Avoid all food for at least 2-3 hours before bedtime and try to stack your pillows up and sleep on an incline.

I avoid food before bed time but still getting lpr symptom in the morning.

Try to arrange your pillows so that you can comfortably sleep with at an angle where your throat, upper chest and shoulders are higher than your stomach.

Mark Collins
You will need to raise the head of your entire bed at least 6 inches. The pillows don't generally work effectively.

I used to and still on occasion, take half a tums before bed. Of course if you can get to the root cause of your gerd during the day you will sleep better at night. I use probiotics and enzymes and my difficulties are greatly reduced

Safiah Al-masri
Thank you Elizabeth ... but is (tums)? Thank you.

Elizabeth Rudd Greene
tums are not probiotics or enzymes, if that is what you are asking. Tums is an antacid. I would only take them at night, after my stomach was finished digesting food.

Elizabeth Rudd Greene
reflux is often produced when undigested food produces gas which pushes acid up the esophagus. digestive enzymes with your food cause that less gas is produced. Start also digestive probiotics, because bacteria deep in the intestinal tract also help digest your food. I have found Nature Made digestive Probiotics to be particularly helpful for gas and bloating. I also take an anti candida med.

Thank you Elizabeth Rudd Greene but I want drop down medicine I used to take them 😣.

Elizabeth Rudd Greene can you please tell me .. are you using this digestive enzymes on daily basis ? And how many time you use them? Did you get any stomach pain as side effects? My reflux appears at night when I lay down you think this product will help me?

I find a light snack gives the acid something to do rather than try to eat me lol.

Safiah Al-masri
You are absolutely right. even my doctor said that.. but some times I feel I can not eat because of nausea.

your teeth before going to bed. Toothpaste neutralizes the acid in your mouth.

Guru Prasath PK
Thats sounds great. Tooth paste is basic.

Lynn Farrington
Price Gaviscon Advance before you lay down is supposed to put a plug over the valve. So don't have anything at all after talking it.

Melissa Luttrell
Raise the head of your bed six inches. Makes a huge difference. And it only takes a couple nights to get used to. Lay on your left side. Stomach is on the left, so acid will stay down better.

Bagheera Paan
I use a toothpaste with baking soda in it to brush my teeth before bed and take gaviscon advance. Really helps me

Aaron Phillips
Take a pepto and sit up.

Stacking pillows won’t cut it. You need to incline the head of your bed 6-8 inches.

Jan Nelson
You may need to put a pillow under your knees if you sleep on an incline.
