Post subject: acid reflux
Hi

Has anyone else taken zantac during pregnancy??

I'm nearly 34 weeks pg and was suffering all the time with acid reflux, someone recommended zantac, I've done a little research and alot of pg women have taken it with no ill effects, I took it over the weekend just to get some relief, it worked a treat, just wondered if anyone had took it for a reasonable amount of time without ill effects, I'm seeing m/w tomorrow so will ask her, think I just need reassurance that it's ok to take, I don't like takin anything for fear of hurting the baby!! Xx

I know,i asked the doc to do gaviscon advance on prescription as it was soooooo expensive,the peptic we both have is just a cheaper version and i swig it all day long,so to me there is no point taking it if i am taking that much!

Nearly fainted twice on the school run this morning Embarassed
