Re: Taking much more Prilosec than should be
Taking 2 Prilosec OTC a day is the equivelant of 40mg of Prilosec. When I was on Prilosec I took 80mg a day- consistently. So, you probably aren't gonna OD and end up in the hospital, but you should see a doctor and get your reflux evaluated for real. You need to know if reflux is really your problem.
I will say stop drinking and smoking. It's just making things worse.
I'll also say that taking tums and rolaids too close to the Prilosec will render the Prilosec useless. A downfall that's seldom mentioned.
Type 1 diabetes- Paradigm 523 w/ Humalog and RT Sensor
