Ok, this is a bit scary for me, but I have to say it...

For the past week or so, I've been getting heartburn from coffee.

I know, I know, sacriliege. I've had to cut back to one cup a day, and I find that I can't even really get that down. I'm seriously thinking of weaning myself onto caffienated tea, or perhaps come other caffienated beverage. Any ideas? Sodas are out (I try try to limit my intake (personal reasons)), as is anything too terribly expensive.

Help!

Coffee

Try a different brand of beans. I have suffered with heartburn since age 8, recently I started taking 150 mg of Zantac twice a day and that has helped lots, I was taking Pepcid AC before, but the Zantac is working much better.
As I write this though I have heartburn, but I had vodka sauce, crushed peppers, red wine and chocolate for dinner and there's not much I can do to prevent it when I want to eat lots of stuff I like. I know what makes my heartburn bad but I like those foods too much to give them up. I did try decaf for awhile and that helped, but decaf is pointless to me MUST HAVE CAFFEINE!

Thinking of having a shot of espresso now [Wink]

Penguin Mints are nice. If you switch to caffeinated tea, keep in mind that tea has less than half the caffeine of coffee.

Mayve you could 1: Spike your juice with this http://www.thinkgeek.com/caffeine/drinks/2967/
or 2: Spike your allready caffinated beverage with it and drink less [Wink]
(that's 100mg of caffiene per 1 once)

... unless you choose your tea wisely. There's a brew called gunpowder tea that packs a good caffeine wallop. Also, Celestial Seasonings makes a tasty tea called Morning Thunder that'll keep you up for a while.

Could be your diet.

There is a whole group of things that bother me when I'm not eating right.

More complex carbs -- brown rice, oat bran, etc. gives your stomache acids something to chew on, rather than you.

Also lots of veggies. You may not have to give up so much coffee.

Coffee, since it's a stimulant has the ability to depress your appetite and you may be skipping meals and snacking a bit.

Complex carbs are cheaper than pills and are better for your health.

I second the Morning Thunder, though if you are getting persistent heartburn, you may wish to reconsider your relationship with caffeine (or anxiety, or diet [dairy and sugar for instance], or lifestyle) for a short period.

Nice photoshop trick, Spungo, but everyone knows kittens need to be blanched before they are cooked.

Wowza, what a positive caffinated response!

PB- Penguin mints are delicious, but hard to acquire locally. And like you said, tea just doesn't cut it.

Dual4G: Wowza. Thanks for the hot tip about the syrups. 100 mg per ounce is a staggering amount. I must consider this.

Colnel Panic: Excellent, excellent. A drug-free, dietary aproach that I can live with. Problematically, I already have nearly the diet you describe. Rice is the staple of my diet (delicious, sticky rice), although it is true that I haven't been eating as much at 'mealtimes', probably because of the caffeine.

Perfectstormy: Despite my love for you and the other members of the geekculture forums, any further suggestion that I limit my caffeine intake will be taken as an act of war.

GMX: Interesting, but it doesn't give any information about the stomach friendly coffee.

Thank you all for your suggestions. Perhaps I need to visit thinkgeek...

Coffee

Yeah, I know, I looked and looked. You can order it, but they don't have any info on it at the site. I've heard about it on Imus In the Morning on MSNBC. It still has all the caffeine of regular coffee but isn't as acidic.

Or better yet order penguins direct from the source at www.peppermints.com !

Oh I forgot about a great coffee that is very smooth and does not give me heartburn and has twice the caffeine, SHOCK! from www.extremecoffee.com

Also Starbucks french roast has been kind to me and for my espresso maker espressione pods
