My doctor wants me to try this. I have it, but have resisted because it causes constipation and I wanted to try and natural way before meds, but I think I'm going to start taking it.

Anyone ever taken it for GERD, esophagitis and did it help?

I took it some time ago and it did help but it was so hard to get down as they were big pills and for some reason just did not go down right. I had to coat them with butter for them to slide down. I think I had to take if before I ate as I remember and I forgot a lot of time. It is mostly used for gastritis more than GERD, I think. They were constipating. You could just try Maalox Max about an hour after you eat and see if that helps. I think it has a new name now but it seems to help me.
