Hey all 😃
So I have been on 40mg of Omeprazole daily (taken in the morning) for months. In addition to this, I have been been attempting to increase my fiber intake due to hard/large stools causing hemmerhoids/fissures during bowel movements. Every fiber supplement I look at suggests not taking ANY medication within 2 hours of the supplement. But does this apply to meals as well?
For example, I was told to start eating a high fiber cereal for breakfast, such as FiberOne. 1.5-2 cups of this cereal can net me nearly 20g of dietary fiber. But should I eat this 30 minutes after taking my dose of Omeprazole??? Will I block the medication's absorption and effectiveness?
Thanks for the advice all!
