    I am taking Prilosec, 2 pills each time, twice for the first week, then once everyday for the past two months.

    I usually drink milk at night, tea during day time. so long as I keep something in my stomach, never sleep with empty stomach, everything seems fine. I used to drink a lot of soda, now I cut down a lot. keep the food as less sweet or acidic as possible.

    I have heard great things about aloe vera juice; 2ounces in the am and the same in the pm. You can get it at the health food store or online. Some prople can stop thier reflux meds all together.

    Have you tried the natural remedies of slippery elm bark and marshmallow (herb, not candy). These both coat the entire digestive tract and may help you be less dependant on expensive drugs.
