If these lifestyle modifications dont' work...you should try over-the-counter H2 blockers (Tagamet-cimetidine, Zantac
-ranitidine, Pepcid-famotidine, or Axid-nixatidine). Begin by taking 1 pill, if this doesn't work after 1/2-1 hour, go ahead and take another pill...if both of these don't work, then see your MD, who can prescribe stronger medications called 'proton pump inhibitors.' these include Prilosec, Prevacid, Aciphex, Protonix, and Nexium.
Hope this helps,
