Fortunately, there are several treatment options available. For people who only get occasional heartburn, over-the-counter medications often provide heartburn relief. Lifestyle changes can also be helpful in decreasing the frequency of heartburn, reducing the severity of the symptoms, and preventing the condition in the first place.
The treatment recommended by your healthcare provider will depend on a number of factors, including:
  • How often heartburn occurs
  • How severe your symptoms are
  • When your symptoms occur
  • How much your symptoms interfere with your life
  • What you have tried in the past.
