I'm 22 years old and was diagnosed with GERD two mongs ago after experiencing symptons for over a year. I'm prescribed Omeprazole (prilosec) which hasn't seemed to ease the pain at all. After telling my doctor this he said it could take time for my body to get used to the medicine and actually start putting it to use. I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem with their acid reflux and medicnie not working for you? I have severe heartburn all day, worse in the mornings, some mornings I will throw up stomach acid, I've tried taking zantac while taking my prescription, also drinking plenty of water and tums/rolaids but nothing seems to relieve the pain even a little. Also, I know you are not supposed to consume alcoholic beverages because of their high acidity, but is it normal after one sip of a drink to immediately have terrible heartburn?
Thanks for anyone who can help, I really cant afford to keep going to the doctor.
