Thank you for the information. I suffer from acid reflux and am trying to find a way to control it. I'm currently using Prilosec. I have an autoimmune disease called Polymyositis so I have to take Imuran, Prednisone and Celebrex. I just cut back on the Prilosec to one 40mg tablet a day. I was on 40mgs morning and night. Then taking Pepcid AC at noon and take tums inbetween. I got worse. I remembered when I was very young and taken to the hospital for stomach pain. The doctors kept giving me all the anti acid stuff, liquid and tablets trying to stop the burning. Finally they just told me to go home and it would get better. It didn't, it got much worse. Then something hit me like a ton of bricks...I went to the refrigerator and drank pickle juice...the whole jar. Within minutes my stomach stopped hurting and after a half hour I was myself again. So much for doctors. If you can send me to a web site to gather info on how I should try to get off Prilosec I would deeply appreciate it. I've cut all my meds way down but I need some help for the reflux. Thank you for your posting... it's really opened my eyes.
