Diet pill: My philosophy is that the best way to lose weight is not by dieting or a pill, but by changing your lifestyle to a healthier one. You don't need a drastic diet. Make small changes. Eat the right portions, eat 3-5 small meals a day, cut back on carbs and sugars, increase lean protein/veggie/fruit/water intake, ; start doing some cardiovascular exercise. Most physicians wouldn't suggest a diet pill. ...Read more

Is there any over-the-counter acid reflux medicine stronger than Pepcid (famotidine) complete and prilose otc?

Is there any over-the-counter acid reflux medicine stronger than Pepcid (famotidine) complete and prilose otc?

Sure...: Pepcid (famotidine) is an H2 blocker. That class of drugs relative to acid suppression is exceeded by the proton pump inhibitor (PPI) class, of which Prilosec was the first. Many subsequent PPI's have been introduced with longer durations of action. Although we can't endorse particular products on HealthTap, ask your pharmacist to recommend another PPI. Better yet, see your gastroenterologist for the right Rx. ...Read more
