Has anyone been on Prilosec and it just stops working one day? I've been on 20 mg for 2-1/2 years. Occasionally I will have heartburn anyway, but it generally doesn't last long, and if I double up on the Prilosec, it takes care of it. For the past couple of weeks, though, even taking two 20 mg Prilosec a day, I am having terrible heartburn that is just making me feel miserable! I'm being good, too, and not eating stuff I shouldn't! I made an appointment today to see my doctor in a couple of days, and hopefully she can do something for me. I don't know if I've become "immune" to Prilosec or what. I wonder what is the difference between Prilosec and Nexium? I've tried Protonix in the past and it didn't work at all for me. I can't live like this! Any advice for me to stew over while I wait for my appointment?
