Now that my GP has their own pharmacist I had a conversation with one the other day. She was concerned I wasn’t taking omeprazole and I explained my reasoning behind it. When first diagnosed six years ago I started it along with alendronic acid totally oblivious as to why. After a few months and realising I was on a long journey (never thought it was going to be this long 😨) I did some research, found this forum and decided I didn’t need these extra drugs. I take my prednisolone with food/yoghurt.
The pharmacist thought I should now reconsider. I don’t have any stomach issues and feel all is well. She warned me that I might not know if I had ulcers until they were there.
Am I being daft and should I now start taking it? Still on 7.5mg and started sulfasalazine at the end of January.
Anybody’s thoughts would be appreciated.
