In all my decades as an adult, I have very, very rarely had stomach problems, almost never. About 8 years ago, after an endoscopy, I was told I had a hiatus hernia and a weak sphincter where my esophagus empties. I have taken omeprazole ever since based on the doctor's recommendayion.
After reading of several potential problems from years of use, I asked the doctor and was told that I could use Pepcid if I were concerned about omeprazole. On days where I have skipped taking omeprazole, NEVER a problem. I wonder about taking it every other day. Or, if I switch to Pepcid (famotidine), take that everry other day. Or, since I'm in my 70s, and don't have indigestion, skip taking any drugs -- unless I have some problems.
