I have been taking 20 mg of Omeprazole since May 2016. I have always suffered from acid indigestion, and have a very senstivie digestive system. I am not happy taking drugs, and wish to stop taking this drug. I have used Rennies in the past and did find then effective.
?I had a hip replacement at the end of May, and this coincided with the start of the Omeprazole. I have noticed that I am quite lethargic and somewhat depressed. I do not have any energy and tire easily, now. I used to love to walk and play piano. My feeling is that this is due to the drug and not the hip replacement, from which recovery was swift. Walking around the house and garden without sticks after just 14 days post op.
?I have asked for a doouble prescription of 10 mg Omeprazole, and started to take just one 10 mg tablet per day. I am wondering if that is too much of a drop, too soon? I have, on occasions not taken any Ompeprazole for a day to a day and half, but that is about as long as I am able to tolerate before the acid starts to bother me.
?I have been following a discussion on this and my side effects are not as severe as some, but still, I would prefer to use alternative means of controlling the condition. I am considering following some of the suggestions such as aloe vera, lemon juice, DGL, sodium bicarbonate, etc.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
