How are you? I'm sorry about the problem you've been having. You should have this checked out, because that could be a symptom of acid reflux, it might not be due to the medication. The FDA lists Omeprazole as being a PPI, which is most commonly used to treat or prevent GERD, ulcers, heartburn and gastritis. Typical side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, flatulence and stomach pain. Are you also watching what you eat and drink to help the medication work better? Such as avoiding spicy foods, alcohol and caffeine?

If it safe to take OMEPRAZOLE that expired Oct. 2014. . . now it's Jan. 2015? ## Hello, Shirley! How are you? It doesn't get dangerous, once it's expired, but it does start to lose effectiveness, so it may not work as well as it did, when it was new. Overall, if would really be best to dispose of it and pick up a new supply, unless your doctor okays your taking it. The FDA classifies this medication as a PPI, it is used to reduce the amount of acid produced by the stomach. Typical side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, stomach pain and flatulence. Is there anything else I can help with?

HELP finding maalox

I can not find maalox anywhere in Hastings, MN. My husband WILL NOT use anything else for his heartburn.

Learn more Maalox details here. Unfortunately, there is no solution at this time, your husband really needs to take measures to avoid getting heartburn, or develop a willingness to use something else. I understand being loyal to a product that works, but it really isn't always practical. Has he ever discussed the heartburn with his doctor? ## I had esophageal spasms and was told by my doctor - and a famous hospital - to use Maalox. It has worked for years. I was t...
