Is she taking medication just to treat her symptoms after eating or is she on a "maintenance" type medication?  If she's not on a "maintenance" type medication, I would suggest asking her doctor about a PPI (proton pump inhibitor) type medication such as Prilosec, Nexium, Prontix and Prevacid.  These types of medications help reduce the amount of acid that the stomach produces.  They are taken on a daily basis - not just when symptoms occur.  Sometimes another medication is needed if symptoms occur even with the PPI, such as something like Tums or Rolaids.

The stomach will always produce acid - it has to in order for us to be able to digest our food - but these types of medications help to cut down on the AMOUNT of acid produced, so we don't get the miserable signs and symptoms of hyper acidity such as pain, nausea, heartburn, etc.

If she is not seeing a gastro doctor presently, I would suggest that she go see one and talk to them about the possible use of a PPI.  In the meantime, she may want to try staying away from caffeine, spicy foods, chocolate and anything else that she notices gives her more problems.

Best of luck!
