I have slight osteoporosis and have been taking high doses of prilosec for years. I am postmennopausal.
Thank you for your question! Prilosec belongs to the class of medications known as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). Other PPIs include Prevacid, Nexium, Protonix, and Aciphex, but Prilosec is the only one that is available over the counter. I hope this helps!
Best of luck,
In light of the link between PPIs and osteoporosis, what treatements are available besides PPIs?
