  • 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.

    Taken for: Gerd
    Duration taken: Two years or more
  • 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.

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

  • It is best to take it every day or every other day. As stated, it does not work well for immediate relief.

  • Take it as soon as you wake up every morning. Before anything else to eliminate heartburn all day.

  • No one talks about this but a side effect of all proton pump inhibitors is gynemasticia (breast enlargement and tenderness). It took 18 months for the pain and swelling to go away once I stopped.. Bad medicine..
