Hi Anyone out there with IBS and LPR who has taken omeprazole and has come off this drug. If so what were your rebound symptoms? Were they different or worse because of the IBS. If omeprazole it taken for Gerd and heartburn is the main problem then I know that rebound symptom is worse heartburn often lasting a few weeks. I have never really had heartburn which is typical of LPR (not diagnosed going by throat symptoms). I now have rebound symptoms from omeprazole after 7/8 weeks use. They are bloated acidy stomach,burping,indigestion feels like you want to burp and sometimes feeling sick but no heartburn as before. I am taking gavscon advance and for the last 24 hours have gone back on ranitidine although not pleased about this. I have ordered some DGL licorice as I have heard it is good. Apart from this I take meberverine for the IBS and other medication for various health problems. I am 67. Just wondered what are the range of rebound symptoms and how long did they last etc. Bad enough having IBS with out extra problems. I should add that I suffer from anxiety especially health anxiety so that does not help matters.
