Hi, new to your board. Was diagnosed with reflux last Dec. & don't know if I was having a flare up or if melatonin was causing the heartburn, have been on Nexium off & on since then. It did say on the bottle of melatonin that it can cause GI discomfort so I really don't know, trouble is I have terrible insomnia & this is the only thing that helped. Talked to my GI doc & he doesn't seem real concerned. If anybody can help I'd appreciate it, Thanks
