If you've been issued a prescribed medication why do you want to come off it ?

sipping milk can help, couple of drops of tabasco sauce in it makes it work faster, peppermint is also said to be effective but I have never tried it.

Apple cider vinegar, the raw unfiltered kind. Start off slowly, like one tablespoon in a glass of water and rinse your mouth after drinking it.

re: heartburn. I don't suppose you failed to check the Internet. There are all kinds. You might want to seek a Doctor, Or better yet, for a temporary fix find a Pharmacist.

[@380583,Carla1951] he's taking medication which means he's seen a doctor. Some of the prescriptions are doing serious damage to health.

If you smoke or drink alcohol those can contribute to GERD. I know someone who stopped both this year and then was diagnosed as a diabetic and he got off of sugar and grains, no more GERD and no need to take medications diet and lifestyle has a lot to do with GERD. Cooking oils too, if you eat deep-fried foods it's likely the oil has been used many times and it causes free-radical damage in the body because the oil alters after it's reused, it can damage DNA.

[@441215,Pantyman31] Second-hand smoke can contribute too, but if you aren't dealing with that maybe diet. A lot of health problems are caused by the SAD (standard American diet) diet.

yes I don't eat the healthiest I will admit[@16806,cherokeepatti]

[@441215,Pantyman31] That'll do it. Have you checked the side effects of your medication? It might motivate you to clean up your diet.

I don't think anything can take the place of a prescription, nothing else is strong enough.

In the past I had some success with ginger. You can cook with it, just slice it and eat it, or chop it up and make something like tea with it. Canada Dry has a little real ginger in it as well.

In a pinch I might put a tablespoon of baking soda in a cold glass of water and drink that. It helped.

There wasn't anything that really got rid of it without a prescription, but both of those helped.
