I have small hernia 3 cm / I am checking liver functions test is ok - is there new medicine better than omeprazol?
If I understand you correctly , you are currently taking Mora for pain? Zycam due cold or allergies?; & omprozole for aicd redcution for a cyst I am assumming in the esphsoges(SP)?? Is this correct? I personally take omprazole 20mg once a day, ususally as soon as I get up in the morning, for acid reflux. If I did not take it I wouldn't be drinking this coffee right now! Now my insurance still pays for it which is unusally because you can but it OTC, but as long as they keep writing it I keep getting it. I have found this to be the best med for my acid reflux,(GERD). I tried to stop it as the FDA released a statment recently stating long term use led to more femur fractures, but my tummy hurt all the time without it.
Talked with my Doc, & he said albeit I have seveve ostioporosis, we don't want that nasty stomach acid burning a whole in my esopheugs either, so back on 20mg a morning of omprazeline. It works wonders for me. Have even been havibg fresh cucumber & green onion on my salads with no burping etc... I have allergies too & use Actifed, & chrontic pain for which I take hydrocodone, 10/325mg 6 times a day when I remember. Ha! Hope this helps you out. Hope this helps you out...
I too take omeprazole for acid reflex (GERD) and have for months and months. My doctor claims that it is ok to take for extended periods of time though I have read that it can affect magnesium levels in the body. The following link lists many medications for acid reflux:
Majority are proton pump inhibitors like omeprazole (prilosec) so don't know that you'll find one any better. Best to discuss this with the doc.
I think they have many variations and combinations that are almost the exact same thing if not but I think for the most part as long as you tolerate the medication, that your doctor continues advising you to continue on it then as long as it's doing the work then you're safe taking it, since you are having laboratory evaluations done then if it's causing you a problem the doctor wil then be aware of it. take care
