I was diagnosed with acid reflux a month ago - I'm assuming LPR, since I don't have heartburn, but he didn't specify - and was put on Omeprazole (Prilosec). He told me it could take up to 6-8 weeks to work. I've been on it four weeks now, and it's been three weeks since I cut out (or nearly cut out) coffee, pop, tea, whole milk, and my beloved chocolate from my diet. I have yet to see any improvement in my severe coughing (my main acid reflux symptom); if anything, it's gotten worse, though my allergies are horrible and I'm on my third sinus infection in eight weeks now.

With the meds and the diet changes, how long before I should expect to see improvement? Is 6-8 weeks reasonable, or should I be feeling better by now?
