Xanax and Heartburn

I got off Nexium a few months ago and experienced some rebound reflux. I'm doing okay now though.
I was prescribed Xanax, which I've taken before, but now heard that it can cause heartburn, especially at night.
Does anyone know if you take it during the day does it cause heartburn? or is it only when used as a sleep aid sometime before bed?

Thank you.

Nope, Xanax. I was just saying how I'm trying to avoid heartburn, being off Nexium and all.  But, nevermind, I looked it up and found out Xanax does wear away the area where the stomach meets the esophagus.
