I was on perscription Prilosec for about a week and a half and it worked great for acid but I couldn't afford it so I went to Walmart brand Omeprazole and 2 or 3 days later I was covred in hives for the next 7 days. Anyone else have an issue like this?
Also the nurse mentioned having a BRAVO to measure acid. I didnt think I had that much acid but she said that it may be the cause of my chest and throat muscles not wanted to work/spasms since I have a hard time swallowing. I'm on carafate now and seems to help but im not symptom free. Anyone have a bravo?
