Dokteronline.com does not sell (prescription) medicines. At your request, we can - in your name and on your behalf - arrange a consultation with an independent doctor for you, possibly in combination with the prescribing of treatment which is then sold and delivered by an independent pharmacy.
Before such a consultation, you must first complete a medical questionnaire and select your preferred treatment. A doctor will evaluate your answers and may decide to write a prescription. We will then send the prescription to a pharmacy that will send you the medicine.
Gastro-oesophageal reflux is stomach acid flowing from the stomach back into the food pipe (oesophagus). Various conditions can cause reflux as a result of the pressure they exert on the stomach, for example, pregnancy and hiatus hernia. Reflux can cause symptoms such as indigestion, acid regurgitation, or the painful burning sensation of heartburn. Over long periods of time the acid can also damage and inflame the lining of the foodpipe. This condition is known as reflux oesophagitis.
