I have been on Prilosec for 15 years and while it has allowed me to eat freely I have been diagnosed with extremely low levels of Vitamins B-12, D, and Magnesium and the beginning stages of Osteoporosis. I recently developed pre-hypertension and rapid heartrate as a result of these deficiencies. I'm currently on B12 injections, megadoses of D and Magnesium. Get your levels checked!!! These deficiencies can cause extreme health hazards. I'm weaning off this drug immediately...using Apple Cider Vinegar (it seems to be working.)

Doesn't the apple cider vinegar cause any further acid reflux? I always wondered if it would make things better or worse.

Naturally, I am skeptical of everything online. http://inhousegeneric.com is legitimate. I placed my first order for the smallest amount possible. It arrived sooner than expected. I didn't pay the extra money for speedy air mail. I placed another order that was much larger and it came right on time. I will definitely use this company again for even larger orders now that I trust them. They also give you discounts every time you place an order which is cool. One thing to keep in mind is if you place a larger order, they will send half in one shipment, and then the other half after that to avoid customs scrutinizing your package. I am very happy, I no longer need to pay tons of money to see a doctor and therapist (and have them tell me a bunch of stuff I already know) in order to get my medication.

have been researching for months and reading reviews for each pharmacy and finally decided to take the plunge and order from one. After coming to the conclusion http://goo.gl/bLFWQG seemed the most safest and had the best feedback I ordered my pills. Was very apprehensive at first due to cc fraud, ell and they are good i would definetely recommend and purchase againspam and being generally ripped off (have not received one spam email and no cc fraud) order process and checkout was simple.
placed my order on my debit card and was charged straight away and received confirmation email immediately. choose the speedy del trackable and was advised del would be 7-9 days and order was placed on the 08/01. was just about to email them today to chase up as now 15 days but behold package had been posted through my door. packaging seems as shown on webiste. apart from small delay on advertised shipping time i have been generally please with the pharmacy.
wont be taking the pills for another few weeks yet but all going well and they are good i would definetely recommend and purchase again from them.

I've been on Prilosec for about 1 year, and my vitamin levels were ok. Possibly the problems can occur if it is used for a longer period, but as to me this drug works good.
