Hi, you lot! I was prescribed Omeprazole in December after a gastroscopy and continued it during a hospital stay (AKI, ascites, liver stuff). Received no diagnosis in the two weeks and was discharged in to the care of my GP. He diagnosed a chest infection and pretty severe anaemia. So that was the hospital well and truly washing their hands of me. I didn’t like the side-effects but was fine with the spironolactone. So I had a few changes and nothing agreed with me. So the decision was made that I could stop taking Omeprazole.
When I was re-admitted, in November, with the massive bleed, I was put back on Omeprazole which I was not happy about. I get backache, diarrhoea, faintness and dizziness. I just feel rough. I know people are all different but did any of you have similar side-effects and do you find anything better? I understand why I need something to stop the bleed recurring but I really don’t like these.
Thank you, in advance.
