Up until my first pregnancy, I had never experienced heartburn.

I used to think of it as a temporary inconvenience when other people would talk about it. Then I experienced it myself and it was not even close to an inconvenience. It was downright uncomfortable and it was much worse than I thought it could be. 

Fast forward many years and I still get heartburn, especially after enjoying my favorite meal, pasta with tomatoes or tomato sauce! When it happens I want relief, but the last thing I want to do is to swallow a pill. 

That is why I was so excited for the brand new formation of store brand Omeprazole- a disintegrating/dissolving heartburn tablet! It is the only one like it on the market. Omeprazole ODT can provide long-lasting relief from heartburn, for up to 24 hours which makes it a great option for those of us with frequent heartburn.

What was even more awesome was how affordable the Omeprazole ODT store brand was vs. the national brands like Prilosec and it treats the same symptoms. 

I was curious how Omeprazole Orally Disintegrating Tablets work, and I learned that it is the MELTech formula that allows the tablet to dissolve on your tongue easily. To me, that is a key factor in using it because I won’t delay or skip taking it like I would with a pill I had to swallow. Plus, it has a really pleasant strawberry flavor! You also don’t need a glass of water for this tablet, so it is perfect to take it on the go with you.

If you are taking the other currently available Omeprazole, this one works exactly the same way, but in a new form – a dissolving tablet that provides lasting heartburn relief. 

Here are a couple of things to remember: Dosage: 1 Dose taken every 24 hours for 14 days. Also, you should not take Omeprazole Orally Disintegrating Tablet for more than 14 days unless directed by your doctor.

Here’s to lots of delicious food in all of our futures and no more heartburn!

  • I started experiencing heartburn a few months ago and like you, I had no idea how bad it could be. I’ll have to check out the Omeprazole. It would be nice to have something I could keep with me that doesn’t require a drink!

  • My parents swear by Omeprazole for their heartburn. I hate heartburn, and I think I’d better start taking it too.

  • I have had heartburn since I was a kid! I hated the way that always influenced the food choices I made. I have never heard of this product before (maybe it is only American?) but it sounds like a great one!

  • My husband (and his dad!) have chronic issues and use Omeprazole anytime it starts to flare up again. It’s good stuff! I’m glad there are medications out there like this for people that struggle with heartburn! It’s a horrible thing to have!

  • I get really bad heartburn from some of the other meds I’m on for chronic illnesses, I need to look into this!

  • I have a lot of friends who could benefit from Omeprazole. They are always complaining and cannot eat certain foods because of heartburn.

  • My husband takes omeprazole daily. He used to take Prilosec and omeprazole works so much better for his acid reflux. I recommend it too!

  • That is awesome that it dissolves. I would make sure to have it on our trips just in case!

  • Strange but my heartburn went away after I stopped breastfeeding! Lately, however, it is coming back! I wonder if it is due to menopause. Either way I need to try this out!

  • This sounds like a great product. I wish I would have known about this back when I use to get heartburn. I’m certainly keeping this in mind if it ever comes back again.

  • A log of my of friends who could benefit from Omeprazole. They are always complaining about heartburn.

  • I have had heartburn as long as I can remember. It was awful when I was pregnant. This has been been a life saver.

  • I am not a huge heartburn sufferer, but certain soft drinks get me. I am going to snag a pack of omeprazole when I do a Target run next weekend. Thanks for the insights!

  • That sounds like a great relief for heartburn. Thanks so much for sharing this!

  • I used to have problems with this regularly, I took this and it helped but it turned out I had other medical issues that caused it. Funny thing is that my dog also suffered and his vet recommended this stuff. So funny how animals have so much in common with us, glad this works for all of us.

  • This sounds like such a fun time with the family! I love the family moments we share when we eat together.

  • I had no idea there was something out there that works for 24 hours! My husband could really use this. I am going to grab him some next time I am at the store. He suffers from heartburn a lot and could use some relief!

  • This sounds like a great product! I personally don’t suffer from heartburn, but have many friends that do. I’m sure they would appreciate the quick-dissolving feature.

  • This product sounds amazing! I hate heartburn, this will be so amazing to help it!

  • I suffer from heartburn a lot more than I used to. It’s so great to find a product that works!

  • I agree that heartburn can be very unpleasant. I haven’t had it a lot but when I did, all I wanted was a relief.
