25 Sep 2011 I have taken several prescribed and OTC Mede for GERD with little success. The only action that has resulted in relief has been weight loss.

02 Jun 2010 AcipHex does not work at all. My acid reflux is not better when I take it. I had to switch to a different medication because it did not help my acid reflux.
