I've not suffered from heartburn or indigestion, but the most horrific acid reflux. Highlights were vomiting in my mouth over night. Everything triggered it, even water. I've been on 150mg Ranitidine twice daily since November though and it's been magic
I was prescribed omeprazole 40g for bad reflux/indigestion which was made worse daily by hyperemesis. They were a life saver but you can take them too often and it almost has the reverse effect. I take them every other day now to keep it at bay but was taking daily. Fingers crossed for you- it was a horrible time for me so I feel for you.
I take 2x 20mg omeprazole - one in the morning and one late afternoon, since about14 weeks (I'm 28w now). I still have bad days and I have a prescription for ondansetron which helps on those days, but that's more for sickness and stomach emptying than the heartburn I think.
Omeprazole here too. I was taking it anyway as I have reflux, but I've upped it to twice a day now. The relief! Just a warning- if I come off it for whatever reason and then resume the acid is awful for the first 24 hours or so. Then it settles and you can't feel it anymore. May just be my experience - but I'd hate you to stop straight away thinking it wasn't working.
For a cheap relief from acid reflux which works for me and was recommended by someone to me....Refreshers. Not great for my teeth I'm sure but Gaviscon liquid, tablets and any other antacid tablet makes me feel eugh. Eating some cheddar cheese helps too plus hot chocolate. Avoid fizzy drinks...I miss them so much but better for the baby I'm sure.
