Let me help you: Take antacids. In many cases, over-the-counter antacids offer instant relief from acid refluxmaylanta) use h2-blockers(prilosic and others...)relieve reflux symptoms within an hour. Sit up instead of lying down during an acid reflux attack. Avoid triggers (caffeine, alcoholic beverages and spicy foods). Good luck.
