Hello,

The symptoms seem to be related to GERD. I recommend to use Omeprazole 20 mg before breakfast to lower the stomach acidity. I also suggest to use Maalox three times a day which is an antacid. I recommend to eat a fiber rich diet to relieve constipation. I also suggest to drink liquids.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
