Drowsiness and Prilosec
Husband noticed I was having psychotic episodes on omeprazole. Doctor denied this as a side effect until he got on his computer to prove me wrong. He apologized when he found out he was wrong. I was removed from it and now just drink pickle juice when needed.
JessicaS.  |  August 1, 2014
my husband has been prescribed this medication, but the pills are on 20 mg @, and dosage varies from 1 every other day to 1 per day, depending on the severity of GERD.
suzych  |  December 22, 2013
