... Hamilton, It sounds like LPR if you are having throat symptoms. None of the OTC meds are known to work on LPR, so I recommend demanding a prescription. But I'll give you my opinion on the OTC meds anyway. For frequent or chronic heartburn, Prilosec OTC is the best. However, it does not work on throat symptoms and LPR.
