    Default Heartburn, heartburn, heartburn

    Ok. Surely there has to be a solution that will actually work.
    I'm on Zantac every 12 hours, and also having the Mylanta chewable tablets intermittently throughout the day.
    I'm still completely struggling and sleeping (as much as i can) sitting up.
    Does anyone use anything else that will work?

    I find the quick-eze chewable ones are the best for me.Mainly because they're the ones I can actually swallow without gagging...

    But nothing works completely...

    The gaviscon chewable ones work quite well I've found, especially if I just suck on it and let it dissolve slowly.
    Also found another suggestion when I searched through old posts of fruit tingles and these help a little...

    I had horrible indigestion throughout my whole second pregnancy. All the antacids you can buy barely offer any relief.
    If it gets really bad you can try mixing a bit of bi-carb into a glass of water and drinking it.
    Lie only on your left side and avoid foods that typically cause indigestion.

    My Obstetrician prescribed Parriet during my pregnancy...it was expensive...about $30 a fortnight, I think...but it worked a treat...pregnancy heartburn is seriously painful and debilitating. See your GP, or preferably an OB.

    Goodluck

    Btw, I had the same experience as Harvestmoon, it did not matter what I ate or what non prescription remedies I tried...only the prescribed medication worked for me.

    Omeprazole (losec)!!! Worked wonders for me. Expensive over the counter but not bad with a script. Can also have Zantac with it if it isn't enough

    Thanks guys!
    I should've read these replies before i went to the pharmacy! Just got home with double strength mylanta chewables.
    I have the doctor tomorrow so i'll see if she can prescribe parriet or similar.
