Can you take half of a Prilosec?

The main difference is this: You can open capsules to split the dose, but you should not break the Prilosec OTC caplet in half to split the dose, because the Prilosec OTC caplet uses an enteric coating to delay dissolution until the drug has passed into the small intestine, where it will not be destroyed by stomach

Beside this, can you just stop taking omeprazole?

Usually, you can stop taking omeprazole without reducing the dose first. If you've taken omeprazole for a long time speak to your doctor before you stop taking it. Stopping suddenly could make your stomach produce a lot more acid, and make your symptoms come back.

Do Ppis stop all acid production?

The heartburn returns because the disease is unmasked by removal of the drug that controlled the symptom. Rebound secretion of excessive acid has a minimal, if any, effect in producing symptoms. This is good medicine because PPIs do not cure GERD or stop reflux. They simply control pain.
