I am 66 years old tomorrow. Because of these blood thinners I had stomach bleeding and have to take Pantoprozole. But Pantoprozole (and Omeprozole prior to that) causes severe stomach cramps; so, I stopped taking it a few days ago. Now I find that the bleeding from the gut has started again. I am seeing the doctor on Monday; till that time I would like to know what I should do. Is this vicious cycle ever going to end?
