Strange Smell

Posted , 1 user is following.

I have found this drug amazing in stopping my heartburn etc but I constantly (or almost) smell a rather unpleasant wheat type smell which I fell comes from my pores. My family assure me they cannot smell it but I certainly can. Does anyone else experience this?

    I agree with the smell being like insides are rotten. I only took the drug for a week and I was unlucky enough to get every side effect. (I have never had a bad side effect to anything befor in my life) I could not stop burping and that was the final straw as people around me could smell it them and agreed I smelt like I ws rotting. In the end I had to just stop taking them and then persevered with Zantac - doesn't always work!

    You both are very lucky others can;t smell it like they could with me sad

    I spent 2-3 months on Omeprazole last year and after 2 weeks of taking it every time i turned my head to the right i got this rotten / gone off smell from my shoulder/armipit area...

    I washed my armpits raw (dettol soap didn't work just kind of blended with the smell - not nice!), couldn't understand what was going on....

    Now i've read this and am guessing that it was a side effect of the tablets...

    I'm back on them again, 3 weeks so far but no smell yet (just tinitus in the left ear and cramps in my legs this time round!)

    Reading this i'd guess the smell is a definate side effect.
