I was taking 20 mgs for a month then doc suggested to double the med because I was still getting stomach pains. Gastro doc suggested I double the dose..taken 12 hours apart. I was slammed with all the major side effects. :( I have stopped all the med, but need to know how long it will take to clear for my system before I go back to just the 20 a day.
Omeprazole - How long does it take for 20 mgs taken twice a day to leave you system?

I made a HUGE error in my previous question....I was taking 40 mgs twice a day. I am on my 6th day without the med, but my joints are still very sore, but much better.
antisal; It surprised me but omeprazole 20mg clears your system pretty fast you should be fine in just a few days yes 2 but if your side effects were pretty bad at 2 a day you should make sure your feeling a bit better prior to starting it again at one a day. Have a nice evening Chuck1957
