Advice & Tips: My GERD is due to obesity. Coped with Prilosec/Omeprazole until recently extreme acidity began showing up in stools, and heartburn happened every week or so. I always took one in the morning and one in the evening. I switched to a previous script that has always worked in the past but was not covered under previous medical coverage.

Advice & Tips: I'm on this "off-label" because the bottle says 1 a day and I take 2. Nexium is too expensive and I'm uninsured until June. I would recommend this as a first stop for some patients, however, as the OTC is much cheaper than the pharmaceutical variety of the same strength.
