Seal

Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Seal is physically striking—but those scars come from discoid lupus, not from tribal rituals as is rumored.

User Comments about Prilosec OTC
27 Sep 2011 I am completely satisfied with this product. I only have to take one 20 mg tablet every other day and that controls my acid reflux. I know right away when I've waited till the third day to take a tablet.

30 Sep 2010 I started taking Prilosec a month ago due to stomach problems and nausea. I have been able to resume a regular diet again so it works well for me

26 Jul 2010 Prilosec is semi-effective, but it must be over the counter because it is not 100%.

28 Jun 2010 I had a relatively mild case of acid reflux and heartburn and prilosec helped with the discomfort and eventually eliminated the problem completely
