Has anyone has any problems with Omeprazole made by Teva? I have a hiatus hernia and GERD. My GP prescribed 20mg Omeprazole per day and the first time I had the script made up the brand was Almus. I took this for a month and it seemed to work fine. I happened to be somewhere else when I had the repeat prescription made up and was sold the Teva brand. Within two days I could feel the symptoms returning and by day five was in a lot of discomfort - the burning pain in my stomach had returned. I went to the first pharmacist who compared the notes from both brands and he said that a lot of the other ingredients, the bulking agents, capsule cover etc were different and maybe something in the Teva was causing a reaction. So the GP wrote another prescription and I got more of the Almus brand. I should add that I did return to the phamacist who sold me the Teva but they didn't want to know, utterly failed to see that there might be a problem. In my naivety, I had always assumed that all generics were the same but it seems not.
