  • 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.

    Heartburn
  • 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.

    Heartburn
  • 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.

  • This medicine works much better for me than the nexium. I have switched back and forth because they eventually stop working. The only thing I dont like about Prilosec is the packaging! Put it in a bottle like Nexium!!

    Excessive stomach acid secretion
  • Taking it every day 30mins before breakfast results in no heartburn at all. But i´m concerned about long term side effects like problems in B12 inhibit, calcium, colesterol

    Gastroesophageal reflux disease (gerd)
  • This pill gave me an uncertain feeling in my stomach, and my heart burn didn't really go although it did reduce. Stopped taking them in favour of ranitidine and gaviscon.

    Heartburn
  • Skipping a dose or two does not seem to cause problems. Occasional break-through heartburn easily fixed with Tums. Even with a large copay it is cheaper if you get a prescription and have it filled at the pharmacy.
