Suggest remedy for acid reflux

my son is taking treatment for gastro entestinal problems-acid reflux -taking razo and lesuride before food and gaviskon after food.The medicines were prescribed for 3 weeks.First week , he was back to normal almost.But later he had frequent attacks of acid reflux and suffocation at night and unable to sleep or take morning breakfast.This confuses us as to what food has to be given so that he takes it and takes afterfood medicine properly? He was referred to CARDIO for ECHO as prolapse of MVP was observed.He is advised to have 1 - 0- 1 of this by CARDIO for 2 months.But frequent attacks of this nature,confuse us as to whether naturopathy has to be resorted to for active digestion .Please guide us.

HI
Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, I had gone through the history given here and I could say that the given symptom could be due to acid reflux phenomenon and it may not be due to cardiac disease because mitral valve prolapse may not cause the chest pain at particular time, so it is the acid reflux disease only.
If I would be doctor of this case then I would try to treat this case with Tab Omeprazole 40 mg with Domperidone 20 mg once in day, with the advise to take this medicine at the time of evening, also advise to avoid the heavy meal, spicy food prior to bed, eat more alkali diet.
hope this information helps.
