    Vision and mental problems are documented side effects of Omeprazole. See this link http://www.drugs.com/sfx/omeprazole-side-effects.html. Doctors prescribe this drug like sweeties and though I accept that it can be necessary it often isn't. If you have an ulcer or need to protect your stomach from nsaids then, yes. If it's for hiatus hernia and general acid reflux, there are other ways to tackle that, through change of diet. Can I ask why you are taking it and what dose?

    Hi james7564

    mmmm all i can say my mother was given these and stopped her much needed other medication drom working properly, she was deteriating before my eyes, i looke up the mixture of the omeprazole and her other meds and it said will interfere with her other lne working, i took her down her dsoctors and she looked it up on screen and said oh yes so it does, needless to say she was told to stop them emmediatley  to which replied i already have. Took her a good fortnight to begin to feel normal again. As for you questkion about your eyesight well

    Hello James, Im sorry you had a terrible side effects from these pills. I too have lost my eyebrows & eyelashes ,which is awful being a woman, also had the brain fog/blurred eyes & wonkey vision as if I were on a boat. .Also severe anxiety,& dizziness.I have been on these pills for 15 years and have now changed to Lansoprazole . It has taken 3 months for the Omeprazole  to get out of my system, but the anxiety is still there & I am receiving cognitive therapy to help.I have spent £600 on tests(private)eg MRI scan  as at first I didnt know what was causing my problems , I have had these problemns for over 3 years.The tablets should be banned.

      That is terrible, I to have had an mri on brain and blood test which came back normal. Has your vision improved? Was the brain fog you had intense? I only took 2 capsules yet it feels like ive taken lethal drugs
