Personally interesting post. I've been trying to wean myself off of 40 mgs of Prilosec as of late, after being on it for about 11 years. However, I've found that I need much more than 600 mgs of Rantidine to start. I've been using 1,500 mgs of Rantidine daily. Anything less, I definitely feel the sour stomach/nausea. I would like to hear your experiences with equating 40 mgs of Prilosec to 600 mgs of Rantidine.

It is generally considered that PPIs (Prilosec, Nexium etc.) are better than Ranitidine for acid reflux. Consult your doc anyway.

I take 40 mgs. of Prilosec OTC every day. Zantac and the other acid reflux meds. over the counter before Prilosec didn't help me.
