What Is Breakthrough Heartburn?
This is of special interest for heartburn sufferers who are taking an acid-reducing medication to help prevent their heartburn.
The term “breakthrough heartburn” refers to heartburn symptoms that break through the control of preventative treatments like Prilosec® or Nexium®.
If you are taking a preventative heartburn medication, but are still suffering from occasional heartburn, ask your doctor about taking Mylanta antacids to relieve your heartburn symptoms, even the kind that breaks through.
