I am about 30 years old qnd I have been taking 20mg Omeprazole every morning for over 3 years for my acid reflux problem and I was very happy with the result. I sometimes used to take 10mg and it was sufficient. Since last week the Omeprazole suddenly stopped working so i bought Rantidine from Boots with no help as well. I have acid reflux and my stomach is very bloated. I attended hospital last night and the doctor gave me 30mg Lanzoprazole which I tried the first one this morning but it didn’t work as well. The doctor at the hospital said i need an Endoscopy to find out what is going on so i need to see my GP for it.
I had an endoscopy done just under 2 years ago, the result was clear but the doctor said I have loose stomach valve so I either have to do a surgery to put a ring around it or I should continue using Omeprazole which I chose the latter at the time.
I am going to see my GP tomorrow to arrange another Endoscopy and to see a specialist but do you know what suddenly happened and why PPIs suddenly stopped working? Thanks
