What can I do to help prevent heartburn?

When heartburn strikes, ROLAIDS provides relief from common symptoms, so you can continue to enjoy good food, friends and family. In addition to taking ROLAIDS, here are a few things you can do to minimize symptoms.

Tips for minimizing heartburn symptoms
  • If you are taking prescription medication which causes heartburn, ask your health professional to offer you other options.
  • Wear loose-fitting clothes.
  • Eat smaller, more frequent meals, so your stomach doesn’t get too full.
  • If you’re on a prescription medication that is causing heartburn, speak to your healthcare professional about other options.
  • Raise the head of your bed by putting blocks under the bedposts. Extra pillows alone may not help.
  • Limit the foods and beverages that worsen symptoms.
  • Stop smoking and/or drinking alcohol.
  • Excess weight can sometimes make symptoms worse. So if you are overweight, try to lose weight if you can and if your healthcare professional recommends it.
