    I've had acid reflux a few times before but had it REALLY bad last night from about 2am until 8.30am and I can't face that every night! Does anyone know if there anything I can take or anything I can do (or avoid doing!) to help with it? xx

    I usually drink a bit of milk before bed and have some rennie even when I don't have it!

    The doctor can prescribe something - I've just been very lazy and not been to get any!

    I always drink milk at around 4 or 5pm as I tend to get it before dinner. It really does help!
    I also keep a big bottle of gaviscon on the bedside table and have it before going to bed and in the night if I need it. You can take it up to 4 times during the day but I wouldn't even worry about needing to take more to be honest. There's nothing harmful in it. Hope you find some relief soon! :)

    I always take a ranitidine with a big glass of milk before bed and that tends to do the trick for me - you can get rantidine in the chemist or your doctor can prescribe it and then its free :)

    Thanks ladies! I'll get hubby to pick up some supplies of gaviscon and rennies on his way home tonight.

    Hmm....the glass of orange juice I was swigging on through the night probably wasn't helping then - oops!!
