Diagnosed with acid reflux a few years ago and prescribed omeprazole. After a couple of weeks it cleared it up with no side effects. The acid reflux returned some weeks ago and a further course of the drug eased the symptoms but didnt eradicate it permanently. Continued with 'Nexium Control' (esomeprazole) which also hasnt been 100% effective. Further consultation with GP necessary.

I never read side effects to begin with, finding that one can imagine some when suggested! I found no relief whatsoever from taking omeprazole and quite a lot of the side effects, I don't have the leaflet any more so cannot be more specific I'm afraid. I do remember that they were bad enough and worrying enough for me to cease taking it.

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).
