Cure Your Heartburn With Acid Reflux Medicine - Articles Surfing

If you are unfortunate enough to suffer from heartburn then you no doubt already know that you are in desperate need of some form of medication to relieve you from the horrible symptoms. It's not as difficult as task as you would imagine, actually all you need to do is take a trip to your local drugstore (legitimate one!) and you will be astounded by how many different medicines there are available to prevent reflux.

There are lots of different forms of acid reflux medicine that can relieve sufferers of acid reflux, each drug works in a different way, and their effectiveness differs for different people. If you suffer from serious effects of acid reflex then these drugs may make little difference.

Antacids can be used to treat mild forms or acid reflux, there are also stronger drugs such as Riopan. Most people prefer to take a liquid antacid medication rather than tablets, either type of antacid need to be taken between 30 and 60 minutes after you eat.

Doctors advise sufferers of heartburn to avoid eating certain foods and drinking certain drinks, these are thought to trigger acid reflux in certain people. Doctors advice you to avoid chocolate, tomatoes, both of which relax the LES muscle, increasing the chances of acid reflux.

There are acid reducers which are known as histamine receptor blockers, these are drugs that work on the stomach acid directly. Proton-Pump inhibitors actually work by limiting the production of stomach acid, therefore preventing any excess acid moving back up the oesophagus.

Some acid reflux medicine can change how the lower esophageal sphincter muscle operates by making sure that it closes much more tightly, druchs such as prokinetic and motility work in this way. Drug therapy can be used to resolve any inflamination of the oesophagus.

There are surgical options for acid reflux sufferes to consider however these are only normally available to sufferers whose disorder has not been solved with the use of medication. Only around a quarter of the people that suffer from acid reflux actually require surgery. The surgical procedure is not very invasive, it is carried out through tiny holes to prevent excessive trauma.

Tiny instruments are also inserted into the holes to correct the problems by creating a new valve. This procedure is known as Laparoscopic nissen Fundoplication.

Not everybody needs this but surgery can provide acid reflux sufferers with another option if acid reflux medicine fails to work.
