My mom has this really bad heart burn that doesn’t go away. She tried a lot of heartburn medications but none seems to appease her pain. The doctors all said she was normal but the burning persists. Whats the best medication if not. . A way to get rid of it? Details plz? Thanks. Well, I have your answer right here. If you have it right now try chewing a bunch of Tums till it seems better. That is what I used to do in that immediate situation. In the long run you can do better. Over the next several days start taking Prilosec OTC. You take it every day or every other day and in about four days it has cut back on your stomach’s acid production. As long as you stick with it you will not have any further heartburn. That is what I did to get persistent relief. I haven’t had heartburn for a year or two, ever since my doctor got me onto Prilosec.
