Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Acid Reflux?

Acid Reflux (commonly referred to as heartburn) is a common condition which is caused by acid travelling up the oesophagus, causing pain and discomfort. Acid Reflux treatment is an effective way to prevent or manage the symptoms of Acid Reflux and heartburn.

What Causes Acid Reflux?

The most common triggers for acid reflux are coffee, alcohol, chocolate, fatty and spicy foods, being overweight or obese, smoking, being pregnant, stress and NSAID painkillers (ex. ibuprofen, naproxen etc.)

How Can I Prevent Acid Reflux?

As well as taking Acid Reflux treatment you can prevent Acid Reflux by eating smaller meals more frequently, raise the head end of your bed 10 to 20cm to help prevent stomach acid travelling up, losing weight, reduce stress, reduce your alcohol intake, stop smoking and cutting down on caffeine.

What Are The Symptoms Of Acid Reflux?

The main symptoms of acid reflux are heartburn (a burning sensation in the middle of your chest), an unpleasant sour taste in your mouth, caused by stomach acid. You may also have a cough or hiccups that keep coming back, a hoarse voice, bad breath, bloating, and feeling sick. Your symptoms will probably be worse after eating, when lying down and when bending over. Most people will have suffered with acid reflux at one point or another, avoiding certain foods/drinks can be a good way to reduce the unpleasant symptoms. In other situations, there may be no obvious cause. Acid Reflux treatment can help with this.

What Medication Can I Use To Treat Acid Reflux?

There is a wide range of medication on the market used to treat acid reflux. You should start with simple antacid medication from your Pharmacy. If this is ineffective stronger tablets are available on prescription. See our Acid Reflux treatments page for all our treatment options. Simply choose a treatment and one of our experienced GPs will make sure this is safe for you to take.

As with all medication, there is always a possibility of side effects. These vary from one person to another. The most common side effect of acid reflux medication is diarrhoea and stomach upset. This is often temporary and goes away with time. Long term use of acid reflux medication should be avoided and your regular GP should be made aware you are using this, as with all medication.
