When I have acid reflux, should I vomit to get it out?

When I have acid reflux, should I vomit to get it out?

Get checked out!: You are assuming you have reflux. Our brain can't tell the difference in painful signals from heart, esophagus, stomach, duodenum, liver, pancreas, bile ducts of liver, or gallbladder. So 'acid reflux' could be illnesses of any of those organs. A good doctor will ask questions like what brings it on, makes it worse/better, how long it lasts, associated problems. See dr. & make sure! ...Read more

I used to vomit after drinking milk or food with milk acid reflux they said what should I do? What medicine should I take?

My baby is 11 weeks old, acid reflux, similac spit up for 5 weeks now. She has been vomiting curdled milk for 2 weeks now. Help!

It's normal: As soon as milk hits the acid in the stomach it curdles and smells terrible, but if your baby is happy, growing and has soft poops she doesn't need any medicine or a change in formula. It is only when babies are in pain from spitting up that we give antacid medicine and unfortunately it does not stop them from spitting up. Sitting her up for a half hour after she eats and burping well does help. ...Read more

Second- acid reflux can be controlled with antacids and anti acid medications like ranitidine and omeprazole. Reflux laryngitis is inflammation (irritation) of the throat from GERD. Gargle with salt water to soothe the discomfort and "clean" the back of the mouth if you are concerned. Give it time too ...Read more

After I eat a meal I have regurgitation. It isn't vomit but like spit up. Happens pretty fast after I eat. I have acid reflux. Is that what this is?

I would recommend that you adopt anti-reflux measures, including avoiding foods which bring on your symptoms, caffeine, alcohol, and chocolate. Consider tilting your bed. You should see your doctor to begin anti-reflux medication. Good luck. ...Read more

My 2 yr old takes prevacid (lansoprazole) for acid reflux be still don't eat well or gain weight. Since she's medicated she wouldn't spit up/vomit right?

Reflux re evaluation: There is still a possibility for the reflux to continue. Symptoms include pain during or after eating, vomiting, spitting up. Aspiration of stomach contents into the airway may cause cough, respiratory illness and congestion for example. As she gains weight, the dose may need to be adjusted.

Freq. Nausea/acid reflux w/out vomiting (not preg) Dr. Could be PMS, put on birth control. Regular labs normal. Could this be the cause? Need relief!

For that reason a trial of OTC Omeprazole or lansoprazole along with lifestyle changes should help us understand if that is all that' s needed. If that is not the case will know that we have to look for a different cause. Keeping a log of your symptoms would help in this case. ...Read more
