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!
