I personally don't see any harm in trying an otc med for acid reflux. You can try it for a few days and see if it works. Prilosec and Zantac is not an overnight fix. It can take a few days before the full benefit is seen. I don't know what type of insurance you have, but I have Blue Care Network and even though Prilosec is otc, I can get it filled as a prescript
ion. So instead of paying $20 a box, I only pay $5. So if you don't want to spend the full amount, go see your doctor and maybe they can write you a prescript
ion for it. If ever in doubt though, you probably should call your doctor.
