More details available on: https://www.drugs.com/sfx/omeprazole-side-effects.html, hope it helps?
Research is showing there could be a connection between the use of PPI's and Clostridium difficile infection, (a bowel infection). This is quite worrisome for health officials because currently Clostridium difficile ( c.diff) has mutated to Bl/NAP1/027 strain and is near epidemic proportion in U.S. hospitals. c.diff is treated with antibiotics. The antibiotics kill the bad and the GOOD bacteria in the intestins and so it becomes a vicious circle. PPI's change the acid/ph, and thus allow c.diff cells to vegetate.
