What over the counter medicine is good for a hernia?


No medication is good for a hernia unless you have a hiatal hernia. Hiatal hernias cause acid reflux into the esophagus which causes heart burn. Over the counter medications such as Pepcid and Prilosec effectively treat the heartburn by blocking the stomachs production of acid.
