My husband and I suffer from acid reflex and heart burn about three to four times a week. When we do have these flare ups, we often try to take over the counter medication. The one that we both find helps us tremendously is Rolaids.
There are different kinds if styles and flavors but we prefer the softchews- Wild Cherry. They not only taste better but they seem to be easier to chew and swallow then the others.
If you don't like Wild Cherry then you can also use Vanilla or Fruit Punch. This product is a decent price and you get 3 packs of chews (about six per pack). The sticks can be stored anywhere and can be taken on trips. They are easy to store in your purse, pocket, desk, and even your backpack. I keep them at my desk as well as in the car and my purse for easy access.
