Heartburn is an uncomfortable feeling that thousands of people experience. It is usually trivial but can be a symptom of a more serious disorder: gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).

Medications remain the cornerstone of the effort to prevent or ameliorate heartburn when lifestyle modifications are ineffective. In a survey, only 55% of males and 66% of females with heartburn requested assistance from a physician.
