And I'm given these orally disintegrating tablets. Weird. Apparently they're new or something. Anyone have experience with them yet? I was quite happy with the capsules, actually.

So nobody's taken this stuff yet, huh? Well, I filled it early and it'll be a while before I try it. When I do I'll report in. I don't expect there'll be much of a difference. I'm not really even sure why they make it.

I forgot to come back and report on this one.

I'm still not sure why the doctor prescribed these instead of the tablets. I have no trouble swallowing stuff, and I get impatient with these things dissolving in my mouth.

They're not all that bad, though. I can't tell a difference in efficacy. I suppose they work a little quicker, maybe.
------------
The Pros -

They do not taste bad
They may work more quickly (or they may not...I don't know)

The Cons -

They're harder to handle. You have to be careful not to bust them up, and if you go out of town you have to carry them in blister packs instead of a bottle.
You can't just swallow them and get on with it
I went to sleep just after taking one once, and apparently didn't swallow it all. The remnants of it caused a horrible taste in my mouth that was very difficult to get rid of.

I think they make this for kids. Prevacid is apparently indicated for some other non-GERD disease that's specific to children.
