I was diagnoses with an hiatal hernia which causes occasional heartburn especially lying down. I did not want to continue on the various 24hr acid reducer perscriptions because of side effects etc. I felt that I just needed to protect my esophagus from acid damage at night. I am happy to say that after 10 years of nightly use and a follow up endoscopy, my esophagus is VERY healthy!

Tried Prilosec first however it gave me terrible headaches. Went to generic Pepcid and after about 2 or 3 weeks noticed significant improvement. Now I take it to keep the symptoms at bay. I take 10MG two times a day.

Comment from: Aletheia, 25-34 on Treatment for 1-6 months (Patient) Published: August 29

I ended up taking this drug the last month of pregnancy because my heartburn was so bad I could not sleep. It worked. however after having my baby (this is my 4th) my heartburn usually goes away. I stopped taking the medicine but the heartburn gradually increased I think it lowered the acid in my stomach and made things worse I looked and looked for alternatives after reading the side effects of the medicine and found a cancer blog all of them were talking about how the chemotherapy gave them terrible heartburn and the medicines side effects. They said to try Apple cider vinegar organic and raw I tried it (3 teaspoons in water and honey 3 times a day) and it worked no joke it was amazing this is the first time I can say that a homeopathic medicine worked It has made me feel great. I hate hate hate heartburn.

Seems to work, but after 60 days I really am noticing a terrible smell to my urine and now my breath! Do not know if that's normal or not. Otherwise, feeling better, no gastric spasms since two weeks into therapy.

Eliminated symptoms and allowed me to sleep. One tablet in the morning and one at night. don't forget to drink a full glass of water after swallowing chewable tablet. May need additional tablet at bedtime if acid reflux or indigestion is active. No negative reactions. No bad side effects. Great product for me.

Comment from: 65-74 on Treatment for less than 1 month (Patient) Published: May 30

This medication worked, but the skin problems developed were horrible. A rash on the thighs, back and chest and leg swelling twice the normal size. The skin is black and pebbly, and I had to be put on antibiotics to get rid of the secondary infection. Not a safe product as far as I am concerned.
