Lisa, There are several meds that can help greatly with reflux. Some of them are Prilosec, Prevacid, Aciphex and Protonix. Hopefully her doctor will try her on different ones till they find what works best for her. I have found that drinking a lot of water/tea/etc with my meals helps with digestion and not lying down for several hours after I eat helps too. E-mail me if you would like to chat.
