I have/had awful reflux and heartburn from 5 weeks on up, I couldnt take it anymore, My ob put me on prevacid, and oh what bliss. it is perfectly safe to take in pregnancy, I would ask him about it.
I have been taking prilosec for a while.it helps a little bit. I take Gaviscon before I got to bed.I get the cool mint flavour,it usually hepls me sleep through the night.
I had intense heartburn my entire pg. It was one of my first pg symptoms. I took prilosec for most of my pg. My dr said it was okay to take and it hasn't had any adverse affects that I know of. My son was born 2/11/08 with no problems.
I too suffered from intense heartburn my Midwive put me on Pantoprazole a sub for protonix it works AWESOME,AWESOME,AWESOME with no side effects it is prescrption but Im telling you try it the other OTC **** dont work this is one pill a day and no heartburn whatsoever if you miss a day you still dont get heartburn
