Heather (and everyone else )...
Remember when you mentioned that you'd read Apple Cider Vinegar mixed with water would help heartburn? Well, even though I didn't believe it, I tried it anyway a few days ago because I was in serious pain and I stand corrected: it definitely worked, at least for a while! I'd say it was slightly more effective or about equal to a couple Tums, but good to have on back-up in case I'm at my daily allowance of Tums. Doesn't taste great though
Anyone else have a great heartburn remedy?
I haven't tried it yet. I get this burping thing which I'm not 100% is even heartburn...but it sucks. I had it several times last night. I should try this next time.
What are your heartburn symptoms?
They gave me liquid Maalox when I was in the hospital in the antipartum ward, that was 8 years ago so things may have changed but it worked for me then

Eating salt and vinegar chips is less vile than swallowing vinegar and works as well. My nursing friends say to eat them and sip flat Coke. The combo is supposed to affect acid levels in your stomach.
Ice cream does it for me. Milkshakes are even better.
I just started prescription Prilosec but I am wondering why since everything I read says it takes as long as eight weeks to really work?
tums usually does the trick but lately im finding myself having to retake them during the day and even sometimes in the middle of the night when i get up to pee. I've trying to take zantac 75mg in the morning before i eat breakfast and that helped the other day never got it..also i notice when im starting to get hungry is when the heartburn kicks in so i try to eat something small before breakfast/lunchtime
Mine is the worst at night too. My heartburn basically feels like I'm very slowly throwing up and my throat burns up higher and higher. It's really great with this sore throat I picked up from my kids too
I did liquid Maalox with both of my other pregnancies but Tums is doing an adequate job this time, at least good enough that I can fall asleep, but if I wake up to pee or something, I have to pop a few more.
