1 pill each morning. 24 Hours. Zero heartburn.(1)What's better than zero heartburn? Zero heartburn with a burst of wildberry flavor, that's what. Unlike some other heartburn treatments, Prilosec OTC blocks the acid that causes frequent heartburn so you don't get heartburn in the first place. If you experience heartburn two or more days a week, treat it by taking one Prilosec OTC pill each morning before eating. Just one pill a day can provide relief from frequent heartburn symptoms for 24 hours.(1)When you eat, millions of tiny pumps in your stomach produce acid to break down food - heartburn occurs when these excess acids reflux into your esophagus. Unlike antacids, which offer fast, but only short-term relief, Prilosec OTC directly blocks many of these pumps, reducing acid production at the source. Prilosec OTC is clinically proven to treat heartburn for 24 hours with just one pill a day, and You Can't Beat Zero Heartburn(1).
