when is the best time to take omeprazole 20 mg, i have acid in my stomach due to a medical condition i have for life Chilaiditi syndrome, and i have read that its best before food, but need to take 5am in the morning when i get up ( go to the loo) otherwise i vomit, i have to take two per day at present i take one in the morning, one at night about 8pm have dinner at 5pm, i think that im doing this all wrong doctors said that i have to work out whats best for me, problem is im not sure what im doing wrong, they have said that i can take two at the same time, but when ? or do i wait till im going to eat? still have two a day? really need to get to grips with this as its ruling my life. I decided to treat this like ibs even though its not, but have found that my digestive system needs a better meal plan because what im eating now (same food as before dignosed) isnt helping, got some books coming with reciepes to give that a try, that may help with the acid, consipation, diahera, vomiting. Anyone with any tips on what not to eat that helps stop acid or drinks etc would love to hear from you as ive been dignosed like this now for 18 weeks and need advice as doctor cant do anymore, have fibregel for non going days, imoduim for to much days, metroclopramine for vomit days and omeprazole everyday for life. oh and take quitelife to calm me nerves.
