  • A guide to heartburn survival | Healthy Essentials from Johnson & Johnson Inc.
    re not sure keep a personal log If you know what s triggering your heartburn you can avoid the triggers altogether Or be quick with treatment WHAT CAN YOU DO The best way to deal with heartburn is to make lifestyle changes that can help you avoid the obvious triggers But avoiding heartburn isn t always possible You can t always predict what will trigger your heartburn Some situations simply can t be avoided And maybe you just don t want to resist the foods you love THE TREATMENTS Until now most Canadians treated everyday heartburn with either an antacid or an acid reducer Or both Antacid An antacid works at neutralizing the existing stomach acid The biggest benefit of an antacid is that it goes to work fast But it s biggest problem is acid continues to be produced So you ll probably find yourself re dosing again and again Acid Reducer An acid reducer or acid controller such as PEPCID AC Acid Controller controls the production of acid for as much as 12 hours It can also be effective when taken in advance to prevent heartburn altogether For instance before you re going out for a spicy dinner Some people say however that acid reducers may take a bit longer to initially relieve the discomfort of heartburn There are quite a few people who will take both antacids and an acid reducer to treat the same bout of heartburn However there s now an alternative If you want the benefit of fast heartburn relief but you don t want to keep re dosing you ll probably find a heartburn remedy like PEPCID COMPLETE Antacid Acid Reducer to be very effective PEPCID COMPLETE is the first and only heartburn treatment that combines the speed of an antacid with the 12 hour acid control of an acid controller This means you only have to take one dose of medicine So it s a good alternative to taking both antacids and acid reducers PEPCID COMPLETE is also good for the occasional heartburn flare ups that can happen if you re on a heartburn medication MORE STRATEGIES FOR SURVIVAL If you want to minimize the effect of heartburn there are simple habit changes you can make For instance Slow down when eating and don t overeat Avoid foods and beverages that cause heartburn these can include hot and spicy foods coffee soft drinks and other beverages with caffeine citrus foods and juices tomato products such as salsa onions chocolate and alcohol If you smoke stop or try to cut back Watch your weight Wear loose fitting clothes Don t lie down after meals Avoid late night snacks Elevate the head of your bed Minimize stress in your life CAUTION FOR ALL MEDICATION USE It is important to remember that if your heartburn doesn t go away you may have a more serious problem If you find you need heartburn medications for more than two consecutive weeks talk to your doctor And always

    in the morning Consider doing your morning walk in the evening Save outdoor chores for later in the day Be prepared During allergy season you can check for pollen counts on the Weather Network online or on TV or during your local television weather forecast If the pollen count is high or if the conditions are windy consider spending your day indoors Spring clean In addition to your annual basement sweep take pollen reducing precautions When you have been outside for any extended period of time take a shower wash your hair and change your clothes If you can t take a shower rinse your nose and eyes if you have eye symptoms with water saline solution if that s handy Don t wear the same clothes again until you ve washed them in hot water And speaking of cleaning clothes don t dry them outside you ll only bring pollen back into the house and closer to you Keep the air clean in your home It may be tempting to let the fresh spring air into your home but it s better for your allergies if you keep doors and windows shut Use air conditioning at home and in your car Aerosol sprays and tobacco smoke can make allergy symptoms worse so avoid these in the home Enjoy the April showers Not everyone enjoys the rain but the wet weather causes pollen to become damp and heavy making pollen less likely to move around and more likely to stay on the ground Allergy symptoms are often less severe on rainy days so find an activity you can do in the rain Holding an umbrella may be more tolerable than constant sneezing and nasal congestion Source s McNeil Consumer Healthcare division of Johnson Johnson Inc 2010 RELATED COUPONS RELATED ARTICLES
