Re: Stomach cancer?

I agree with tape, it's likely telling you that untreated GERD can lead to BArrett's, which puts you at an increased risk for certain cancers. Prilosec OTC is very similar to other PPIs (just weaker). Most PPIs are recommended for no more than 4-8 weeks because the drug companies haven't studied their longterm effects.
