About Heartburn

Heartburn, which is sometimes referred to as acid indigestion‡, is a burning sensation in your chest and throat caused by acid reflux or GERD. When the contents of your stomach, including stomach acid, flow back up into your esophagus, it can lead to heartburn. This can happen due to a variety of reasons, including overeating, consuming certain types of food or drinks, and lying down after a meal.
Heartburn affects people differently. Some people may experience it every once in a while, while others may have it frequently. If you only experience heartburn occasionally, you can use antacids or H2 blockers to help ease the symptoms. Antacids work quickly, but only provide temporary relief. H2 blockers can last 6-12 hours. However, if you have frequent heartburn, these options may not be as effective.
For long-lasting relief, try taking a Proton Pump Inhibitor (PPI) such as Omeprazole. Omeprazole is the #1 Active Ingredient for Frequent Heartburn*. When taken as directed, Omeprazole can relieve frequent heartburn for up to 24 hours†.

† Not for immediate relief. May take 1-4 days for full effect.

* Based on iRi sales volume among PPI products sold in the United States, for the 52 weeks ending 01/01/23
