough to cause me to be diagnosed as having disease, just a chronic problem. I don't know if the cancer can be prevented, but managing diet strictly, getting plenty of exercise and losing weight if it's a problem, being active, rather then sedentary after meals, and taking the prescribed medications can probably help reduce flare-ups and the chances of developing cancer. I hope this helps. Answered by Luis Boehman 1 year ago.

Acid Reflux Disease Diet Acid Reflux is a big problem for more and more people these days, so I want to share some tips that'll help you develop your own acid reflux disease diet that'll make the problem better or alleviate it altogether. First, here are some foods that have little potential to aggravate acid reflux disease... Friendly Fruits Apple, fresh Apple, dried Apple juice Banana Friendly Vegetables Vegetables Baked potato Broccoli Cabbage Carrots Green beans Peas Friendly Animal Foods Ground beef, extra-lean Steak, London Broil Chicken breast, skinless Egg whites Egg substitute Fish, no added fat Friendly Dairy Foods Dairy Cheese, feta or goat Cream cheese, fat-free Sour cream, fat-free Friendly Grain-based Foods Bread, mult-grain Cereal, bran or oatmeal Corn bread Graham crackers Pretzels Rice, brown or white Rice cakes Friendly Drinks Filtered pure water Now, here are foods you should avoid for your acid reflux disease diet, foods that are almost guaranteed to cause heartburn problems... Unfriendly Fruits All citrus fruits and juices Lemonade Grapefruit juice Cranberry juice Tomatoes Unfriendly Vegetables Mashed potatoes French fries Raw onions Unfriendly Meats Ground beef, chuck Marbled sirloin Chicken nuggets Buffalo wings Unfriendly Dairy Sour cream Milk shakes Ice cream Cottage cheese, regular Unfriendly Grains Macaroni and cheese Spaghetti with sauce Unfriendly Beverages All alcoholic beverages, including wine and hard liquor Coffee, decaffeinated or regular Tea, decaffeinated or regular Other Foods to Avoid Fatty or fried foods Peppermint and spearmint Whole milk Oils Chocolate Creamed foods or soups Most fast foods And here are some miscellaneous techniques to try if you suffer from acid reflux disease... Since nicotine weakens the lower esophageal muscle, you should stop using tobacco in all forms. Avoid chewing gum and hard candy, which increase the amount of swallowed air, which, in turn, leads to belching and reflux. Do not lie down immediately after eating. Avoid late evening snacks. Avoid tight clothing and bending over after eating. Eat small, frequent portions of food and snack if needed. Lose weight if overweight. Obesity leads to increased reflux. Elevate the head of the bed six to eight inches to prevent reflux when sleeping. Extra pillows, by themselves, are not very helpful. Remember, the healthiest diets are those that are composed whole foods from both plant and animal kingdoms. If you want a great diet that will build health, stay away from processed and packaged foods as much as possible. You'll be pleasantly surprised at the improvements you'll experience when you practice the acid reflux disease diet that you developed. Answered by Starr Hollerud 1 year ago.

I have acid reflux, I use 150 mg of zantac, (2 tablets) from the over the counter part. The prescription is triple the cost. But yes it does great I don't have any more problems, and if I think a certain food will flair it up, I take the zantac. Answered by Danita Monnet 1 year ago.

If you have acid reflux, stay away from spicy foods and actually one of the treatments for acid reflux is taking a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar everyday. No kidding. Answered by Faviola Toussiant 1 year ago.

If foods are killing your stomach then this is probably not just reflux as reflux refers to the acid backing up in to your esophogus causing that burning sensation AFTER you have eaten. See your doc for a proper diagnosis and treatement. Answered by Hildred Mccague 1 year ago.

Take a glass of water and add two tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar to it. Drink this with your meal. You will not have any acid reflux. Best wishes... Answered by Pearlie Lale 1 year ago.

My husband drinks Minute Maid low-acid orange juice--a good alternative to regular. He was also told to avoid caffeinated drinks such as coffee, tea, and cola because they may irritate an already inflamed esophagus. Answered by Hortencia Siemek 1 year ago.

I would say Pepto if your felling sick. Or Tagamet HB if its like acid or if it feels like it burns. Tagamet is over the counter at CVS, walmart a store like that. Hope you feel better. Also good luck when you join us in the armed forces, if you haven't already Answered by Lazaro Lauster 1 year ago.

Hi Natalie....Yeah I hate it when my stomach feels this way...I suggest you try 'PEPTO BISMOL'.This medication is over-the-counter,and it will surely do the trick.....Hope you feel better very soon....:) Answered by Rey Lysak 1 year ago.

I dont take medication because I believe in home remedies and no drugs(unless its and emergency) maybe you should consider drinking a clear soda like 7 up or sierra mist.Your not that sick and I dont think the situation requires drugs. You could induce vomiting(drinking salt water) or just wait it out. Its nothing you cant handle. You shouldnt have to use drugs, you will end up using drugs for everything, get addicted to pain-killers, and die. Happy non-drug use :) Answered by Tessie Kulka 1 year ago.

pepto bismol would be the way to go its made for nausea and upset stomach good luck ^_^ Answered by Lili Khemmanivong 1 year ago.


Are there any diets that will help acid reflex disease?
I have acid reflex disease and i am having trouble finding a diet or any yummy foods that will not kill my stomach. If you have any foods or if you have acid reflex disease can you list them? Thanks!! Asked by Wynona Okins 1 year ago.

Ok here is the most up to date guidelines for mild reflux, it is not so much about the food as people think... Mild symptoms — Initial treatments for mild reflux include dietary changes and using non-prescription medications, including antacids or acid blocking medicines (such as famotidine [Pepcid AC®], cimetidine [Tagamet HB®], nizatidine [Axid AR®] and ranitidine [Zantac 75®]). Additional changes to the diet or lifestyle may also be helpful. For people with mild symptoms, these treatments can be tried before seeking medical attention. However, anyone with more serious symptoms should speak to their healthcare provider before using any treatment (see "Symptoms" above). Weight loss — In significantly overweight people, losing weight may help reduce reflux. In addition, weight loss has a number of other health benefits, including a decreased risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease. (See "Patient information: Weight loss treatments"). Raise the head of the bed six to eight inches — Although most patients only have heartburn for the two- to three-hour period after meals, some wake up at night with heartburn. People with nighttime heartburn can elevate the head of their bed, which raises the head and shoulders higher than the stomach, allowing gravity to prevent acid from refluxing. Raising the head of the bed can be done with blocks of wood or a foam wedge under the mattress. However, it is not helpful to use additional pillows; this can cause an unnatural bend in the body that increases pressure on the stomach, making reflux more likely. Several manufacturers have developed commercial products for this purpose (for one example, see www.bedge.com). Avoid reflux inducing foods — Some foods also cause relaxation of the lower esophageal sphincter, promoting reflux. Excessive caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, peppermint, and fatty foods may cause bothersome reflux in some people. Quit smoking — Saliva helps to neutralize refluxed acid, and smoking reduces the amount of saliva in the mouth and throat. Smoking also lowers the pressure in the lower esophageal sphincter and provokes coughing, causing frequent episodes of acid reflux in the esophagus. Quitting smoking can reduce or eliminate symptoms of mild reflux. (See "Patient information: Smoking cessation"). Avoid large and late meals — Lying down with a full stomach may increase the risk of reflux. By eating three or more hours before bedtime, reflux may be reduced. In addition, eating smaller meals may prevent the stomach from becoming overdistended, which can cause reflux. Avoid tight fitting clothing — At a minimum, tight fitting clothing can increase discomfort, but it may also increase pressure in the abdomen, forcing stomach contents into the esophagus. Chew gum or use oral lozenges — Chewing gum or using lozenges can increase saliva production, which may help to clear stomach acid that has entered the esophagus. Although these suggestions have been recommended for many years, their effectiveness has not been extensively evaluated in well-designed clinical trials. A review of the published literature concluded that there was evidence supporting the effectiveness of weight loss and head of bed elevation, but no evidence for the other measures described above [1]. Thus, these recommendations may be helpful in some, but not all people with mild symptoms of reflux. Answered by Yolande Kampmann 1 year ago.

I was just reading a bit about the rise in throat cancers in recent years. In non-smokers it's attributed partly to the rise in numbers of people with acid reflux. The full name of the disease is Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease, also known as GERD. In this illness, the sphincter at the base of the esophagus that opens into the stomach malfunctions in some way, allowing stomach contents, including stomach acid, to back up into the esophagus. Once in a while isn't a problem but chronically it burns the esophagus and can cause ulcers and scarring, not to mention heartburn and sharp chest pain. A person can suffer occasional or even chronic reflux without having the diagnosis of "Disease". I have reflux, too, but it isn't bad enough or often enough to cause me to be diagnosed as having disease, just a chronic problem. I don't know if the cancer can be prevented, but managing diet strictly, getting plenty of exercise and losing weight if it's a problem, being active, rather then sedentary after meals, and taking the prescribed medications can probably help reduce flare-ups and the chances of developing cancer. I hope this helps. Answered by Calvin Pascoal 1 year ago.

Acid Reflux Disease Diet Acid Reflux is a big problem for more and more people these days, so I want to share some tips that'll help you develop your own acid reflux disease diet that'll make the problem better or alleviate it altogether. First, here are some foods that have little potential to aggravate acid reflux disease... Friendly Fruits Apple, fresh Apple, dried Apple juice Banana Friendly Vegetables Vegetables Baked potato Broccoli Cabbage Carrots Green beans Peas Friendly Animal Foods Ground beef, extra-lean Steak, London Broil Chicken breast, skinless Egg whites Egg substitute Fish, no added fat Friendly Dairy Foods Dairy Cheese, feta or goat Cream cheese, fat-free Sour cream, fat-free Friendly Grain-based Foods Bread, mult-grain Cereal, bran or oatmeal Corn bread Graham crackers Pretzels Rice, brown or white Rice cakes Friendly Drinks Filtered pure water Now, here are foods you should avoid for your acid reflux disease diet, foods that are almost guaranteed to cause heartburn problems... Unfriendly Fruits All citrus fruits and juices Lemonade Grapefruit juice Cranberry juice Tomatoes Unfriendly Vegetables Mashed potatoes French fries Raw onions Unfriendly Meats Ground beef, chuck Marbled sirloin Chicken nuggets Buffalo wings Unfriendly Dairy Sour cream Milk shakes Ice cream Cottage cheese, regular Unfriendly Grains Macaroni and cheese Spaghetti with sauce Unfriendly Beverages All alcoholic beverages, including wine and hard liquor Coffee, decaffeinated or regular Tea, decaffeinated or regular Other Foods to Avoid Fatty or fried foods Peppermint and spearmint Whole milk Oils Chocolate Creamed foods or soups Most fast foods And here are some miscellaneous techniques to try if you suffer from acid reflux disease... Since nicotine weakens the lower esophageal muscle, you should stop using tobacco in all forms. Avoid chewing gum and hard candy, which increase the amount of swallowed air, which, in turn, leads to belching and reflux. Do not lie down immediately after eating. Avoid late evening snacks. Avoid tight clothing and bending over after eating. Eat small, frequent portions of food and snack if needed. Lose weight if overweight. Obesity leads to increased reflux. Elevate the head of the bed six to eight inches to prevent reflux when sleeping. Extra pillows, by themselves, are not very helpful. Remember, the healthiest diets are those that are composed whole foods from both plant and animal kingdoms. If you want a great diet that will build health, stay away from processed and packaged foods as much as possible. You'll be pleasantly surprised at the improvements you'll experience when you practice the acid reflux disease diet that you developed. Answered by Angelique Hohney 1 year ago.

I have acid reflux, I use 150 mg of zantac, (2 tablets) from the over the counter part. The prescription is triple the cost. But yes it does great I don't have any more problems, and if I think a certain food will flair it up, I take the zantac. Answered by Elliot Hensler 1 year ago.

If you have acid reflux, stay away from spicy foods and actually one of the treatments for acid reflux is taking a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar everyday. No kidding. Answered by Oretha Recidivi 1 year ago.

If foods are killing your stomach then this is probably not just reflux as reflux refers to the acid backing up in to your esophogus causing that burning sensation AFTER you have eaten. See your doc for a proper diagnosis and treatement. Answered by Colleen Lepere 1 year ago.

Take a glass of water and add two tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar to it. Drink this with your meal. You will not have any acid reflux. Best wishes... Answered by Mana Jaus 1 year ago.

My husband drinks Minute Maid low-acid orange juice--a good alternative to regular. He was also told to avoid caffeinated drinks such as coffee, tea, and cola because they may irritate an already inflamed esophagus. Answered by Alethea Adonis 1 year ago.

taking apple cider vinegar, has recently been proposed as permanently relieving acid reflux, and stomach overacidity. Of course, its the opposite of the conventional wisdom, but when was that wisdom ever wise? Answered by Shaun Ovitt 1 year ago.
