Is anyone else having this problem?
In my opinion,the first place to go is the pharmacist who dispensed the Prilosec and if you purchased it over the counter, a pharmacist still can help you. Medications new to the body can cause many side effects and the pharmacist should be able to tell you if this will go away and the amount of time it may take. Just wondered what the problem is that you are taking Prilosec as the problem may be worth a few side effects that may eventually subside.
Dry mouth is a sign of dehydration-I ended up in th ER with IVs with that. It stops gastric acids through dehydration. My doctor and I were talking about that 2 weeks ago. Something that neutralizes the acids like Zantac might be better. They take longer to work, unless you have a regime. Also get the stomach in balance with yogurt- Bacteria being out of balance cause the bad taste-breath and even gas. I eat a yogurt every day-and the doctor was correct-My throat was burned pretty bad when I was young. Your husband probably has the throat burns and eating a lot at one time can cause gas-like I said-we discussed these very things a few weeks ago. Good luck-see your doctor-I find most family doctors are pretty sharp on this-
