I now know that this drug causes liver, kidney and gastric tumors, polyps, disease, and dysfunction. When gastrin levels return to normal, acid secretion slows, writes Reimer.
I tried to stop three times and always went running back to the medication -- my stomach burnt so bad it felt like a real fire. During the abdominal pain sessions after food I would be extremely bloated and uncomfortable, sometimes confused, not able to focus, constipated, and generally feeling like my guts were going to implode.
Jim Philadelphia suburbs August 19, at 3: I had an MRI done on my Kidneys and found a tumor. They have not helped me. Hi Andre, I'm not a doctor or anything like that, but I would like to tell you.
Alas, for some people they will need to rely on them for life. Prescription omeprazole is used to treat the symptoms of GERD, allow the esophagus to heal, and prevent further damage to the esophagus. I've had an endscopie done nearly every year sincethe last one was at the end of When I forgot to take the drug two days in a row, I experienced heartburn hell.
Take omeprazole exactly as directed. I know every case its different but I knew I had to stop the omeprazole. However, if it is almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue your regular dosing schedule. The easiest way to lookup drug information, identify pills, check interactions and set up your own personal medication records. Today is the pepcid today but I'm going to quit starting today and only take the omeprazole every other day.
These were symptoms they did NOT have before!
After 12 years taking it I got arthritis, which no one in my family has as far back as we know and my grandmother died at and a slew of things that came from not absorbing minerals properly, including magnesium. Omeprazole is now being linked to dementia in some studies. My fingers are all yellow because of the tumeric.
If you do get a side effect, it's usually mild and will go away when you stop taking omeprazole. I began to cut my pills down from 20 mg. Sometimes your doctor will increase your dose of omeprazole if it isn't working well enough. Modifying your diet — Eating large amounts of processed foods and sugars is a surefire way to exacerbate acid reflux as it will upset the bacterial balance in your stomach and intestine.
