Taking much more Prilosec than should be
Sorry if it's all been covered, i'm desperate.
I smoke and i drink too much
I have had bad heartburn since i was 18, at least as far as i can tell
Started Prilosec OTC about two years ago
The first 2 week phase worked rather well, but not for four months. only about a month.
Well, one thing led to another and I'm taking 2 pills a day and have been (yet somewhat inconsistenly) for the past 6 months.
Is this dangerous? What will happen? I feel that I am suffering from side effects, but not sure.
I have no health insurance.
EDIT: Decided more info would be helpful. I'm starting to take three a day because even 2 a day isn't cutting it anymore. I know what I'm doing is wrong, but I need to hear from more informed individuals about what is happening or will happen to me if i continue on this path and also just advice for better alternatives. Keep in mind i have no health insurance and I'm pretty much poor right now. In fact prilosec otc is becoming too expensive if i take 3 a day. just talk to me, i'll give more info if needed.
