Question
Hello Dr,
I am suffering from acid reflux since last 1 month.

I am taking Drego-D twice in a day(one in morning and one in evening before taking breakfst/meal).

It has been 2 weeks, now i am feeling less pain in stomach and nausea...

can you tell me how much time it will take to cure it completely..

because i am feeling like my life is depend on this medicine, if i forgot to take medicine even in one time then i feel like hell.

And one more thing, if i have got some tension(in work or on private matter) then i fell a bit more heart burn and nausea.

Regards, XXXXXXX

Hi XXXXXXX
Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to answer your query.

You need to take those medications for 4-8 weeks for relief.
Yes, stress worsens acidity related issues including acid reflux disease. Do follow some stress relief methods like meditation for better relief of symptoms.

I hope that answers your question.

Hi,
No . Just once daily before breakfast is enough to control symptoms as it is a sustained release medication.

You can take routine diet and only avoid the following -

1. Avoid coffee
2. Avoid citrus
3. Avoid tomatoes
4. Avoid onions
5. Avoid fatty food
6. Avoid spice and masala.

I hope that answers your question.
