Prilosec is used to treat various acid-related stomach and esophagus problems. If you suffer from persistent heartburn (and have tried to treat it and changed your diet) Prilosec may be right for you. Prilosec (Omeprazole) is used to treat various acid-related stomachs and / or throat (esophagus) problems (e.g., GERD, ulcers, erosive esophagitis, or Zollinger-Ellison Syndrome). When using this medication to treat certain ulcers, it may be prescribed along with certain antibiotics (e.g., amoxicillin, clarithromycin).
Prilosec is a delayed-release 20mg tablet, taken once a day (every 24 hours) for 14 days before eating. You should not take it for more than 14 days or repeat a 14-day course more often than every 4 months unless directed by a doctor.
Do not crush, break, or chew the tablet. This decreases how well Prilosec works in the body.

Q. What is the purpose of an online consultation?
A: Online consultations are a unique and creative way to use Internet technology to connect patients to medical doctors. Using this ordering format, the patient can bypass having a traditional medical examination with a physician, and instead will fill out a questionnaire online, which is then dispatched to a medical doctor using our safe, secure ordering system. An online consultation is not a substitute for a traditional medical examination; it simply serves as a means for patients to access treatment for a number of medical conditions that do not require a full, in-person medical examination.
