As a nurse, I know that those labels are put on the box to cover the physician and medical care teams butts if something should happen. Malpractice insurance rates are through the roof, so it's usually just an extra precaution.
My situation is different. (Short version) I have been TTC for a year and ended up having an IUI to get pregnant. I ended up having a chemical pregnancy, but my list of approved meds by my OB that I was taking included Prilosec. I have GERD and a hernia, both of which are pretty severe. If your heartburn is occasional...try tums or rolaids. IF it's more severe, ask your doc about a Zantac or Pepcid, but remember...these usually take a few days to work and need to be taken over the course of a few weeks. What did your doc say to take?
