I've been on daily prilosec for oh....years. I went off 2 days ago because I've been low-carbing and that usually eliminates my heartburn/indigestion. Well, I started with a slight touch of heartburn in the middle of last night...not bad enough to get up and find the tums. Today I have had heartburn pretty much non-stop since breakfast. In trying to stop it I've had 10 Tums smoothies, 2 prilosec tablets, 1 Tums dual action and even a good swig of Pepto and NOTHING has stopped the pain for long.
So my question is this...how long does it take for Prilosec to kick in? I've been all through their website and couldn't find that info out.
I'm really hoping that if I pick up with my 'usual' dose of prilosec in the morning that i will finally be caught up and get some relief *sigh*
