What can help acid reflux besides Nexium?

I take two tablets of Nexium daily plus one Zantac 75 but I still have indigestion most of the time. My doctor tells me to stop drinking and eating certain foods, which I try to do. Has anybody out there found how to reduce the feelings of acid reflux/indigestion? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    I have been suffering from painful acid reflux symptoms that doctors found difficult to diagnose. Needless to say, pills and antacids didn’t cure me and the relief was temporary and sometimes insignificant.

    I was prescribed Lansoprazole which was brilliant but after two years of aching joints, extreme muscle pain which the doc gave me cortisone jags for, with some research I discovered the drug Lansoprazole was causing these rare side effects but it was I who diagnosed it NOT my doctor, I came off the drug 2 months ago, changed my diet and discovered just eating an apple stops any acid reflux, I eat an apple before bed, brilliant no acid, any time I feel the slightest sign of reflux I simply eat an apple.

    Apple juice is not that good nor is anything else I have tried including honey at stopping reflux.

    I immediately started applying the principals in the book and for the first time in more than a decade I felt a significant improvement and in such a short time too. I was always so skeptical about the all-natural approach but you made me a believer. As we speak I feel awesome and at the peak of my health. I have never felt so vigor and alive https://tr.im/LiveWithoutAcidReflux

    Chronic heartburn is usually from acid reflux - stomach acid is getting past the little valve and into your esophagus. You also should know some natural ways to treat your heartburn. Learn them here

    The most immediate thing you can do is to stop drinking coffee and cola. Smoking is not good either, but that might be harder to stop. Don't over-eat. Don't lie down too soon after eating. Don't burp too much - this carries acid up with the burp.

    Hello, greasy and spicy foods actually have very little to do with it. Your stomach can take those quite well. Chronic heartburn is usually from acid reflux - stomach acid is getting past the little valve and into your esophagus. https://tr.im/CureYourAcidReflux

    The most immediate thing you can do is to stop drinking coffee and cola. Smoking is not good either, but that might be harder to stop. Don't over-eat. Don't lie down too soon after eating. Don't burp too much - this carries acid up with the burp.

    You also should know some natural ways to treat your heartburn. Learn them here:

    I take two Prilosec OTC in the morning and this works for me. I have severe GERD and was having heartburn all day even though I was taking the meds. My Dr said that I needed to take two opposed to one dose and it is working. Nexium and Zantac did not work for me. Talk to your Dr about switching meds.

    aciphex works for me. Nexium did nothing. The only problem is you may have to pay a higher copay because it does not have a generic.
