    Comment:
    Prescribed for occasional bouts of reflux, heartburn, and a burning pain in my upper right abdomen that kept recurring after my gall bladder was removed and that none of the doctors I saw could explain. 20 mg. per day of omeprazole treated the reflux somewhat effectively (I still had some if I overate or drank red wine). My dosage was doubled from 20 mg. to 40 mg. daily recently to try to address ... Show Full Comment

    It last for 8-12 hrs, then symptoms return requiring 2 per day. I have experienced dizziness and increase in appetite, therefore weight gain, therefore more acid reflux. Prevacid works better, but still 2/day. UHC took me off it to play doctor and save THEM money.

    I was diagnosed with a hernia and GERD on 12/2/08. I have been taking this drug ever since. I'm more bloated and have gained a little weight. I have a lot of stomach gurgling. I fall asleep ok but wake up in the middle of the night totally wired. I'm trying to get off the drug. I've given up alcohol, coffee, chocolate, orange juice, tomato-based foods, etc... I do not want to be on th ... Show Full Comment
