If you think that your heartburn may be caused by a medicine:
Call the doctor who prescribed the medicine before you take the next dose to find out if you should stop taking the medicine or take a different one. There also may be certain ways or times of the day to take your other medicines that will decrease the chance of getting heartburn. An appointment may not be needed.
If you are taking a medicine that was not prescribed by a doctor, stop taking it. Call your doctor if you feel that you need to continue taking the medicine or need help controlling your symptoms.
