Daily heartburn since heart attack

Had a heart attack in March, now plagued with heartburn ? Due to the heart drugs. Endoscopy showed reflux oesophagitis but none of the medication I’ve been given is helping. Feel like chucking the heart drugs in the bin but know I can’t. Has anybody else had issues with heartburn since starting heart drugs and has anything worked for you?

I used to get heartburn owing to the heart drugs, my Gp prescribed Omeprazole and have not had the problem since.

Ive had omeprazole and a variety of other drugs and nothing has helped, this is why I’m so fed up, nothing seems to be working

I've had oesophagitis - it takes at least 8 weeks for the oesophagus to heal from starting omeprazole/lansoprazole.
