DO NOT TAKE- I started this drug just as the pandemic started and weighing days my reflux got worse and I got extreme anxiety and panic attacks which I had never experienced before. At the time I did not link the two as I thought the increase in symptoms was due to stress of the pandemic. About 4 months into taking omeprazole I started getting UTI’s which I never had experienced before. I was getting 1 every 4-6 weeks and could not understand why. I also had constant bowel problems either diarrhoea or constipation, along with heart palpitations. A year into taking the drug and with worsening reflux symptoms the doctor double my dose to 40MG per day. Within 2 weeks or this I started experiencing bloating stomach symptoms. With the doctors telling me I had IBS or a dietary intolerance I continued to take this medication for a further 8 months! The UTIs and bloating proceeded to get worse, with constant stomach pains and bloating that never goes down, bloating that can only be described as like constant pregnant stomach. I even ended up having UTIs for over 3 weeks without being able to treat them. The bloating has ruined my self esteem and I live in fear of getting yet another UTI. After finding breakthrough reviews across the internet I started to wean myself of these tablets 4 months ago, eventually shopping taking them 2 months ago (end March). I am still experiencing all symptoms currently and am worried this is irreversible. Please can anyone tell me how long it took for their side effects to ease, I am so worried I will never get back To normal.

Profile

Omeprazole is used to treat certain stomach and esophagus problems (such as acid reflux, ulcers). It works by decreasing the amount of acid your stomach makes. It relieves symptoms such as heartburn, difficulty swallowing, and persistent cough. This medication helps heal acid damage to the stomach and esophagus, helps prevent ulcers, and may help prevent cancer of the esophagus. Omeprazole belongs to a class of drugs known as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs).
