Diarrhea caused by spinach

Hi, last night I had spinach and now I have diarrhea. Will allergex pills help stop the diarrhea? ## No, Allergex is used to treat or prevent allergy symptoms, the typical side effects according to the NIH may include nausea, headache, and dry mouth. This medication will not do anything to help stop diarrhea. Are you on any other medications? How much spinach did you eat? What other foods did you ingest?

I've read that long term use of PPIs can lead to bone loss and i already have osteopenia so i asked the doctor to maybe lower my dose since i contnue to have acid reflux. I've been on the 30 mg for 3 days now and i'm having a lot of acid reflux. I would like to go back to the 60 mg and asked the doctor but it was late friday afternoon and no one answered my call.
