  Hi and welcome to the GERD forum,.

That is an individual question as we r all different, so meds will work differently for each of us...cimetidine or tagament is a H2 blocker like pepcid....it works differently then a PPI like prilosec....

Sometimes a Dr will try one and if it doesn't seem to work , may try the other,...

It may be diet or eating habits....

U can not rely just on the med to remove the issue, it is  diet and lifestyle modifications that will aid the meds.....

Most PPI's like Prilosec are OTC, but u really should see a Dr to see the root cause of ur GERD to make sure it is not Gall Bladder or something like that .....

With the med to u take as directed on the package or as needed?
