steroids and heartburn

Feeling kinda acidy after my first iv steroid day. If I ask them will they give me some kinda antacid before they hook me up tomorrow, or do I have to get it myself (cause i cant get it!)

they gave me something to take home but i never had heartburn. so i should think they’ll give you something whilst your there.

good luck

I have always been advised to take medication to protect my stomach before getting steroids. I take it every day so I was ok. Ask whatever doctor is on duty to prescribe something for you before you get your next infusion.

Try drinking lemon & ginger tea too. It helps to calm an acid stomach x

Next one tomorrow ill ask, cause dont want my stomach burning for 3 days!
