Enjoy the Heat and Kill the Burn with UrgentRx! #MyUrgentRX

My family has always enjoyed hot and spicy food. Unfortunately we all experience serious heartburn following our spicy indulgences – I even get heartburn when I drink coffee. I’ve learned to prepare myself when I eat spicy food, I’m not always prepared with an antacid so I pretty much anticipate the burn and live through it.


UrgentRx is usually located near the cash registers or the pharmacy (I’ve seen them at both)

I recently found out about UrgentRx – on the go meds for on the go New Yorkers like me, which are found at city Duane Reade’s. So the other day when my family decided to head to Whole Foods for lunch, I knew to stop by a local Duane Reade and grab some UrgentRx. My favorite item from the Whole Foods buffet is the Indian food – I’d just about die for some good chicken tikka masala, or somosa’s!

But before I turned up the heat, I headed to Duane Reade to prepare for the burn. I love going to Duane Reade, my family goes there every Sunday after church and I go whenever I’m downtown (which is at least twice a week). I remember going there almost everyday after school with my best friend when I was in high school to buy drinks and snacks. I meant to just pop in and pick up UrgentRx for heartburn and pop out, but I got so distracted by the sales and ended up walking out with more than I bargained for – but all at a great price!

My Duane Reade had some seriously hot sales in the food aisle – I ended up scoring Girards Champagne Dressing for $1.19 – 68% off from $3.79! I’ve never tried it before, but Champagne Dressing sounded so good that I couldn’t pass it up. And I couldn’t not buy DeLish Scrumptious Brownie Bites – which were on sale for 99 cents.

The UrgentRx was located by the register and were priced at $1.59 and come in a travel friendly size – it’s smaller than my Balance Rewards card and small enough for wallet or purse. They come in Heart Burn Relief, Headache Relief, Allergy Attack Relief, Upset Stomach Relief, Ache and Pain Relief, and Critical Care Aspirin  I can definitely see myself using all of them at one time or another. I had my camera in my hand at checkout and the packet was so small and thin I forgot I was holding on to it and almost forgot to pay for it! Luckily the bright pink and white packaging caught my eye before I could complete my transaction.


Headed downstairs to Whole Foods! Can’t wait to get my hands on my favorite heat-heavy eats!

After loading up on snacks and UrgentRx I headed over to Whole Foods in Columbus Circle – my sister and I shared some Indian food and I bought some tabbouleh and spicy Caribbean shrimp and mango salad – which was really delicious but super hot! And as expected I used my UrgentRx – it’s a no water powder that you just pour in your mouth! How cool is that?! Because it’s in powder form it gets into your bloodstream faster and is therefor more effective. Plus its tear and go packaging is childproof. It worked super fast for me, and I absolutely loved it!
