Signs You Have GERD
- Alcohol (possibly)
Talk to your doctor if you believe this is a problem for you. Know that GERD is treatable . It’s recommended that those with GERD avoid drugs such as aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), or naproxen (Aleve, Naprosyn). Take your prescribed medicines with plenty of water. When your doctor gives you a new medicine, remember to ask whether it will make your heartburn worse.
