What are some remedies for an acid reflux flare up?

Hi everyone I’m in so much pain I’m having an acid reflux flare up (which only just started in April I’m assuming from stress) I have been prescribed two medications that give me nasty side effects …tums aren’t working either is Pepto Bismol…it is currently 230 am, and I am in so much pain, and I’m exhausted…my chest hurts my throats on fire I keep burping acid, and my mouth is dry. What are the remedies that work for you! Please help I’m in so much pain…

Pepcid complete.
Baking soda.

If it’s already started, try and stay sitting up so gravity helps. Sleeping in a recliner helped during flare ups, and sleeping on my left side was usually pretty safe.

Pepcid complete i take in extreme flair situations for longterm i take 1 omeprazole over the counter every day. Nothing can touch me i also refrain from eating 2 hours before bed. Avoid crystaline sugars and anything with blue or green food dye :ok_hand:

Drink a big swallow of vinegar. I know it tastes bad but it will help.

Only thing that ever helped me was a slice or 2 of butter bread

I have severe reflux and vomiting. I find anything starchy helps a lot if you cant take meds . Mashed potatoes really works well to keep acid down
