Yes, it does not cause dependence

Yes, but you may find that your heartburn returns.

Prilosec is no long term cure. It will fix the heartburn as long as you are on it. A hockey buddy has had a very bad go - loss of sensation in in fingertips and other maladies. I have been on it for a long, I would estimate about 8 years and after reading up am concerned about the long term impact. I tried Previcid but no luck like Prilosec as soon as I stop taking it my heartburn is right there. Going to try Ranitidine... we'll see. Happy to chat on this if someone had some wisdom.
