I’ve been taking Prevacid for years now and when I got pregnant, the doctor told me it was fine to keep taking it if I thought I needed to.  I get heartburn so bad at the best of times I knew there was no way I could function without it…anyway, he switched me to Omeprazole, which apparently is the same thing but it’s the version that’s been around the longest.  I just take one 20 mg every morning, and no heartburn or reflux (for the most part)!  Maybe she could ask her dr if that’s something she could try.

@kiwi: Not preggo, but thanks to my hiatal hernia, I have it at the ripe old age of 22! Eat small meals whenever your stomach lets you eat is the best I have. I have to switch up which antacid chewable I use because I get tired of them all the time.

Also, I’m not sure why she’s getting diarrhea from maalox, uness she’s taking milk of magnesia instead.
