  3. Tired of omeprazole

    I’ve been on omeprazole for about 2.5 years. I’ve gotten to where I’m only taking it “as needed.” However, I’ve been having dizziness and arrhythmia and elevated heart beats. Is there any way to take care of this?

    I have had some of these side effects, but the one I was wondering is weight gain? I feel like I have gained some weight and can’t loose it. The stomach pain is gone which is a plus. But, I have had bad dreams, and some headaches.

    I have been using lansoprazole 30mg for many years and the doctor did not like Lanzor so he switched me to Omeprazole (Estohalt). I never has acid when taking Lanzor but have not felt the effects of Estohalt 40mg as effective and experience gas again when trying to sleep. Any answers?

    I find most of the side effects interesting. How do they know Omeprazole causes all their side effects? I have taken it for more years than I can remember and all I know is that if I didn’t take it I would have acid reflux (heartburn).

    thank you for your advices ..
    My health problem is different as I had a duodenal ulcer for long time, and it has been 5 years since I took one tablet PPI omeprazole 2 mg per day, while I was living well, I ate well, though fearing side effects, every time I tried to stop this drug omeprazole, but no way as cramps and reflux reappear and a stenosis in the duodenum, and then forced to pick up the omeprazole tablets. But since one year ago I am suffering cramping, heaviness and coldness in my feet, legs and all my body by lack of acidity for my muscles as omeprazole inhibits 80% acid, so I try natural products by stopping taking this medication but just more than 3 or 4 days but I always return to this omeprazole tablets, I am currently in the duality, or muscle pain or reflux, I beg you to guide me to what is best for me
    So far I have taken Manuka honey, olive oil, Kefir, cider vinegar, etc … etc … but it’s always tough and this persistent reflux.
    I still take Omeprazole wich I thank very much but still looking for solution?
    thank you

      I am sorry to hear about your condition. I also suffered acid reflux and had a duodenal ulcer. I took Prilosec and Aciphex for 5 years. I still was having problems and then I went to a Naturapathic practitioner and they were able to help me by putting me on a special diet. I had a lot of chicken soup and fish and I got Glutagenics from the company Metagenics. You need to contact a Naturapathic Health practioner in your area for advice. Sometimes regular doctors just can’t help you.

    I typed in my symptoms, headache, dizziness, joint pain and bloating, and wow seriously couldn’t believe its this medication, my dr. even sent me for an MRI, normal results, Was looking to send me to a neurologist… I have been taking Omeprazole 40 mg once daily for a year then we increased it to 40 mg twice daily, I’ve had headaches for a few months I passed them off as stress related, then about 3 weeks ago, dizziness , and some confusion were added to the mix along with pain in my thighs calves and ankles, couldn’t handle it, saw my dr., and he seemed puzzled, he knows my meds, I take Omeprazole for Barrett’s esophagus, I have stopped taking the med as of yesterday and now need an alternative for my GERD treatment, still headachy and dizziness , still bloated, I am glad I found this, thank you everyone for sharing your experiences with Omeprazole.

    Only just started using this over the last couple of weeks. First thing I noticed was constipation, then several evenings I had an unusual pain on the right side of my head by the temple. It wasnt a normal headache. I decided to search out for side effects and came across this site. I have stopped using the drug this morning and will search for an alternative.
