Have GERD Is ranitidine better than Nexium (esomeprazole) and Pepcid to help take away burning stuck feeling in throat.

Have GERD Is ranitidine better than Nexium (esomeprazole) and Pepcid to help take away burning stuck feeling in throat.

There is no one best: Medication for GERD. the best med will be the one that you & your doc find helps you the best, with the fewest side effects. ranitidine is an H2 blocker, as is pepcid; while nexium (esomeprazole) is a "PPI" or proton pump inhibitor. it seems unlikely, that if a PPI + an H2 blocker is not fully effective now, that an H2 blocker alone (ranitidine) would be effective.
