On GP's advice I reduced omeprazole from 20 twice daily to one capsule at night. I get very few symptoms during the day. I don't eat or drink for 3 hours before going to bed.
I take the omeprazole last thing at night with water and then take Gaviscon advance.
I have a Puttnams acid reflux wedge but even so I only get a maximum of four hours sleep before waking with the griping sensation. I take another swig of Gaviscon advance but am not really able to get much sleep for the rest of the night. Consequently am like a zombie during the day.
I am wondering if I might do better to take the omeprazole with my evening meal. Am also wondering if I should take ranitidine at night as well. Don't like taking tablets but sleep deprivation is doing me in! Any tips/advice would be greatly welcomed.
