Now just waiting to feel better. Symptoms are shortness of breath, uneasiness, cold amd hot flashes, noisiness in my head, feeling faintness, to name a few. My doctor recommended omeprazole for stomach rib pain. I've been tapering off lorazepam from 3+ a day to 1 1/2. Will be good when I'm off for good. Because these interactions are not easy.
It sounds like you were experiencing the side effects of a bad reaction to Omeprazole exclusively. According to the product information you should stop taking it immediately (which you have done) and contact your doctor immediately (unknown). I really doubt that an interaction between it and Lorazepam is the issue here (click on the link: https://www.drugs.com/interactions-check.php?interaction_list_id=183027224&drug_list=1750-0,1488-0) although weaning off Benzodiazapines can also cause some of the symptoms you have experienced which does not help you much. Sorry.
