I have nights where my Zantac doesn't work and I have to take Mylanta as well. Does this happen to anyone else?

Sometimes, but not very often I take Gaviscon which is similar to Mylanta. Gaviscon works faster for me then Mylanta.

I actually have to take it because of my medications. Not my reflux meds but the other meds I am on for other issues. I have one particular capsule that loves to stick in my throat and then it just burns and burns until I vomit. Mylanta doesn't even help when that happens and I would love to hear your thoughts on what might.

This is the danger of becoming dependent on pharmaceutical drugs. You take ever more drugs to treat the side effects of the original drug, each drug can cause a new issue and the cycle continues, a vicious cycle with no end in sight.

I think it might be time to taik to your doctor. Zantac is a good Acid Reflux medication but sometimes it won't be as effective as another type of medication would be. I am speaking from personal experience, originally Zantac was prescribed for me to treat my Acid Reflux, however, due to other health issues I has at the time it wasn't working, I was still having Acid Reflux attacks, and these were getting out of control.

My doctor put me on the prescription version of Prilisec instead and this one seem to work better. There are a few occasions where I find that I may need an antacid as well, especially when I have one of those heart burn episodes, everyone with Acid Reflux knows what I'm talking about with this, its no fun. The sad thing is some of have pointed out sometimes the medications can cause you to have to take antacids, because of the stomach upset they cause. Once again I can't stress enough talking to your doctor, Zantac could actually be causing the problem and maybe they can suggest an alternative.

I used to take Zantac many years ago, I don't any more. I'm not on current meds for reflux, but I have resorted to Mylanta at times. It's a hit or miss with me though, sometimes it works, other times it doesn't.

I take medication for my GERD, and sometines I have nausea between taking my medication. So I drink a mixture of apple cider vinegar and water which works very well to end the nausea.
