Avoid foods and beverages that trigger your heartburn. Beware of some allergic reactions that might occur including rash, difficulty breathing, and itching. slide 8 of 10 Antacid (Generic Name: aluminum/magnesium antacid/simethicone) Oral antacids cannot prevent the stomach from producing acid, but it can instead perform to reduce existing acid in the stomach. One of the most common is your lower esophageal sphincter (LES) not functioning properly.
Approximately 17% to 45% of women who become pregnant will suffer from heartburn. Several types of over-the-counter (OTC) and prescription medicines can help with heartburn.

When the juices get into the air passages they can shrink the passages or scar the lungs. It is marked by hoarseness, frequent throat clearing, and coughing. That is, the tightness (tone) of the sphincter is reduced during pregnancy. Try using a small dessert or salad plate for your meals and only take what you would eat at home for the same meal. Apple cider vinegar neutralizes the digestive juices and acts against their production as well. In early pregnancy, acid reflux is more commonly due to hormones and other bodily changes.
