Check the wrap: It's very important to make sure the wrap is properly in place, especially if you are having fluid come up (called a "mechanical" symptom - the wrap has slipped, is too loose, or a hiatal hernia is present). An upper GI or EGD can see the problem. Taking an antacid doesn't change bile reflux but bile coming into your stomach can irritate the stomach and make it more susceptible to acid injury.

Not necessarily: These are important questions that you need ask your physician. You may be able to take these medicines at the regular time. It really depends on what is being treated, and your symptoms give us some clues but your physician who did the Nissan know you and can better individualize the advice
