Thanks for posting your query at DoctorSpring.com
I am Dr.R.K and I am pleased to assist you.
I went through your post about LPR and your queries about the medications.
Here are the answers to your queries -
1. Nexium OTC, Prilosec OTC and Prilosec all are PPI and have the same effects. You can take any one of these.
2. Zantac gives good relief. But PPI are better. So you can take any one of the above mentioned medications.
3. Yes you can mix the contents of Nexium capsule with applesauce and swallow it.
I hope that answers your question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
