I took two tablets per day for several years. Whenever I tried to stop, my heartburn was much worse than when I first started the treatment.

Prilosec should be outlawed and destroyed. It causes cancer. In so many drugs the FDA allowed for sale do more harm than good. The pharmaceutical companies are in control of the FDA. .

Have taken 14-day doses for years but have been on it continuously for months now. It eliminates my swallowing problem, but have just developed very dry mouth and throat.

We'll see, as eliminating swallowing problem is worth some side effects.

I have been taking this for 20 years. Everything gives me heartburn and indigestion, even water. It starts to work on me within 30 minutes, unlike what the commercials say.
