... diarrhea, have that problem already from colitis, does anyone else have this problem with heartburn remedies?
Dear hartil1, I have Crohns disease and GERD and heartburn is a major problem, most anything can trigger it even NOT eating. I know this is going to sound "old school" but helped me a lot. During my last hospitalization my GERD was acting up bad (in for Crohns flare and possible heart problem again) After trying a handful for high priced drugs, my dr suggested BeptoBismal. Yes the pink stuff. They gave me the liquid form and it helped my GERD and diarrhea. I continue to use it at home, as needed, for either case. Be careful, too much and you get stopped up. Don't know which is worse :-) With regular use it (Bepto) can cause your bm's to be black. I was wrned of that in advance so it didn't freak me out when it happened. What DID surprise me was when my tongue turned black. Of course I later found out it was harmless. Another plus, it does not interfere with meds. Good luck, and let me know how you are doing. Be well as can be...
