Well, increasing the amount of time between doses didn't work either. And now stomach feels like it's digesting itself even though I did take the extra Prilosec. Guess the acid rebound made it sore again.
I take 20mg Prilosec every morning, and then every OTHER evening I take an extra 20mg Prilosec. So basically it works out to 30mg Prilosec every day. I also 20mg of Pepcid every day (10mg at 2pm and 10mg at 8pm).
Am I taking too much acid reducing medication? I've tried several times to wean off, and even if I do just a little, I end up in pain again, have to go back on it, and it takes several weeks to heal again. I wonder if I should just resign myself to the fact that I may have to take this for the rest of my life. I don't even eat anything that could hurt my stomach, no coffee, soda, tomatoes, etc.
