GERD is very controllable problem. I am amazed that you have been suffering with it and haven't received help from any corner. First of all, Rabprazole is for acidity and not for GERD. Infact for GERD - first we suggest three cardinal rules- 1. Do not take too much water with your food. 2. Don't overfill your stomach and try less food but at more frequency to meet your needs. Avoiding spicy and oily stuff as much as possible. 3. Most importantly, Never lie down immediately after taking anything to eat OR Drink! if you follow these rules and get relief then its great- if you don't then better medicines can be recommended!
