Medical professionals will sometimes recommend a change of lifestyle and eating habits, before they prescribe. However, when patients have tried the lifestyle changes, and still suffer from Acid Reflux, medical intervention may be required. A medical professional is most likely to prescribe one of the following, as these are the most common treatments after lifestyle changes have failed to solve the problem.
The prescription choice very much depends on the patients individual history and the specifics of their condition:
• Histamine antagonists, such as Tagamet
• Proton Pump Inhibitors, such as Prilosec
• Pro-Motility drugs, such as Reglan
As always, consult your medical profession in the first instance.
