Frequently asked questions

What medications can I get?
Clinicians may prescribe H2 receptor blockers or proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) that target acid production in the stomach.

H2 receptor blockers are available in over-the-counter and prescription strengths. Options may include famotidine (Pepcid AC) and nizatidine (Axid AR). PPIs are stronger than H2 receptor blockers. Options may include esomeprazole (Nexium), lansoprazole (Prevacid), and omeprazole (Prilosec, Zegerid).

Please note: This information is for general reference only. Your clinician will review your symptoms and health history to determine which (if any) treatments are medically necessary.
What's the difference between acid reflux, heartburn, and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)?
Heartburn is the uncomfortable burning sensation in the chest or throat that's caused by acid reflux, when stomach contents move up instead of down. Acid reflux is also called gastroesophageal reflux. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a more severe form of acid reflux. You can get treatment for acid reflux or uncomplicated GERD through Amazon Clinic.
