Drink less soda!: :) soda isn't very healthy so that is not entirely a joke. Barring that, try drinking it slower and try an otc acid reducer like pepcid, Zantac (ranitidine) or prilosec.

Antacid: Normal, but can reduce this by chewing up a couple of antacid tablets (tums/rolaids/etc.).

Depends: You should talk to your doctor about this since this appears to be something more serious than just gastritis or acid reflux.
