If you’ve ever had heartburn, you know just how painful and miserable it can be. Having a small case of heartburn from overindulging, having spicy foods or even rich of foods can cause a burning sensation in your stomach and throat that can be very painful at times.
I’ve always experienced heartburn from eating butter or citrusy things but it wasn’t until I was pregnant with my 3rd child that I REALLY experienced heartburn. I had this unreal amount of pain in my chest that I thought was a heart attack or something really bad! I couldn’t eat or drink and I had a tremendous amount of pain which ended me up in the hospital.
While waiting for some test results to come back, the nurse mentioned that I could have heartburn. What?! I couldn’t imagine heartburn causing that much pain but sure enough, it did! They told me to pick up Omeprazole and that I should feel relief soon. I was skeptical, but it worked!!
I ended up taking Omeprazole the rest of my pregnancy and it worked like a charm!
I took an oral pill that you swallow, but now you can buy an Omeprazole Orally Disintegrating Tablet!
Coming soon to a store near you, Omeprazole ODT is the only frequent heartburn medication available as an easy-to-take orally disintegrating tablet, with MELTech formula allowing the tablet to dissolve on your tongue easily. That is HUGE for people who don’t like to take pills – like me!
This tablet works exactly like the Omeprazole currently available but is a dissolving tablet that provides lasting heartburn relief! Plus it has a pleasant strawberry taste. You don’t need a glass of water to take this tablet which makes it perfect for on the go!
Omeprazole ODT can provide long-lasting relief from heartburn, for up to 24 hours and is the perfect choice for frequent heartburn sufferers. Because of the long-lasting effects, you take 1 dose every 24 hours for 14 days. You shouldn’t take it more than 14 days unless prescribed by your doctor. While some may feel relief in the first 24 hours, it may take 1-4 days for the full effect.
