I hoped to give it up but a few months after the birth it came back. i think I have inherited my parents hiatus hernias as sometimes with white wine (excessive amounts) and spicy food it comes back.

glad I stockpiled it when on free prescriptions

i always suffer a small amount of heartburn, but when pregnant havew to have a bottle of gaviscon with me at all times. and its very very painful, and actually makes me sick some days. will be so glad to give up my perscription.

its one of the things that is making me dither over having another baby.

You can get it on PRESCRIPTION? Bloody hell I spent a small fortune on it when pg

The Extra was the only one that worked for me

jane313 Fri 18-Feb-05 20:18:02

ooh i never tried extra. I thought I had samples the whole range! I bet is nor recommended for preganant women by the time I have another baby
