Heartburn Gone...Woot Woot!

For anyone with awful heartburn, talj to your Doctor!! Tums and Gaviscin did nothing for me. I would have a constant burning bile feeling all the way up into my mouth for months now. I couldnt sleep for it waking me and making me sick and just lived miserably with it until I finally mentioned it to my Dr. Right away she gave me a cheap prescription for Apo-Ranitidine. It is baby safe, I take it twice a day in 150 mg tiny pills....and thank you to the powers that be...I am no longer suffering.
I just wanted to share for the girls who are tormented with heartburn like I was. Talk to your Dr, and be saved. Lol :P

I will have to agree with this post. Tums weren't working and I was being woke up from the heartburn. My grandma (who is a nurse) told me about the medication your doctor told you about and it has saved me. It works extremely well!!

Ive been taking rhiditine since I was about 6 weeks preggo bc I had severe acid reflux before I was pregnant. I still have some pain but I have a high tolerance to meds.  But still nothing in comparison to what it was. When I hit about 12 weeks I tried going without it...it came back in full swing! So I guess it works more than I thought!!
