Brief Answer:
Take it after meals.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
Benforce M is associated with digestive issues and nausea and gastritis. These are common side effects. She needs to take this medicine continuously for improvement of her symptoms. The other alternatives will also cause similar side effects. It is best to have this after her meals. It will help in improving the glucose intolerance.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.

Brief Answer:
Try antacids first.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing again.
She can consult a gastroenterologist only if the problem is severe and is not controlled with antacids and omeprazole. She can also use an extra pillow at night and avoid having oily and spicy food at night.
Hope my answer is helpful.
