Prilosec dosage for LPR

The OTC Prilosec that I have is only 20mg. I understand that I should be taking 80mg/day, does anyone know if it's ok for me to take TWO of the 20mg Prilosec twice a day?

I think 80mg sounds a lot.
Is this recommended by your Dr. If you are not sure why not ask the
Pharmacist in your Chemist or your Dr.
Best to be on the safe side.
