Digetive enzymes: Acid indigestion usually indicates lack of pancreatic enzyme which leads to over-production of acid by the stomach to compensate. Add a good digestive enzyme with meals along with a potent daily probiotic to rebuild normal gut flora destroyed by over use of antibiotics. These should help.
