I totally agree with outtlaw. Pills that have a coating have it for a reason - it's to protect you and to allow the med to work properly. I believe the safe dosage is only 2 a day and if you are still having troubles then you should contact your doc to see about being on something stronger. You can also supplement your PPI with another antacid such as Tums, Rolaids etc. I do that on occasion when my Prilosec isn't working.
