Antacids: It takes a while for this to work. Take an antacid, a liquid antacid my help coat your esophagus. Do not take any pill within 30 minutes of taking a dose or for an hour after a dose of it. Generic liquid antacids can taste truly hideous. This is one time when Brand Names are definitely better.
