How Do Prilosec OTC Omeprazole Heartburn Medicine and Acid Reducer Tablets Work?
This Prilosec OTC heartburn medication works differently than many other heartburn relief options. While some heartburn medicines offer fast but brief relief, this Prilosec product provides you with long-term relief from chronic heartburn. The active ingredient in these omeprazole delayed-release tablets helps to actually reduce acid production, rather than simply neutralize the stomach acid in your system. These acid reducer tablets are ideal for those who suffer from heartburn at least two days a week.

After one to four days, you'll start to enjoy heartburn relief. Continue taking one Prilosec acid-reducer tablet each morning for 14 days for the full effect of this heartburn medicine.
Other Tips for Managing Heartburn
In addition to taking Prilosec OTC Omeprazole Heartburn Medicine and Acid Reducer Tablets, there are ways you can help alleviate heartburn to find even more relief. After you eat, try not to bend over or lie down, as this can cause acid to more easily rise up to the esophagus. Avoid eating before bedtime, and avoid foods that often cause heartburn, like spicy, rich or fatty foods. Eating slowly and controlling portions can also help with chronic heartburn.
