I wrote this in another thread, but I dont know where that was.. sooo.. I have major problems with indigestion. My dad and brother have always had major problems (I suspect that my dads side of the family is where my Celiacs comes from) But anyway... my indigestion has gotten considerably worse since gluten free. I usually would only get the indigestion from raw onions and really really spicy foods.. now everything gives it to me.

My dad introduced me to Zegrid. Its newer. You can only get it by prescription. Its a large pill to take. My dad actually had to get it in the powder form b/c he couldnt take the pill. The powder tastes awful. But it works.

I dont know anything about digestive enzymes. I hear that they work though. If they are available otc, I might try those first. I am sure someone on here has more info on those.

Dear Taz Sharret and TinkerbellSwt,

I have had such bad reflux that I had to sleep practically sitting straight up. This was with taking Prilosec OTC twice daily and watching my diet! The thing is, I could suck the juice out of a jalepeno, and not get bothered, but if I ate tuna and crackers or cereal, I would be so sick! After going gluten-free that has helped, but I still take the Prilosec. Guess what? You could get the same effects from Prilosec OTC that you get from Zegrid! You know why? They are both Omeprazole! That is right, the same thing!

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl B)

are you having heartburn?? if so try a little baking soda mixed with water. DGL is a great homeopathic. I also sleep on a 6 inch wedge to keep the acid down[big help] and take Reglan 30 mins before each meal, its made a big difference for me, helps the food digest [i have slow gastric emptying] along with helping control acid

I know that Prilosec and Zegrid are the same thing.. for some unknown reason?? I find that Zegrid works better! Maybe its just mind over matter!!! ;)

I also get so bad that I have to sleep sitting up. And drinking glass after glass of milk. Eventually it goes away.

(and for us RX's are cheaper than OTC) sometimes I really like insurances!!
