    Which drugs are you taking?

    I am on Dabigatran, Ramipril, Amlodipine, Eplerenone and Bisoprolol which my Cardiologist advised me would probably cause heartburn as a side effect, I seem to recall being told one of them had citric or ascorbic acid as part of the active ingredients. His suggestion was rennies, I should have bought shares in them the amount I end up munching.
