Hi sorry I dont know what PPI is ? I have been on meds to prevent tummy problems and Naproxan. I was fine-LAZOPROZLE gave me the runs; GP gave it to me for gastric reflux.

I dont get constipated and always have loos to soft stools.

You are best to see your GP again and ask

Best Wishes


PPIs are generally prescribed for Acid Reflux (as well as being prescribed to protect the stomach when taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) like Neproxin). One of the symptoms of acid reflux is nausea so it could be that is the reason that you are now feeling much better since taking the PPIs. I took Ameprozole (a similar drug) a while ago for acid reflux and it also caused me constipation. I would check with your doctor about the enzymes if you are not sure.
