Yes: Zantac (ranitidine) is a good drug to prevent acid reflux over time. It does not work immediately though. Tums are good for immediate relief of acid reflux but it does not help with long term prevention. Both are safe for use in pregnancy
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
