What can I do if my doctor prescribed Nexium for acid reflux, but i really hate taking drugs. Any suggestions?
Nexium a great med.: Can certainly try bland diet & avoid acid containg or producing foods & beverages & raise head of your bed. Avoid smoking, caffeine containing beverages, fried & fatty foods.
