Reflux: What Do You Take To Tame The Burn?



Recommended Posts

As we all know, some of us get a touch of reflux after being sleeved. I am happen to be one of those lucky sleevers!

What do you take for reflux? What has worked best if you have tried multiple medications/treatments.

(I have a little secret...I have been drinking coffee and I heard that is a no/no...so starting tomorrow, I will skip my daily cup or two of coffee to see if that helps.)

I was taking Prevacid Solutab, which worked wonderfully, but they are way to expensive (my insurance doesn't cover it). I am currently taking Zegrid. Not really doinig the job, so I am turning to my VSG Community for some insight! ;0)

I take generic Prevacid daily and I too drink coffee which gives me terrible heartburn so I take a Zantac in the later morning and that helps the acid exacerbated by my coffee. Good luck.

I definitely think I am going to get back on the Prevacid (just not the solutabs). It worked wonders for me!!!

So, the Zantac and the Prevacid can be taken together? I can do that! I love my coffee, so hard to give it up! It is my worst vice right now!

I'm a coffee drinker and I take one 40 mg Protonix daily. I've had NO problems with reflux or any acid since I've been on it. Little warning though - if you get drug tested at work it gives a false THC reading :rolleyes:

My reflux was so bad I went to the ER the other night. My surgeon gave me an Rx for Pepcid and nausea meds. I have to take 2 Pepcid every eight hours and nausea meds when needed. I can't eat because everything burns except Popsicles and Peanut Butter. Since I can't eat anything I feel like the acid gets worse. I don't know how long I can take this. Any suggestions on acid friendly foods?

I would stay with crackers and the bland stuff for now. dairy products trend to trigger my reflux also, so I try to stay away from it.

Msgee33, The key is doing what's best for you. As stated, bland foods are good, maybe! That's if it work for u! Bland foods can work bc it slightly work for me. It's on you and how your body works!

I skipped the coffee today and seem to be feeling a little better. I am beginning to believe that coffee is the heartburn culprit for me.

I've been struggling with heartburn, too. I'm 2 months out. How long will this awful heartburn continue? Forever?

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
