I have terrible heartburn tonight! I have taken two pills already, so I can’t take anymore for about 24 hours. Any advice? I thought about drinking milk, but read online that it actually makes it worse. Thanks in advance!

Mix some (1 tsp) of baking soda into water… or buy some alka seltzer gold (same thing, tastes better!). Gaviscon is fine to take ontop of the pills and works way better for me than tums. Camomile tea and ginger helps me as well. Milk and other things always made it worse for me.

It might be too late, but my dad swears by a handful of shredded mini-wheats. He eats a handful every morning and every evening and says he doesn’t have to take any OTC medicines for heartburn as a result. As I became afflicted with heartburn (maybe its genetic) about a year ago, I tried it too, using frosted mini wheats because i can’t stand the taste. It works, it’s cheap, and you don’t have to deal with the chalky medicinal taste! If you have this problem again, try it, and let us know what you think!
