Prilosec or Aciphex

I suffer from reflux(specifically water bash/excessive saliva).  I am currently taking Prilosec but is has done little to alleviate my symptoms.  I have tried Aciphex before and it seems to work better.  But Aciphex costs $150 for a months supply.  Does anyone have an opinion on which of the two medications is better for treating the symptoms of acid reflux?

Not all PPIs are created 'equal.' It depends on which one helps you since no two GI sytems are completely similar. If one doesn't help, you need to either change the dose or change the brand.
