Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) FAQs (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
Should I see my health care provider if I have these symptoms?
Call your health care provider if you have any symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) that occur frequently, disrupt your sleep, interfere with work or other activities, or are not relieved by taking nonprescription antacids. If you have heartburn 3 or more times a week for at least 2 weeks, a visit to your health care provider is warranted.
If you have been taking antacids, tell your health care provide so that he or she can monitor how well they work and how often you need to use them.
