GERD Relief: If you have already tried antacids, I would recommend any of the drugs in the H2 blocker class (Zantac or Pepcid) generics are available. PPIs such as Nexium (esomeprazole) and Prilosec work great but they have side effects that should not be overlooked. Also, consider the causes of GERD which can be related to diet, and lifestyle. Drugs are really not for chronic use w/o a doctor's supervision.
