DGL is used to: help with acid reflux and is safe. If you take licorice that is not DGL, over time it can raise your blood pressure. Please consult w/your doc. Peace and good health. You need to take a lot of it for DGL to be effective.

Yes but: If you have been taken Nexium prior to breakfast and still not getting relief with Ranitidine in the evening, it is time to consult a GI specialist.

Yes: yes, but see your doctor because the other medications should be treating your problem. If not, then something else may be going on.

Yes you can: You take anything will help. Anti-acids (mylanta). Sit down if you lying down.
