1/2 teaspoon baking soda to 1/2-1 cup of water. Works almost immediately.

That's good to know for future reference. I haven't had heartburn since the doc put me on Nexium. What an amazing pill. :D

It's basically tums

nexium is amazing stuff, but if you don't want to pay for it use rolaids or tums. i prefer rolaids, but i use both

Protonix (perscription only)

zantac or pepcid AC, which I pretty much take daily at this point.

prilosec doesn't touch me, neither did pepcid or zantac, nexium is the only thing that works prescription, but rolaids is easier for me to use. and i can use it for flareups

I take nexium daily, but if I get bad case of heartburn I hit the zantac.

Before Nexium, I was on prescription Zantac. Did nothing. Maybe the stress was too much. Rolaids and Tums are good for about 1-2 minutes of relief for me. I didn't start getting heartburn until about 3 years ago. Doc says I am PTSD. :D :shrug:
