Yes, I do! Here's an exact quote from the very first line of the 3 page instructions:

"Common Uses: This medicine is a proton pump inhibitor (PPI) used to treat heartburn or irritation of the esophagus caused by gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)."

That said, I decided to continue taking it for possible ulcers.

NOW, no more discussion of my medical issues. The subject is closed!

On the subject of heartburn.
I have heard that a teaspoon of yellow mustard will stop heartburn in its tracks.
I have never tried it, but was interested in knowing if anyone here has tried it or even heard of it working?
It seems it would aggravate heartburn?

I never get heartburn anymore as I take 1 generic Prilosec 40 mg every morning. So I am just curious.

I would think mustard will cause HB rather than stop. I find that one or two Tums do the trick on the rare occasion that Omeprazole (20 mg) fails me.

However, if you're interested in home remedies, a half tsp of baking soda in some water works well too.

Along with political and religion, I think, unless you have at least an RN after your name, medical advice should be left in the doctor's office and not brought here to DC. Just MHO!

There's a difference between offering medical advice and sharing information and experiences.
