10 Tips to Ease Heartburn Triggered by Medications

If you take medications that cause heartburn, try these tips from experts for relief.

Call Your Doctor or Pharmacist If:

  • You have heartburn from any medication you're taking.
  • Your symptoms aren't relieved, no matter what you do.
  • You're taking more of a heartburn treatment than the package directs to try to get relief.

Remember: Never stop taking any medication without first talking with your doctor. And hold onto hope: most people do find relief from heartburn with patience and persistence.
