Hi,
PPI are the best medications to treat acid reflux. There are five PPI approved by FDA- Prilosec, Protonix, Aciphex, Nexium and Prevacid.
Lifestyle modifications also needed to achieve good relief.
Lifestyle modifications -
1. Head elevation while sleeping
2. Small frequent meals
3. Going to bed 2- 3 hours after food
4. Avoiding bed time snacks
5. Avoiding smoking and alcohol
6. Avoiding tight fitting clothes
7. Avoiding cola, citrus drinks, carbonated drinks, tea, coffee, spicy food
8. Weight reduction
