About 6 weeks ago I was put on a regimen of Prilosec, 20mg/day taken at bedtime, for GERD. Up until I began the Prilosec
regimen, I'd been managing the GERD with antacids
, elevating the head of the bed, and ensuring that I didn't eat within 2 (now 3) hours before bedtime. This has been reasonably-successful for the past 3 years, but because I'd had some ongoing pain, my doctor (a GP) thought it might make sense to try Prilosec.
