Acid Reflux

Acid reflux, also known as heartburn, is a common condition that involves the movement of stomach acid up into the chest, which causes an unpleasant and uncomfortable burning in the chest.

Symptoms may typically be worse after eating, when bending over or when lying down.

Pharmacy Online has a range of gastro-resistant tablets to help alleviate symptoms of acid reflux.

Causes

Acid reflux can be triggered by many things, such as:

  • Stress and anxiety
  • Alcohol
  • Spicy foods
  • Smoking
  • Certain medications such as ibuprofen

Treatments

Acid reflux can usually be managed by eating smaller meals, not smoking, and avoiding large amounts of alcohol.

However, if you find that self-management and over the counter treatments aren’t working for you, you should speak to a member of our team for long term management of your symptoms.
