    I have been on this since October. I had no problems in the beginning. Now I am experiencing severe stomach cramps and can barely eat without wanting to barf. I was scoped and just inflammation. I was taking Carafate and that wasn't helping the cramps either.

    This medication may have helped Gerd and Ulcer but at the expense of my total health and life. Extreme anemia, shooting stomach and chest pains could not get out of bed. REPORTed to FDA and received no response. Please report your side effects.

    This medication seemed to do no better than omeprazole 20 mg. It also made me itch all over especially my eye lids.
