For nights when you finish the whole burrito…One of these meds, like Zantac (ranitidine) or Pepcid (famotidine), helps reduce the excess stomach acid that causes heartburn and indigestion. They should provide relief within the hour. For less severe indigestion, try an antacid (like Maalox) or Pepto Bismol. Or if you know you’re prone to heartburn and indigestion try taking a proton pump inhibitor—a stronger med, like Prilosec—earlier in the day (ahead of whatever triggers the pain), Khatri says.
