In reading a lot of these posts, I am curious about HOW you all take PPI's. I have been on them, for most of the time, Omeprazole, since the 90's. I started out after Pepsid AC stopped working for me, and I began with 40 mg. a day, finally went down to 20, and have been for some time on 10 mg a day. I know a lot of people take it first thing, on an empty stomach, and I do not. I get up, have my breakfast first, and wait at least 2 hours after taking my supplements to take my pill. I have never had a doctor say my vitamin levels were low, and I have some joint pain, but I have scoliosis, so most of what hurts is from that. I take several supplements, magnesium, vitamin D, coQ10, ginko biloba, and off and on, Triphala, for my bowels, although lately, not taking that. I would like to stop altogether, but fear the withdrawal, and am afraid I will get worse problems in the long run. I have to watch what I do eat, avoid some things, and if I do eat them, I often take a dose of rantinidine before bed. So, I am interested to hear how you take your pill, as I have never had these very awful symptoms I keep reading about.
