Hello Doctor, am suffering from GERD. Its been now more than a week now. I consulted a doctor and is now taking PAN-D tablet morning and evening. Earlier i felt relaxed with this tablet, but now am getting very much discomfort at my chest area & also now back area. It's paining and stretching most of the time now.Need to get out of this GERD as soon possible. Can you please suggest a quick remediation.

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

Pan D is a good medication for relief of GERD symptoms. But medication alone is not enough to control GERD symptoms. The following should also be done.

1. Weight reduction if obese
2. Avoiding coffee, citrus, tomatoes, fatty food, spice/masala, chocolates, aerated drinks
3. Do not eat full stomach.. Eat smaller meals
4. Go to bed at least 2-3 hours after food.

If these do not provide relief, then you may considering switching to other medications.

I hope that answers your question.

Hi,
As I have mentioned in my previous post, lifestyle/dietary changes are also important for relief of symptoms. You need to follow them.

Continue taking Pan D.
You can also take antacid anesthetic gels like Mucaine. Gaviscon also provides good relief.

I hope that answers your question.

Hi,
Take Pan D, Mucaine and a Dolo 650.
If the symptoms persist, get examined by a gastroenterologist.
