Ladies, Any of you find something to help with acid reflux??? I have it so incredibly bad that the doctor actually gave me a prescription to help. However, have any of you found something (non medicine) to help with this painful problem???

I have a very bad acid reflux too. I try to avoid spicy foods and eat a lot of yoghurt. It helps to reduce the severity, but still now and then it kills me.

The only thing that I've found to help is medicine! My acid reflux was making me vomit, so now I'm taking prilosec twice a day

I was on a prescription before I got pregnancy. I find that the best thing for me now is Zantac 150 (you can take 2 a day).

Sorry Kathleen.. it sucks! I took Nexium with my first baby. You doctor can give you a prescription.. most of the reflux drugs are safe. Good luck...

I just take some perscription pepcid 30 min before eating, and 30 min before bedtime. Its awesome. I can eat buffalo chicken AND orange juice at the same time!!! But i think im lucky and can just get away with that!

When does the acid reflux / indigestion stop? I'm 14w 3d now. Will it stop some time soon? Or is it bound to continue all throughout pregnancy? I figured out that my nausea and vomiting has subsided a lot, but my acid reflux is triggering it again.

I didn't have heartburn or acid reflux until the past 2 weeks. I'm 31 weeks now. I think it gets worse when you get further along because of things inside being pushed up...I also have to lay on my back and side alot because I'm on bedrest so that might play a part but just wanted to let you know that it doesn't neccesarily go away.

April mom -- my reflux didn't get better with my first baby until after the baby was born. However, I think it just depends. I have friends that have had heartburn only in the early months and then they were fine... mine just got slowly worse though. Hopefully, you will be like my friends!
