Omeprazole effectiveness
My doctor says I have esophagitis, and prescribed for me 20 mg omeprazole for 4 weeks.
I am taking it now for 6 days and don't see any improvement yet.
The drug reviews say it usually takes up to 4 days to feel better. Is this the case, or may it take longer time to see results?
Thanks.

I had a friend with heartburn as her only symptom of what turned out to be Celiac disease.  It took 3 months on a gluten-free diet for her pain to subside.

  Hi...u do have to modify ur diet along with taking meds in order to help the meds work faster...if u continue to eat foods that trigger ur reflux it will take the meds longer to work, or for u to feel their effects.

Keeping a journal as to what u eat and how u feel can help u determine if something other then reflux is going on such as the above posted mentions.

   keep us posted
