  1. My husband has been on Omeprazole at least 12 years—NOW—do we discontinue -or what ???

  2. The common doctor will not even tell you such a simple advice as sleeping on your left side and not eating any kind of acid producing food especially before going to bed and I was prescribed two of these kind of acid blockers at once and one of them is known to actually cause an upsurge of acid and I just about died and now I don’t take them at all I just watch my diet work carefully and use baking soda and water or minimally or something such as Maalox or Tums

    • i take zantac sometimes then remembered baking soda so yes baking soda and water is perfect works fast i mostly use that now and then sleep on left side

  3. I have taken Omeprezole for 6 or 7 years. I am constantly fatigued.

  4. Well I have been on it for bout 12 years and recently was doubled to 40 milligrams a day by a dr and added sucralose four times a day to help it Along. With all this news-then if it’s so bad bad then why do almost all drs prescribe it over the other reflux meds?

  5. I have been on it for over 10 years for Barrett’s esophagus and acid reflux with small hiatal hernia. If I don’t take it, which I never do forget, I have acid reflux that night. My pharmacist told me to keep taking it, because the pros outweigh the cons. I am tired a lot though, so don’t know if it’s related or not. Would like to stop it, but I am afraid to with the Barrett’s.

  6. My hubby had acid reflux and died from esophageal cancer. He took omeprazole and lived on tums and Roland’s. I have been taking apple cider vinegar and that really helps, there’s a belief that to much acid is because your stomach is not producing enough so it makes more which causes problems. Even when it’s difficult to swallow a tablespoon in tepid water it has always helped my acid reflux

    My boyfriend had Chrone’s disease as a child which resulted in having his intestine shortened (22 inches removed , 1/4 of colon removed) SEVERE acid reflux daily. What is the best medicine to take?

    I ask my doctor about this and she said it’s much worse to “not” control the acid reflux. It can cause cancer of the esophagus,if left untreated. I hope “Whatever doesn’t kill us makes us stronger”!!

  9. I have been talking this for 2 and half years now do I need to stop taking it

  10. It’s true this stuff like any drug is not good for you. I was on it for over 10 years. Digestive enzymes and probiotics were used to wean off of it. I also should add that this website includes fake news. Just check out their story and 1,000,000 pounds of rats meat sold as chicken wings. No credibility.

  11. Survivor of esophagus cancer. Have to take this with b12. Works for me and after 10 years, I’m still here. (And not fatigued).

  12. I am taking this and dont plan on stopping unless my doctor tells me to. If i dont take it i become very ill. Have no problem with it.

  13. I took Prilosec since the 80s ( before it was approved). I feel like I’ve been tired my whole life. About six years ago I read about Apple cider vinegar and honey being good for acid reflux , so I tried it. It works better than any pill. I use 1 tablespoons of raw apple cider vinegar, 1 tablespoon (or a bit more) of honey in 8 ounces of warm water. At first it won’t be the best drink you ever had , but after a few days i cane to like it. Now I have Parkinson’s Disease. I wonder often if the pills could have had something to do with my present problems.

    I cured my stomach problems with Liquid Probiotics in the refrigerated section at the Grocery store or pharmacy. Amazing, 2 bottles and I was good to go. Now I just eat a tablespoon of plain yogurt every day, I can eat what I want I was on everything the Dr. wanted to throw at me.. I was on emeprazole..

  15. I have had gastric acid for many years and I don’t take any of those things, I take Turmeric and it works really well for me. Turmeric with black pepper.

  16. Turmeric with black pepper, found at COSTCO in pill form.

  17. Don’t take or do something just because a doctor said to. sometimes they are the most ignorant regarding some medicines and diseases. Research, check with a pharmacist and get info about your problem from different sources… and then weigh the pros and cons. Your doctor will never care about you as much as you do.

  18. Gosh, I’ve been on this for about 15 YEARS! If I don’t take it Ihhavelava from hell! I spoke to my gastro doc aabout my concerns and said the low dose I’m on isn’taanything to worry about. I take the no-frills OTC kind.
    I do like the idea of weaning off of it with apple cider vinegar and/or baking soda. I will be discussing this with my general practitioner and also have my B12 level checked.

  20. I have been taking the Equate brand omeprazol w/magnesium along with a B12 supplement for years and I don’t seem to have any problems…unless I run out. Within 2-3 days I have heartburn! My doctor keeps close watch on what I take.
