Try to take an antacid before you go to bed.
It will work very quickly on heartburn you may be experiencing before you go to bed and it can also be used for those heartburn episodes that wake you up during the night if the heartburn comes back.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Take dexlansoprazole which has 24 hours coverage. Avoid late night meal.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
