Only when greasy: It would be the fat in popcorn which worsens reflux and not the popcorn per se unless you are eating buckets of them at a time. Smaller meals usually work better.

Is Zantac (ranitidine) 75 good for acid reflux?

Zantac (ranitidine) and GERD: Hi yes, if it works. But, please do not continue using this drug if your symptoms persist or worsen. The goal is to be wise about diet and exercise and weight and the types of calories you consume so that you do not have gerd at your young age that persists month after month. Cigarrettes, chocolate, red wine and caffeine can all make gerd worse.

My baby is milk allergic, and she has acid reflux. What kind of formula would be good to use?

My baby is milk allergic, and she has acid reflux. What kind of formula would be good to use?

Check with doc first: If she truly has milk allergies, you may want to check with doc about using elemental formula such as nutramigen or alimentum etc...Soy is also an option, but I would check with her doc first. These may help with her reflux as well. If not, med such as Prevacid or Zantac (ranitidine) can be used for reflux etc. Thickening formular with rice cereal may help also. Consult doc...Good luck.

My acid reflux problems are bothering me so much that I can't get to sleep at night. What are some good ways to treat this?

Medication: See your doctor about 'proton pump inhibitors'. They reduce the production of stomach acid (they are available otc). Don't eat within the 90 minutes before bedtime. Avoid alcohol at night. Take an antacid before retiring, with a glass of water. Use pillows to elevate the head.

I have got a lot of acid reflux but one good thing food not getting stuck had for a couple weeks how long before it settles down bit of chest discomfo?

I have got a lot of acid reflux but one good thing food not getting stuck had for a couple weeks how long before it settles down bit of chest discomfo?

Suggest endoscopy: I am glad to hear that food is no longer getting stuck. This symptom is known as dysphagia. Given your age, I would still recommend an endoscopy (EGD) to ensure that you do not have a stricture or other long term injury to your esophagus. Barrett's esophagus and possibly esophageal cancer are concerns in your age group. GERD can often be chronic, and you may need lifelong medications as well.
