Strange: Your question makes no sense to me. How do you know you have ulcers? Did a doctor tell you that? How did he diagnose you? Furthermore, I've never heard of peptic ulcer disease in a 25 year-old, unless you are abusing NSAIDs. Who told you to take Prilosec? Do you know how this drug works or what the risks and potential benefits are of taking it?
