... it is in a slow release form. After some 5 days I experienced great difficulty in swallowing and had pain in my throat.. Has anyone else experienced these symptioms??
Anyone else have difficulty swallowing when taking prilosec?
Added 24 Aug 2009:
I visited my doctor after the above comments and he said that difficulty swallowing is a side effect of this medication... it is a fairly rare one but does happen.. It also occurred when I tried a half dose. I have since started ranitidine (called Rani 2 in Australia) and that seems to be marvelously effective. Thanks Robo for your reply.

I checked a number of data sources and unfortunately couldn't find anything relating your symptoms to omeprazole.
However, the list of side effects for any drug is a work in progress and the drug regulators in each country actively encourage people to report any side effects they think may be related to a particular medicine. You don't have to be certain, just suspicious.
In the United States, you can report adverse reactions at http://www.fda.gov/Safety/MedWatch/default.htm
