Brief Answer: Omeprazole will help Detailed Answer: Hi, I have read your query. I am sorry about the hyperacidity problem. I usually treat my patients with similar problem with a course of antacids like Capsule Omez around 20mg daily on an empty basis for a minimum of 3 weeks. You may want to get this prescribed by your doctor as well. Together with this, take bland diet and drink plenty of water orally. Avoid spicy and oily food. This will take care of the hyperacidity problem. Your increasing weight is not due to hyperacidity problem. You said that you are taking Forcort for Asthma. I assume it is a steroid medication. In such a case, steroids cause increase in weight after long term use. Please check with your doctor about the same as well. Let me know if you have more queries. Get well soon. Regards,

Brief Answer: low thyroid function can be a cause Detailed Answer: Hi, Regular exercise and healthy diet can help you reduce weight. There is no short cut for it. I am glad you are taking the medicine occasionally. In such a case, under or low thyroid function can cause you to increase weight as well. Hence, I suggest you to get your thyroid function test done. Regards,
