Hello and great to see the new Moderator here. I know you will do a splendid job.
I have had Gerd for 6-10 years, it start out as heartburn for which I ate Rolaids by the rolls at work. Finally started on Zantac but eventually prescribed Proton Pump Inhibitor, Prilosec. I use the Prilosec twice daily, in the AM and then at bedtime. I have to watch what I eat in late evening as dairy products will not set well and regurge.
GERD is a chronic problem and may need life long treatment to prevent relapses. If a person has been using antacids for more than 2 weeks, it is time to see a doctor.
Having a forum to come to and receive support as well as hear what others are doing is a wonderful opportunity. I read here frequently.
Any questions, just give a holler.
Gentle Hugs to all.
