Night GERD attacks: You have greater symptoms of gerd at night as you as lying in pain, normally in a supine position. If you are consistently taking drugs similar to Prilosec (p), you should be symptom free with daily dosing. You may have severe gerd and my need to take twice a day. Speak to your physician about your problem.
