ACID REBOUND and Rebamipide Mucosta

after stopping meds omeprazole 20mg twice a day which i took for 45 days, i suffered from acid rebound, severe burning sensation in stomach i never felt before after i was told by a gastroent to stop taking meds. he put me on mucosta 3x a day for 7 days and asked me to come back if symptoms still there. is mucosta safe to take 2wks and wont cause any complications? ## Why were you taking the Omeprazole? If it was to treat a specific condition, such as an ulcer or GERD, then 45 days is a really short time to be on it, most of these medications are used for at least 3 to 4 months. Did he say why he wanted you to stop taking it? Acid rebound is always possible, when you stop using these types of medications abruptly. The Rebamipide is an amino acid derivative, that is used to mucosal prote...

Omee drug information

I am 57 and my doc has put me on omee for ulcers. Can u tell me if omee also helps with pain? My doc gave me a one week dose for ulcers. I notice it also helps me with pain around my ankles. I am on artherxin for pain. What do I continue with? ## No, it doesn't do anything to help with pain. It contains the active ingredient Omeprazole, which is a proton pump inhibitor that's used to help reduce the amount of acid produced by your stomach. Learn more Omee details here. How long have you been taking the Arthrexin? Learn more Arthrexin details here. It contains a very potent nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and it could just be that it's working better for you, the longer you're on it and it reaches more effective levels in your body.

Omeprazole Cr

Does this medicine cause you to have a strong odor in your urine? ## No, I don't see it listed anywhere as a possible side effect, even among the rare ones. Learn more Omeprazole details here. Is it the only medication you take? Have you been dehydrated at all? ## My urine smells strongly of petrol. I have stopped taking Losec and smell has diminished. ## The smell in my urine is definitely from omoprozole Has there been a change in manufacture. ## I have also noticed an odd urine smell on omeprazole. I do take other otc antacids but I suspect the omeprazole. ## +1 I started Omeprazole, and urine odor followed. I stop, it goes away. I don't understand why this side effect seems under-reported, when it seems easy to spot the correlation/control of the symptom. More worrisome, is...

Problem with Kremers Urban KU 136

I have taken Omeprazole for years from various manufacturers and never had a problem. My pharmacy just switched to Kremers Urban KU 136 this week, and they don't do anything. When I am not on medication for GERD, I wake up every night gagging on vomit. In the past when I am taking Omeprazole daily, I wake up maybe one night a month usually because I ate something too close to bed time. I use a pillow wedge to sleep upright and am fine. When I took the Kremers Urban KU 136, I was up every night gagging on vomit and the pillow wedge didn't help. I bought Nexium over the counter and am now back to not having any issues. I told my pharmacy, but they didn't seem to care. Wondering if anyone else is experiencing this with Kremers Urban KU 136? ## I called my pharmacy with the same...

ic omeprazole dr

can omeprazole cause elevated levels on liver functioning tests(blood) ## I was prescribed omeprazole 40 mg for a bad sinus infection. Does this seem right? ## Yes, the FDA does list elevated liver enzymes as being a possible side effect, but it is very rare, usually occurring in less than 1% of the people that take it. How high were your enzyme levels? Depending on how high they were, it may not be due to the Omeprazole. Is that the only medication you are currently taking? Has your doctor done any other testing? Bob, no, this is a proton pump inhibitor that is used to help reduce the amount of acid produced by the stomach to help prevent, or treat conditions, such as heartburn, GERD, gastritis, and ulcers. Are you sure that's what was prescribed?

Omeprazole Dr 40mg Side Effects

I have only taken this pill twice and I am shaky, nauseous and loss of appetite. I am hoping it is because i am taking this pill. Please advise. ## Have you consulted a doctor? The loss of appetite and nausea can be side effects to this medication, but the shakiness is not normal. Thus, it is very important to consult a doctor to get to the root of the problem and discover whether or not it is the medication. ## i am experiencing a severe, hacking, cough that is coincident after taking Omeprozole DR for five days. I have now had this cough for another five days. There is no cough medicine or syrup that will stop it. I also have hoarsness. Could these be side effects of this medication?

purple & gray pill

I have been talking omeprazole 20mg purple and gray pill for the past 4 days. I been having stomach & lower back pain. I stopped taking it yesterday how long does the back and stomach pain last for? ## Hello, Jim! How are you? I'm sorry that you're in pain. Omeprazole can sometimes cause those types of side effects, in some people that take it, as listed by the FDA, along with dizziness, headache and flatulence. However, if you have an acidity problem, then there is a chance that the pain could also be caused by it, rather than the medication. Thus, it would be best to have it checked out by your doctor to be sure. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I just starred taking the blue and grsy pill and have severere gas psin. The pink red brown pill didn't. Why the pa...
