I started off taking 20mg of omeprazole In 2009 when I was 18 and took it basically everyday until 2012 when I was then switched to 30mg of lansoprazole. I have took lansoprazole basically everyday from 2012 to now. I am now 26 so have been taking a ppi basically everyday for the last 8 years. I suffer from anxiety and feel confused get concentration problems and blurry vision a lot and I am noticing I feel a lot better in the mornings before I take the lansoprazole. Recently I have realised that I seem to start getting these blurry vision concentration problems anxety about 30 mintues to an hour after I have took the lansoprazole? I am starting to think it is the lansoprazole that is giving me blurry vision, confusion, concentration problems and anxiety? I have tried to stop taking the lansoprazole recently and the heartburn was so severe I only lasted 3 days before I had to take the lansoprazole again. I tried anitacids when I tried to stop taking the lansoprazole and it only gave me very short mild relief. So I am just wondering coud the lansoprazole be causing these symptoms I describe? Are they bad news? Also does anyone know anyway I can wean off the lansoprazole without suffering such severe heartburn? Thanks
