Bile reflux: Unfortunately bile reflux often doesn't respond to the same treatments used for acid reflux, but it's still worthwhile to try them as both conditions may coexist. . Bile reflux has been treated with a medication called URSO or by surgery. I recommend consulting a gastroenterologist with special interest and experience with bile reflux and it's treatment.
