... protect my stomach on the days I don't take pred ?
If you have been directed to take it every day, then yes. If you have been directed to skip omeprazole on non-prednisone days, then no. The usual duration for omeprazole is not longer than 14 days OTC, and up to 4-8 weeks in some disease states. If you have been taking it for 4 weeks or longer, I would consult your doctor or pharmacist to ensure that it wasn't left in your medication therapy unnecessarily, but if it hasn't been at least 4 weeks I wouldn't worry about it.

If I slowly stop taking omeprazole, will I feel any side effects such as stomach cramps, leg cramps?
