thanks I have just heard about the details of losec capsules. Very impressive. being a cronic patient of dudinal ulcer your kind advice is needed that either its use would be useful to get the said disease cured.
I have been on PPI drugs for nearly 20 years. My health care professional has begun to get me off of them probably because of the latest info about problems with long term use. I have lost weight prior to this and stopped alcohol, very fatty meals, caffeine. I had been excercising more in the last year and have lost weight and increased my energy and fitness. Magnesium supplementation has helped greatly and I am more relaxed and get the best sleep in years. A few years ago, I came down with a case of Giardia. As a bowhunter for deer, I had used a urine based attractive scent and I am sure that I accidentally ingested some from contamination on my hand. I am certain that the lack of stomach acid due to the PPI action of Omeprazole contributed to the infective nature of the Giardia, as the acid of the stomach could not provide the first line of defense from this infection. If that is possible, you have to wonder how many other infective agents we can be exposed to and become ill just because the acid of our stomach isn't working to protect us.
I took omeprazol for acid reflux 40mg for 7 days. i stopped because i started to feel slight pain in my right shoulder which progressed to my left, sharp needle like pain. Then the next day i started to feel pain in my finger joints and toes. 4 days have passed and i still feel these pains. Im really worried and starting to wonder if this drug can cause permanent arthritis in just 7 days of taking them. i'd like to think that this is just joint pain that will eventually go away. Any Advice? i will be seeing my doctor soon.
Gaani Tanadeh I'm sorry I just got this message no a CT SCAN CAN not . you need to have a test done when they put this tube down your throat to your stomach you will not feel anything at all you will be under I just had it done in may and that's how they determined that I had GERD. I also used to take Mortrin and ibprouben alot and then they told me it was wearing away the lining of my stomach I can't even eat spaghetti which is my favorite food or drink cokes which was my favorite drink omg I have to watch what I eat
memoo I developed a bad cough during Omerprazole so I stopped it for 2 weeks and the cough eased up. And guess ehat?
I decided to take Omerprazole again and my cough is back.
So stopping it for good and going back to my doctor.
