  • Took Nexium for seven years, then found Omerprazole. Worked so well for two years that I cut the caplets in half two years ago. All's well so far. Have forgotten a few times but remember real quick, within two hours, discomfort.

  • The generics don't work as well as name-brand Prilosec, but it could just be placebo effect. I could get it much cheaper from the pharmacy for awhile (until my prescription plan stopped covering it) so ask your doctor if that's an option.

  • I was having horrible acid reflux and was diagnosed with Barrett's rings in my esophagus 9 years ago. Since I started taking this simple drug, the acid reflux is completely gone and the ring growth has been arrested.

    Taken for: Heartburn
    Duration taken: Two years or more
  • I take 10mg every morning at least an hour before I eat something. As long as I follow this rule every day, I never have heartburn. If I don't, I will get heartburn regularly over even the most mildest foods.

  • Using it for long term - started with 20mg - increased to 40mg but not have to take antacid tablets daily and a couple times a night as wake up with acid reflux . Since giving up smoking have used nicotine lozenges - 2mg at about 4 a day for last 6 months - these seem to trigger nausea also - but the no smoking side is something better tolerated - just have to get rid of the upset stomach feeling at night

  • It is best to take in the morning 30-60 mins before you eat, most people do not do that making it less effective.
