In brief: What R U treating?

If your goal of taking Prilosec was symptom relief, then the drug can be discontinued when no longer needed.
However, if Prilosec was dispensed to therapeutically heal a damaged esophagus and stomach, then you are a long way from, but on your way to, cure based on symptom-response.
