In brief: Yes.

Prilosec is a medication known as a proton pump inhibitor.
It functions by reducing the amount of acid produced in the stomach. Acid is the irritant that can cause dyspepsia or indigestion, and removing or reducing this irritant can be helpful. However, it is best to see your doctor before starting this so that other possible causes to dyspepsia can be ruled out.
