Please forgive me for being unable to remember the person's name who told me about Ranitidine.  I recieved the package friday.  It came in the mail, with a sealed box of two sealed bottles containing 190 tablets.  I called my rheumy about them, but he never called back.  So I asked my pharmicist, and he said it would be ok to take them along with the meds I already take.
So I don't have to worry for awhile about my prescriptions not being refilled for prilosec or nexium.  Time to speak to the doctor about it, and get his office staff to call Silverscript to get me back on Nexium.
Thank you so, so much for telling me about these pills.  I over reacted again maybe, but the immediate ordering of these pills off the internet worked for me.  The shipping and handling was so high because they were sent priority mail in the USA.  But even with the shipping and handling it was only 21 dollars for enough pills to last me for three months taking 150mg twice a day.
I looked up on the internet how much to take.  and the bottle paper I think had it on there too.  but I started taking them yesterday, and so far they are working almost as good as Nexium.  the cheapest over the counter generic for prilosec was nine dollars for 14 capulets.

Hester, I'm glad the pills are working for you. I wasn't sure what rantadine was, so I looked it up and it looks like it is generic Nexium. It can be frustrating that a lot of these meds can be so expensive once they are available over the counter, so it's always nice to find ones that are more affordable.
