I was prescibed this last Nov.2011, when I broke my left wrist. Dr gave me Vicodin, Ibu 600, and that prilosec Omprazole, I guess to keep my stomach protected. I do not take anything anymore that might mess up my stomach and been having such empty gas and bloating. Plus I have Osteoarthritis, which is getting worse, not better. I think Omprazole is the culprit... Advice?
If I'm not mistaken, omeprazole is a proton pump inhibitor. You can stop taking it since you have no gi problems. As far as omeprazole being the culprit for your worsening OA, I seriously doubt it. The I ibuprofen is and NSAID, supposed to decrease inflammation, but its a light weigh as far as decreasing the inflammation and pain associated with OA. As far as Vicodin goes, just has hydrocodone and acetaminophen in it. Might wanna talk to your doc for something that will help with OA, it never gets better, only worse as we age. I turned 50 and started falling apart.
Peace and my hippie opinion,
I too broke my left wrist in Nov. 2011! Luckily, I was spared any serious pain and did not have to take any pain meds.
I am taking Omprazole twice a day for the next 5 or so weeks following treatment for H. Pylori. When I take the dose I feel what I think is bloating that makes it hard to eat. Have you spoken to the your doctor? Have you been able to go off the Omprazole since this question was posted? How are you feeling now?
