I though I'd mention Omeprazole as it's probably saved my life

Many times i've almost inhaled stomach Acid while asleep ( like Jimi Hendrix did)

But the omeprazole cures it, I get it on prescription.

I've never heard of that medication.

It's awesome that it works for you though :)

Thanks for sharing!

I took 40mg Omeprazol a day to protect my stomach/intestines when I was prescribed 1600mg of ibuprofen daily for pain. The ibuprofen put a hole in my stomach and messed up my intestines anyway. I think under 'normal' circumstances, Omeprazol is a great med.
