I discovered after about six months that my symptoms of: serious loin pain, extreme lethargy, extreme thirst and mouth dryness were due to this drug. I have been taking it for about 8 years for Barrats oesophagus with no problems. I had a hiatus hernia resection about 4 years ago .Have many others suffered from these side effects please
Thanks for sharing. I take omeprazole and have for about 6 months. I have not had these side effects. And upon reading about the side effects on this site your side effects are not listed excluding the tiredness. Are you sure these symptoms are from the omeprazole? You have been taking the opmeprazole for 8 years? The directions do say to stop periodically but when I did and my symptoms returned so I went back on it. So what does your doctor say?
hi i am new to this but i was diagnosed a few months ago with barretts epithiliuem and a sliding hiatus hernia i was taking 20 mg omeprazole for months but i was still experiencing really bad heartburn which made me sick after everything i ate so they upped my dose to 80 mg a day but it's not agreeing with me as i feel very tired all the time and im aching but im also experiencing cramps in my arms and legs, fingers and toes and im hot all the time especially my feet i've also experienced a pain in my chest which wasnt very nice and headaches did you suffer from any of these?
