Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

The over-the-counter zantac might not be a high enough dose or it might be the wrong medication for you. There are several classes of antacids and there are better ones available with a prescription. The over-the-counter doses are also very low - talk with your doctor about how much you can safely increase this dose.

I hope that this helps. If you have more questions, please click on "ASK ME A QUESTION" link above to directly ask me a question!
