I quit Prilosec cold turkey last week after taking it for 3 years. I've been reading so much information lately indicating negative side effects from Prilosec that I decided to not taper it off gradually. Every day I've taken a couple teaspoons of raw apple cider vinegar and a bit of honey mixed in half a glass of water first thing in the morning and again during the day if I've had any pain.

So far it seems to have an appetite suppression effect. But I've also recently gone gluten-free so that could also be the cause of my lowered appetite.

It's been a week and I'm still having some reflux issues, so today I added a dietary supplement called Heartburn Free with ROH10. You take one every other day for 10 days and it's supposed to help heal the problems causing the reflux. We shall see.

The apple cider vinegar tastes pretty awful, but I intend to keep using it while it seems to be helping. Overall I feel pretty great!

The glow of one warm thought is to me worth more than money.

I was taking Prilosec too, and my symptoms also worsened. I did some research on line and came across a product called "Stop Acid Reflux". It's an old Amish formula consisting of organic apple cider vinegar, all natural ginger and garlic juice. I take 1 tablespoon in a glass of water in the morning before I eat. So far, I am having success with it. It also cuts the fat around your midsection, which is another cause of ARD. Go to www.StopsAcidReflux.com

I did it once and it worked great for over six months, maybe longer. Have lost track how long ago I took it.

A lot of people do with good results. I don't - I use Omeprazole 20mg bd, and without problems.

I drink one tablespoon straight of apple cider vinegar and it has helped me more than anything. I take medication also.

Does anyone else do this?

I was prescribed Prilosec and took it for about 8 months. I took it at night, and that was when my symptoms worsened. I would get horrible sour stomach and had to sleep sitting straight up or I'd wake up extremely nauseous. Now, I drink 1 TBSP of ACV in 8 oz of water 3x/day (30 minutes before each meal). I also drink some if I am nauseous or having esophagus pain. It works almost instantly.

I know it isn't for everyone, but does anyone else do it with good results?

The only time it doesn't work is if I eat larger than normal portions or a lot of a trigger food (chocolate, coffee, tomatoes). Eating fast also triggers some reflux, but no where near what it was like when I was on Prilosec.
