Ok, I am fine for sometime taking my protonix, but I would like to go back to prevacid as I felt more results.  Last evening I woke up with heartburn....I sleep with three pillows.  Today, I feel like I need to burp....that feeling of something stuck, but nothing is. 
What do you all do for this crap?

I bought a wedge pillow plus I put 3 pillows on top of thats...seems to help a little. Also maybe you can try DGL (licorice), I take it as needed. I also take prilosec 2x a day and that works for me....although if I drink coffee I sometimes start feeling that lump in the throat.

I pretty much gave up a lot of food triggers and changed my lifestyle and that helped.

Hope this works for you.

I have always read that you need to elevate your actual bed..not use pillows...that pillows can make it worse?
