So I've been put on Omerprazole 40mg for seven days to treat for heartburn and possible GERD. When the heartburn didnt go away, I saw a specialist and am having an endoscopy and ultrasound next week. I was told to continue taking the Omerprazole.
Since falling I'll with the heartburn I haven't had a normal bowel movement. Everything has been softer, and after 6 days of Omerprazole I had a bout of diarrhea. I then missed a day of the medication, felt better, and then continued taking it as directed. Now, 6 or 7 days later, I'm suffering from another bout of diarrhea.
Is this a normal symtpom for those of you who have suffered from GERD? Have any of you had diarrhea as a result of taking Omerprazole? I'm trying to figure out if this is a side effect or a new symptom of some underlying condition which is causing the reflux.
