Get heartburn much? If you do, Prilosec OTC might be a good option for you. Prilosec OTC gives you 24 hour heartburn relief from your heartburn if you suffer from it, which I’m sure is a lot of people out there. However, you want to be able to eat the foods that you want, right? I honestly didn’t know too much about Prilosec OTC before today, so I decided to do a little bit of research.
Here’s how it works, from their website:
When you eat, millions of tiny pumps in your stomach lining create acid to break down food. Normally your lower esophageal sphincter (LES) works as a door, opening and closing to let food pass from your esophagusHEARTBURN GLOSSARY Esophagus: Tube connecting the mouth to the stomach; a passageway for food; part of the digestive system. into your stomach.
When your LES relaxes, excess acids flow up, or reflux, into your esophagus. This creates the painful sensation of heartburn.
Prilosec OTC works by directly blocking many of the active stomach pumps that produce acid before they start. Prilosec OTC is a proton pump inhibitor (PPI). The way Prilosec OTC works to fight heartburn sets it in a whole separate class from other treatments such as histamine blockers or antacidsHEARTBURN GLOSSARY Antacids: Common treatment for heartburn symptoms, neutralizing acid in the stomach for a short period of time..
