I've had GERD for many years and finally got it under control after using Omeprazole for a couple of years till it finally stopped. Changing what I eat and when I eat makes a big difference also. It only bothers me once in a great while now and I'll just take a 10mg Famotidine and I'm good. You might want to see your Doctor to see which one is best for you. But you can beat it in time.
