There is a wide range of prescription medications used to treat acid reflux disease, also known as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)—a condition where stomach acid travels upward through a loose sphincter muscle and enters the food pipe (the esophagus), causing a dull pressure-like pain in the chest. For a breakdown of all the different options, you can read our blog post on the topic here.
GERD is a chronic medical condition that might require the use of maintenance medications in order for symptoms to be managed.
