Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Since the beginning, we’ve led the way in OTC frequent heartburn treatments. We were first on the market and have continued to provide relief to heartburn sufferers with our trusted formula. For nearly 5 years now, Prilosec OTC has been in the strongest class of one-pill-a-day heartburn medicine available over the counter.

Product Features

Proven Strength for Heartburn Relief
Keep Heartburn from Coming Back while Taking Prilosec OTC
Prilosec OTC is strong enough to fight heartburn before it begins. It’s the only over-the-counter PPI (proton pump inhibitor) clinically proven to block heartburn for 24 hours.
And that means with 1 pill a day for 14 days, you get the relief you need from the pain of frequent heartburn.* And, while taking Prilosec OTC, heartburn won’t keep coming back.

In a recent study, we tested the strength of Prilosec OTC against frequent heartburn. Take a look at the results:

78% of consumers were heartburn free on the first night
81% of consumers had complete relief*/only mild symptoms on day one
94% of consumers were satisfied with how well Prilosec OTC worked

See for yourself if Prilosec OTC is right for you.

*It’s possible with Prilosec OTC. Use as directed for 14 days for treating frequent heartburn

Why Prilosec OTC Is Different

As the first over-the-counter proton pump inhibitor (PPI), Prilosec OTC is different from many other heartburn treatments and medications. Here’s a quick breakdown:
PPI (Proton Pump Inhibitor)

When you eat, millions of tiny pumps in your stomach produce acid to break down food — heartburn occurs when these excess acids reflux into your esophagus. Prilosec OTC works by directly blocking many of these pumps. Your stomach produces enough acid to digest food, but reduces excess acid — making it the most effective heartburn treatment choice and the #1 doctor recommended OTC acid reducer. Prilosec OTC blocks heartburn for 24 hours with one pill a day.*

Antacids

Antacids neutralize the acid in your stomach. Unlike the proactive PPI, antacids are commonly taken after you eat or when pain begins. While no heartburn treatments cure the condition, antacids provide only temporary relief.

H2 Blockers

H2 Blockers relieve heartburn symptoms by reducing the acid production. They begin working within an hour and last for 12 hours. H2 Blockers are not as effective in treating severe heartburn as PPIs.

*It’s possible with Prilosec OTC. Use as directed for 14 days for treating frequent heartburn.

This is one of the top money-making drugs of all time, and for good reason. It works. I used to have pretty bad acid reflux. I would chew Pepcid Complete (which is an antacid drug combined with a base to neutralize acid) after every meal, as if they were after-dinner mints. Now, I just take Prilosec once a day, and now I almost never suffer from heartburn, and when I do, it is not as bad as it used to be. Trust me on this. This drug works differently than Pepcid or Zantac (I have a Ph.D in biology), so if those drugs don't work for you, don't be afraid to give this a try.

Flavor Name: RegularSize Name: 42 Count Verified Purchase
I have been a Prilosec user for about four years now. In the past, I would do the 2 week recommended period, then stop for a couple of weeks, and continue that cycle. My acid reflux never got any better except on the days I took the Prilosec. The day I would stop it would be right back. Finally, I found out that most people take it as a maintenace medication, so I started taking it once a day without fail and my acid reflux was finally gone forever! I used to wake up all night long with severe esophageal pain, sometimes vomiting right in bed from all the acid. It was such a nightmare. I would end up taking a half bottle of tums which still wouldn't work, and sleep sitting up. I tried every over the counter medication out there with no relief at all until Prilosec. It truly is a miracle drug. For those of you out there with acid reflux, don't suffer any longer! Try this and give it about 3 days to start working, and you will be able to turn your sleep and your life around. Amazon often has specials such as spend $49 on groceries (this qualifies) and get $10 off your order. By all means, double up on Prilosec and do this.... I am now 2 years acid reflux free! It's not so bad, if I miss a day now, I don't suffer at all.

For those that suffer with frequent heartburn or have frequent instances of gastric reflux, Prilosec is a literal lifesaver.

Stomach acid is strong stuff (pH of 1), and belongs in the stomach, not in the esophagus, where it can cause burning of the esophageal lining (hertburn). If this happens frequently, the esophagus can be badly damaged. Gastro-esophageal Reflex Disease (GERD)can also cause severe erosive damage to the teeth if stomach acid is burped into the mouth frequently. The tooth enamel is literally eroded away, and teeth become very sensitive and permanently damaged.

To save your teeth and esophagus, Prilosec has come to the rescue. Prilosec is a former prescription product in a class of medicines called proton pump inhibitors. This means that the effect of Prilosec is to decrease stomach acid production. This is also beneficial for treatment of stomach ulcers, which need a minimal acid environment to heal.

Prilosec is taken once a day for 14 days in a typical course (thus, it is generally packaged in groups of 14 tablets). Most people have considerable relief beyond the 14 day course. It is not a product to take for immediate (within minutes) treatment of heartburn. The insert on the box states it takes at least a day to 4 days to reach its full effect. Each person will vary in terms of relief and how long the relief lasts.

Prilosec is a very good medicine for the treatment of GERD. It is in the same class as Prevacid, so if Prilosec gives you undesirable side effects, try Prevacid and the side effects may be lessened.

Flavor Name: RegularSize Name: 42 Count
I am wandering far afield from my regular fare to review an over-the-counter medication, and I am certainly not a doctor or in any way qualified to advise anyone as far as medicines go, but I did feel compelled to review Prilosec because, to me, it is a wonder drug, and I am so very glad it is now available over the counter. My stomach and I have something of a love-hate relationship, and I am prone to pressure of a certain sort in my upper abdominal regions from time to time. It may or may not be heartburn; all I know is that it feels like industrial strength hunger pangs taking root way up high and that it can be triggered by the consumption of such foods as white chicken meat, turkey and dressing, and cantaloupe. Whatever it is, it is darn uncomfortable and liable to last for a couple of days if left to its own acidic devices. Antacids do nothing to help me, and even the purple pill known as Nexium strikes out every time. My only hope in these situations is Prilosec, which until now has not always been available to me because it could only be obtained with a prescription. Now, though, I can always have a ready supply of this wonder drug on hand, and while the pharmaceutical company isn't exactly giving this stuff away, the cost is definitely worth it in terms of peace of mind, not to mention peace of stomach.
The package says that Prilosec is not intended for the immediate relief of heartburn, that it should be taken over a course of several days and may require at least a day to reach full effect. I'm not going to argue the point. In my case, though, Prilosec knocks out the worst of my discomfort within an hour; it really takes no time at all to work its magic inside my system.
