Patient Comments: Heartburn - Treatment

What treatments have you tried to relieve your heartburn?

Comment from: Cathy, 65-74 (Patient) Published: September 25

I have used Gaviscon on a regular basis and many antacids but they did not help. I am now on Nexium, 40mg once a day. I have been on this treatment for six years now, and it helps quite a bit. Now I have severe attacks of pain from the stomach up into my jaw and radiating into my back.
