Not all acid meds work optimally for each person. If you've tried this medication for several months and it's not helping talk to your doctor about trying another brand of medication.

However, if you've been using this med for some time successfully and it seems as if it's no longer working, you may want to consider asking your doctor to perform some tests to check on the state of your acid reflux.
