Acidity refers to the increased secretion of hydrochloric acid in the stomach. HCl being acid can produce burning sensation in stomach and can cause breach in the lining of stomach called mucosa producing ulcer. This ulcer can bleed and can lead to many other complications.

Drugs for treating ulcer aim at inhibiting the acid secretion at different levels of the mechanism. Some of the drugs are

1)h2 blockers like rantadine
2)proton pump inhibitors like pantoprozole
3)antacids like sodium carbonate,magnesium hydroxide etc.

Other drugs aim at healing the ulcer like sucralfate and bismuth salts.

You have mentioned that you have gone through all common medicines, then you have an option called 'vagotomy'. It is the surgical removal of para sympathetic connection(vagus nerve) to the stomach.

Do the following to avoid the problem.

1)Avoid taking stress which is the major cause of acidity these days. You can practice yoga and other stress relaxing techniques

2) Take food punctually at any cost. Try to modify your job if you are a shift worker.

3) Take soft food. Avoid spicy food especially at night.
