I wanted to ask if anyones doctor had them take prilocsec in the morning? I realize its for heartburn but my doc said it might help with the urgency.
I have taken it 3 days in a row and do not have nearly as much urgency but I am also on day 8 of the spinach sunflower seed diet and am not sure if that is what is helping. Either one, I hope it continues. Just curious as I have not seen Prilosec mentioned too much on here.

I've been on Prilosec for about 2 years or so now. I take one in the morning but it's for my acid reflux. I've never heard of it being used for urgency though.

Day eight is about when I started really noticing a difference on my spinach diet.
