I can't seem to get rid of heartburn. I have had it for almost two weeks. My doctor said to use an over-the-counter medication, but it isn't helping. Is there something else I can try?
You could try some of the preventive things. Also, it may take a while for the increase in Prilosec to take effect. You may also want to keep a food log to see if that is making a difference. If you don't get better with these things then you need to go back to your doctor to get re-examined to make sure that the reflux is indeed what is causing your symptoms.
P.S. Here are some links on heartburn, reflux, and GERD that you might find helpful:
