Prilosec is available over the counter now. I don't know how much it cost. Also, I believe Tagamet and Zantac work to decrease acid production. You may want to call your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
I've found the price of most prescription acid blockers to be expensive, even generics. If I where you I would explain the situation to your Dr. and just ask for more samples. Trust me, they have plenty. Ask what they suggest for a long term solution for your problem. I've been there before. Feel better soon.
