I had a reflux problem even before meds. I took a rx med to help heal the esophagus and hubby used a couple 2x4 blocks to raise the head of our bed. THAT really has made a huge difference and I no longer require meds for it. But, like Lynnwood, I make sure all meds are swallowed at least 1/2 before lying down and I'll eat at least a small piece of bananca, or bread, or milk, or crackers.
Like Lynnwood said, make sure to address this as it can cause real damage to the esophagus.
