I am a daughter of immigrants, and growing up, the rule was you eat whatever is on your plate. This went for the adults too. I never considered the possibility that someone *couldn’t* eat something, rather, they *didn’t want to*, and that was a no-go at our family table. As I got older, I noticed certain items disappear from our ingredient lists and older family members avoid foods but never really saying why.
Then, when I was 28, I got pregnant, and that’s when I learned what heartburn was. Oh boy, did I EVER learn. I couldn’t even pinpoint what would give me heartburn, but I was certain it would go away after I had my baby. Well, my baby just turned 11, and my heartburn issues are not only still here, but have become more of a daily occurrence than an occasional nuisance, which does not work for my lifestyle. I made it my mission to find a product that would not just work with my life, but provide the relief and comfort I so craved. That’s how I discovered Omeprazole Orally Disintegrating Tablets (also referred to as ODT).
Turns out, what I needed was right at my local Walmart, where I spend plenty of time running errands anyway. As a working mom, my life
Also, just like most moms, I rarely have time to stop and deal with things like a terrible burning feeling in my chest, or even worse, that burning in your throat. If I am not out running errands, I am with clients, so until now, I have had to put on a brave face, even when I was super uncomfortable, and sometimes, I wished I could reschedule lunch meetings, especially the ones that involve two of my favorite things: pasta and wine.
With Equate Omeprazole ODT, I don’t have to worry. I just set the box by my alarm clock, so I take it right before breakfast every morning. Since they are dissolvable, I don’t need to worry about grabbing a glass of water or something to drink with the tablet. I wake up, stretch, and just pop a tablet in my mouth and it dissolves before I even get to the bathroom. After a couple days (though some experience relief after 24 hours), I stopped worrying about heartburn and was able to focus on everything else I needed to do for the day.
Last night I was able to have my favorite pasta: my husband’s marinara sauce with gnocchi. It was delicious, and my heartburn didn’t ruin my night thanks to Omeprazole ODT!
