Most people will suffer from acid reflux at some point in their life; it’s usually the result of eating too much or eating the wrong type of foods. If you suffer from acid reflux persistently, you should see your GP to determine what’s causing it. They may suggest making some long-term changes to your lifestyle, such as adapting your diet.

There are two main types of medication that can help relieve the symptoms of heartburn and acid reflux.

  • Antacids, such as Rennie, to neutralise stomach acid
  • Proton pump inhibitors that stop the production of stomach acid.
