  • Axid AR is a non-prescription medicine that contains nizatidine, an ingredient that doctors have prescribed for years.
  • Axid AR works by reducing the production of stomach acid that can cause heartburn.
  • In clinical studies, Axid AR was significantly better than placebo in relieving and preventing heartburn symptoms.

Heartburn: a problem that can interfere with your lifestyle

The stomach normally produces acid, especially following eating and drinking. Sometimes acid backing up into the esophagus can cause a burning pain and discomfort. This pain and discomfort is commonly known as heartburn.

When taken as directed, Axid AR relieves and/or prevents heartburn.

Tips for managing heartburn

  • Avoid lying down flat or bending over soon after eating.
  • Avoid eating late at night, or just before bedtime.
  • Avoid certain foods or beverages more likely to cause heartburn, such as rich, spicy, fried foods; chocolate, caffeine, alcohol; even some fruits and vegetables.
  • Eat slowly and do not eat big meals.
  • If you are overweight, lose weight.
  • If you smoke, stop or cut down.
  • Elevate the head of your bed.
  • Avoid wearing tight fitting clothing around your stomach.
