Hi turlinda,


Thank you for your question. Prilosec is an over-the-counter medication that is in the same drug class as Aciphex. Both Prilosec and Aciphex work to prevent acid production in the stomach. Other treatment options include diet and exercise.You can read more about treatment options for acid reflux here, and this link will give you more information specific to Prilosec.


Best of luck,
