After years of taking Omeprazole now my insurance wont pay for it. Is there an alternative drug? Do I have to be weaned off of Omeprazole?
My insurance wont cover Omeprazole anymore?

There are 7 different types of ppi's . Omeprazole is just the cheaper of them . find out witch one of the seven works for you and is covered and heck yes you need to ween yourself off a ppi but not when switching ppi's . I take famotidine 20mg twice a day , because I don't like the way ppi's slow my digestive trac down and it works for .
