Hi..sorry u r feeling poorly.May I assume that u were dx'd with GERD since u r taking prilosec?.....is this under a drs orders ?Or r u buying it OTC?
Also r u taking these meds as per the directions?Is it possible that ur diet is alot of acid based items?
If u have been to the dr with ur issues, I suggest u disscuss ur concerns with him/her.
We can continue to offer support, but that will not ease ur stomach issues.I hope u continue to post here and give an update on ur condition.
I was sort of diagnosed with GERD, the doctors aren't completely sure what is going on with me so they are having me take a double dose(two pills a day) for a month to see if that will heal my stomach. They said if that doesn't work, then they will have to put a scope down to my stomach to see what is wrong.
And as for my diet, I have basically cut out everything that could cause my stomach to become upset. I don't eat tomatoes, garlic, onion, citris fruits/drinks, dark soda, chocolate...etc. My diet is pretty bland..oatmeal and toast for breakfast...chicken or something similar for lunch or a salad and then around the same kind of thing for dinner. And I don't do beef.
I have faith in the Prilosec...I just have to wait now. Thank you for your support Selma.
U r welcome, u seem to be on the right path...I am sure u will see a difference once u r on the meds a while....do not skip a dose....I can notice it right away if I miss.
Have u also been check for a Hiatial hernia and post nasal drip?
Keep us posted how the meds work and how u r feeling.
