Hi again, now thinking, you may need to go and see a Gastroenterologist, perhaps the "bad breath" is a warning sign with regards to your digistive system, so a check up would be the correct thing to do, that is my opinion and suggestion.


How long have you had bad breath?
Do you have any abdominal pain?
What other medications are you on?
How long have you been on Omeprazole?
Has anything changed (organism wise) in the past few days?

Just trying to help with the Qs, not trying to interrogate you, but sometimes a small thing that one does not pay attention to can turn into a nightmare. I am not saying it is your case, you know your body, and in the end you make your choices, once again I am only trying to help you.

All the best,

I think you are right Maso, & agree with you. I wonder if our friend here uses something that is giving him dry mouth like an antihistamine or something. That can sure do it. If you are brushing & flossing correctly, you might also check with your dentist, as a cavity can do this too. If you are otherwise feeling alright & do have dry mouth, they make a product called biotene that helps with that. Sugarfree gum helps too if you don't find the culprit. Smoking also causes foul breathe. Just some thoughts... Mary

No medical evidence of this side effect, my wife and some friends takes omeprazole with no such effect. See a gastro dc for additional medical evaluation. Regards
