My GP prescribed Omeprazole for heartburn that I’d been experiencing for a number of weeks. 

Now 2 weeks on, my heartburn has gone, but I’m experiencing awful bloating and wind that is making me feel really unwell. The symptoms are worse in the evenings.

Looking at side effects, wind is listed. Wonder if I should cease the Omeprazole?

    Hi happyho

    Stop the Omerprazole and see if the bloating and wind goes away ... if the heartburn comes back try an over the counter remedy such as gavisgon or wishes....

    Thanks for the advice. I’m not going to take anymore. My stomach and intestines feel ike they’re lined with lead this morning and that the digestive process isn’t happening, just like digested food is stuck and not moving through. Also very bunged up. Must be those tablets. Thanks again.
