Yes, it definitely can cause flareups of gout as I take Omeprazole and took it for 12 years and have had the gout off and on... went off the Omeprazole (generic for Prilosec) and it goes away. I take the above every few days as I have so many side affects from it.
Sorry you are experiencing it but the answer is "yes".
