When the cause of indigestion is lifestyle-related, prevention is the best way to find relief of symptoms.
Some over-the-counter medications may help relieve indigestion pain include:
- antacids (Tums, Rolaids), and
- acid blockers (ranitidine [Zantac], omeprazole [Prilosec OTC]).
Other indigestion remedies to alleviate symptoms include:
- avoid laying down flat, as this may worsen symptoms, and
- drink milk or water to ease the acid in the stomach.
