I feel your pain!!! Ranitidine is generic for Xantac and most insurance plans in the US should cover it. If not, it's available over the counter. I'm on a max dose of that plus Tums and still waking up at night with reflux, but I can't even imagine how much worse it would be with nothing. Hope you get some relief soon!

My gp offered to prescribe me something. If you don't want to go that route then gaviscon has been loads better for me than tablet antacids

This is me exactly. Im not sure why my doctor didn't prescribe me Xantac as I was on it my last pregnancy but at least the Pepcid and tums take off the worst of it and I am also max dose and still wake up with the worst heartburn. I love spicy foods but I have cut back drastically because I was tired of waking up feeling like I was going to be sick in the middle of the night.

I emailed the doctor and the nurse gave me a list of stuff to try: tums, pepcid, Prevacid, Zantac, maalox, mylanta, Gaviscon, or riopan.
Does anyone have better luck with one over the other? I don't go in to see my actual doctor until next Tuesday.

Any of them that contain ranitidine are your best bet I would say but to be honest each works differently for each person so would be prepared to try a few. I think start with Zantac and gaviscon
