Have you tired Nexium? Nexium sometimes works better for some than Prilosec. You'll have to get an Rx for it from your Dr. Another thing you can try is to elevate the head of your bed slightly by placing blocks or bricks under the top legs of your bed. You can also try a wedge pillow to keep you more upright when you sleep so that acid doesnt travel up the esophagus by gravity when you are laying flat.
