I have been on Omeprazole for two weeks now and I have major skin itching. I have no rash but the itching is now keeping me awake at night. Is there anything I can take or do to help?

Rather unfortunate, it is indeed the side effect of taking Omeprazole you have 2 opitions. 1. Is to seek medical attention; 2. Is to try a home remedy for itching & the remedy is: warm a little coconut oil & put some camphor in it to melt, it not only will mask the smell of coconut but acts as cooling agent, apply this to the area where you have the itching, hope this will work? It certainly will not have any side effects & keep the skin from being dry & itchy.
Please do let me know if you happen to try the home remedy, be well & safe!
