hi all. I have been on Omeprazole for at least five years, my stomach is hard and bloated, I have ibs with he constipation being worse. I have a lot of gas gurgling around in my stomach that I find hard to get out either end. I look at least 6 weeks pregnant! I work in a pharmacy in the natural health department and I'm huge on fixing the problem not masking it with drugs. So after taking to a few people in the know that physically cringe when I mention Omeprazole I'm doing a heal my gut regime. Apparently people focus on probiotics and not prebiotics that feed the good bacteria and help them to multiply, as well as the need to take digestive enzymes. Also needed is aloe Vera juice and slippery elm to sooth the gastrointestinal tract. So I'm in! I stopped the Omeprazole about a week ago, taking apple cider vinegar before breakfast to help with heartburn. So far no heartburn but at 3.47am I was woken up with pain. My body was aching like I had been to the gym and worked out for 6 hours. And I have felt like crap all day. I really think Omeprazole causes more harm than good. I reckon. I'm sure half of my pain issues will gradually improve . I certainly feel more lucid!
has anyone else come off Omeprazole and had the pain issue?
i heard it can stop you absorbing vitamins and minerals
