Doctor prescribes to treat acidity?

Keats Health Supervisor
I'm assuming you mean an acidic stomach content. If so the doctor will prescribe an alkaline solution like an indigestion powder (or you could eat bicarbonate soda if you were really desperate =). They will do this because the alkalinity of the powder will cancel out (or at least reduce the content) of the acid through what is know as neutralization.
