I am a sufferer of both GERD and IBS-D, I used to live on Pepto for both. Anytime I would get any type of acid or IBS symptoms I would take a dose. Upon going to my doctor I was told to not use this and to seek alternate ways of controlling both. Pepto is not good for your intestinal track is what I was told. Some things that have helped me with my GERD is: eating small meals, eating at least 2 hours prior to bed and remain sitting up for the 2 hours, cutting back on caffeine intact, watching my diet by cutting out spicy food and greasy foods. Also I keep a basic Acid Reducer on hand, nothing special but I will take one every once in a while if I can't get my GERD to calm down. I was put on Nexium for a trial and if you can afford it and your GERD is pretty bad then I highly recommend it. My symptoms vanished within the first couple of days, but it is very expensive so I would check with your insurance company. I hope this helped and I hope you start feeling better.
HiHas anyone tried this ?..did it work?Fiona
