    Hi Fung .... I still take omeprazole ... had my op last month and since then my doctor has prescribed more .... so I'm sure its ok, but if you're worried check it out with your own GP.

    Hi Fung, I was prescribed them a few weeks after surgery to try and prevent any stomach problems from taking pain killers. I an now prescribed Ranitidine.  Good luck but I would agree with the others check with your GP.

    Hi fung. I have just checked this out with my GP this morning.

    Had gallbladder removed 2 weeks ago.

    I have already reduced Buscopan and am continuing to do so.

    GP said not to reduce Omeprazole at the moment as I was reducing Buscopan, so she prescribed me for another month.

    Once i am completely off Buscopan and am feeling OK, I can then start start reducing Omeprazole until I am off them as well.

    Hope this helps.

    Sarah
