    Default Reflux despite being on meds

    I'm currently on Pariet and Zantac for reflux, however I am still suffering. I'm using Rennie's and Mylanta as well, but that burning in my throat is just blergh!

    Has anyone else dealt with the same?

    I took everything available without a script and it did nothing. You can get script meds though

    Both Pariet and Zantac are prescription meds.

    You don't need a prescription for Zantac, you can buy it at Coles and Woolworths.

    You poor thing - I had terrible reflux during pregnancy. Pariet was the only thing that actually worked for me (shame it's not effective for you )

    I hope someone can suggest something that works.

    Talk to your doc about nexium. It's a different prescription medication. Similar in action to pariet. It's supposed to decrease your acid production. At work we also give a disgusting concoction called a "pink lady" it's mylanta mixed with xylocaine viscous (not sure if that's prescription or not). It literally numbs your oesophagus to stop the burning. It tastes horrid (mylanta is mint flavoured and the xylocaine is strawberry), but it's super effective. Ask your doc about that one too.

    I'm on prescription Zantac, not just the stuff you buy off the shelf at the chemist.

    I went and saw my dr and he has put me on Nexium to replace Pariet.
