I'm currently 16 weeks pregnaby with my first child. I have suffered from really bad acid reflux throughout. I've teoed following all the online advice to relieve the symptoms naturally but with no improvement. I'm at the stage where I'm completely exhausted with it all and just feel like crying. Although I wanted to avoid taking any medication I feel like I have no choice as I literally can't take anymore. Does anybody know what the best medication is to take? X

Hiya I'm 38 weeks pregnant and have been suffering from extremely agonising heartburn and indigestion where I literally can't sleep through the pain!
i tried gaviscon and rennie but they didn't help at all.. I spoke to my consultant because I was literally in so much pain from it (I was reluctant to take anything) and she prescribed ranitidine and I have to say it has helped hugely! I still get the odd flare up but no where near as much and I was reassured that there was no risk to baby.
It's prescription and I take 150mg twice a day. Hopefully it can help you too!

Thanks so much for the response. I have my appointment with the midwife this week so I will discuss it with her then xx
