Try an otc PPI: THere are now over the counter (OTC) Proton pump inhibitors (PPI) medications that can help out with acid reflux. They do not require a prescription. You can try over the counter omeprazole (Prilosec) or esomeprazole (Nexium)

Prilosec or prevacid (lansoprazole): Gerd responds better to protons pump inhibitors than to antacids . Standard gerd precautions are helpful
