Omeprazole :: Side Effects - Dizziness And Nausea

Feb 8, 2010

My husband has been taking omeprazole for the last few months. He has complained about dizziness and nausea and a heavy feeling in his chest for about 6 weeks. Last week he became very anxious about a 2 hour drive. He is usually a very confident person. Then last night he broke down when I said that he was slurring his words and becoming very forgetful.We read the side effects of the drug and he has stopped taking them. It may be psychological but he says he feels better already.

Pregnancy :: Side Effects Of Omeprazole?

I'm on my 12th week. I've been diagnosed before with GERD. Now due to the pregnancy, it seemed to worsen as I experience painful heartburns. My doctor recommends I take omeprazole along with antacids. I've been taking antacids because I know they don't bare side effects on pregnancy. I am not sure though with omeprazole. I'm scared. I am afraid it might harm the baby. Anyone here experienced the same?

Omeprazole :: Warning - Serious Side Effects, Stop Taking It

For those of you who are just starting to take omeprazole, please stop and find other alternatives!!! I have endured so much agony from this medication since I first started taking it last year. You might feel better initially but if you take it for longer than 2 weeks, you will find it extremely difficult, if not impossible to get off of it because the rebound acid is a killer.

On top of that, I've experienced some horrible side effects (which I've never had before):

- exercise-induced tachycardia: extremely fast and uncontrollable heartbeat (over 200 bpm).

- heart palpitations and irregular heartbeat

- anxiety

- chest pains

- extreme fatigue

- depression

I am a healthy, physically active 34 yr old female and was prescribed omeprazole for a mild stomach irritation or suspected ulcer. I stayed on it for several months with few symptoms at the time. However, going off of it was another story. Because these pills stop your stomach from producing acid, it burns and hurts enormously when you try to go off of it. As well, after I managed to wean myself off (I had to go through a juice fast in order to do it), I started developing digestive issues I'd never had before like heartburn and reflux. I believe it is these pills which have caused it as I'd never had heartburn until taking it.

And now, having been on it a 2nd time, I've developed the list of symptoms above which have caused me endless grief!

I've read other stories of people having the same symptoms as well as a host of other problems like osteoporosis because it drains your body of calcium.

More people need to know about the dangers of this medication. I read about people staying on this for years and developing even more conditions!

Anxiety :: Stopping 20g Seroxat - Side Effects, I Had A Nausea, Lack Of Appetite

The story started when I noticed a tremor in my hand fingers (both hinds) as it starts from my wrist bone. I went to a nervous specialist and then he offered me the seroxat knowing that I didn't had any kind of anxiety at that time, where I had before this visit by half year. This visit began 6 months ago. I have started, as per his instructions, to get table and a half per day for the first 6 days then 1 tablet till 3 months. Suddenly, I stooped to use it and I know that was my bad. I returned to the dr, he said that we will start over. then, I started to feel that this medicine is not resulting well anymore. I started to stop it as per his instruction by taking half a tab for 5 days then half a tab every day after day. The last dose was on last Thursday. Now, we have passed 2 full days (Friday and Saturday). Today, I am feeling very and very bad. I had all of its side effects, I had a nausea, lack of appetite and DIZZINESS.. What do you suggest?

He said that I have to return to half a tab day after day and visit him on Wednesday. I am not planning to go to that dr any more thus I am here. I have read some forums of dropping it in the right way. Do you suggest taking a quarter tab day after day again? or to deal with the above side effects and finish up the day, tomorrow or what?

Birth Control :: Depo-provera Side Effects - Nausea, Headaches, Cramping

I was on the Birth control shot for 9 months. I was supposed to go in between Aug 11th-Aug 17th. I Decided not to go because I had every side effect possible. After I got off of it I have been bleeding. It's not the same everyday some days it spotting but most are like a light period. I also get bad cramping on some days. I have experienced nausea, headaches, cramping. It is now September 24th. I have been having these problems for over a month now. Anyone have the same problem? And if so is there any way of knowing when this will go away? Or anything to make it at least more comfy to get by it all?

Dizziness And Nausea After Sex / Orgasm?

So for the past couple of days, I've been experiencing awful dizziness after masturbating. My knees kept buckling when I went to leave my room. This has rarely happened. But yesterday was worse, as I had had very high blood sugar levels from what I was eating. After climax, I felt sick, so I sat down for a minute, then ended up vomiting a small amount (probably whatever I had eaten last) onto the blanket I was using. Not only that, but I keep getting painful screeching in my ear (I run a lot of electronics in my room, could that be part of it?) afterward, and recent bad cramping while I'm in the middle of doing it. The orgasms haven't even been stronger than usual, either. And I know some of these might be self-explanatory, but I'd at least like to know how to treat them properly. And....juuuuust in case anyone asks, I have no chance of being pregnant; I'm 13 and a virgin. Just so you know.

Anxiety :: Dizziness, Palpitations And Nausea

I have been having horrible anxiety attacks recently. I feel like there is something new wrong with me every day.

I have been feeling so sick after I eat then I panic that I am going to be unwell. I have been feeling very sick recently.

I have been getting a pain in my right leg and convinced I have a blood clot as I got the pain before. Probably just twisted my knee or something but my mind goes crazy.

I have been getting palpitations which make me short of breath then dizzy. Sometimes I sweat but I think that comes from the panic of having a heart attack. After a day of feeling these symptoms, I then end up with a headache or tension in my neck, back or shoulders and I'm convinced it's all related and I am seriously ill. It's a vicious circle. Anxiety causes me to be a hypochondriac.

I'm hoping others get these symptoms and have turned out to be ok? It's all anxiety related?

Hip Replacement :: Exhaustion, Dizziness And Nausea On A Busy Day

I'm 9 weeks post TRHR and although I'm back driving, doing most regular activities I'm getting wiped out in the evenings.

It's not just fatigue. It's like I'm going to pass out and I feel very nauseous.

I was just wondering if this was normal or if maybe I am anaemic. I was anaemic after surgery but I was in a supplement and I had recovered.

Basically I'm wondering if it's due to me overdoing things prof maybe I should get my bloods checked.

Alternative Therapies :: Constant Headache / Dizziness And Nausea

I am mildly overweight, have low end of normal blood pressure.  I exercise approximately 5 days a week and walk about 1.5-3 miles a day during work hours --otherwise I have a desk job. I eat primarily whole grains and foods, whole goats milk, and only drink 1-2 times a week and typically not heavily.

I've had a constant headache since September 20, 2015. It started in the middle of the night and increased in severity throughout that month. The pain is at the front of my head varies from a 2-9 typically getting worse throughout the day and into the evening.  Other symptoms include dizziness and nausea, lightheadedness-- sometimes extreme and debilitating.

After 1 month, I went to the doctor who had a MRI done, several blood tests, a nerve block, a hospital DHE treatment, every painkiller and triptan/migraine drug in the book. I went on a course of Phenergan and diclofenac, and also had IV antibiotic in the hospital. I started taking magnesium supplements. I assessed the stressful elements of my life (at home and at work), began meditating, and lowered my overall stress. I did yoga and stretched did neck exercises which both reduced some of the pain. Nothing worked, and they recommended Topamax, but as nothing made a dent before, I decided to question their diagnosis of intractable migraine.

Since then, I had my Nexplanon implant removed (received it July 11th, 2015, removed it November 22, 2015). And started acupuncture. The acupuncture achieved some considerable relief, but after a month of treatment twice a week, I went on a business trip and took charcoal several times during the trip to work with a hangover (I don't drink much). During the end of the trip and the 5 days following it, I didn't have a headache. At the time, I concluded that the acupuncture had worked.

After the headache returned, I started to go through possibilities and took myself off of gluten. After a week, no change in headache. Then I started taking charcoal again after a eureka moment and then went 2 weeks without a headache. Yesterday I forgot to take my charcoal for 28 hours and my headache returned. I'm back on the stuff, and now feel like I'm narrowing in on finding the culprit!

Random Spells Of Sudden Headache With Dizziness And Nausea?

Little background info, I'm 18 and female and I never usually get headaches, but yesterday morning I woke up with a slight one, the type you usually get when you oversleep. Throughout the day it got a lot worse, to the point where my eyes were watering due to the pain, I could barely stand and barely move and of course had no paracetamol in the house so I had to endure the horrendous pain before my mum was able to get some when she got back from work. It's now day two and the headache is just as bad, the nausea and dizziness comes and goes in random spells but the headache is persistent. Pain relief dulls but doesn't get rid of the pain. 

I haven't had any injury or knock to the head, no ear infection (to cause the dizziness) and the only things that really changed is my sleeping pattern (I usually sleep for around 5/6 hours a day due to insomnia but yesterday I got a full 10 hours sleep only waking up around 3 times during the night which is normal for me).

GERD (acid Reflux) :: Nausea And Dizziness With Nexium?

I have just read all the posts about the acid rebound from Nexium. Does anyone else suffer with nausea and dizziness with nexium? I want to get off it but I am very apprehensive as it has been a security blanket for me for years. I feel so sick right now that anything would be an improvement. I am going to leave off it slowly but I think it is making me sick. I am having the exact same symptoms that I went onto Nexium to relieve. I am going to try the dgl and I will get some hci tablets. Does anyone know if they work as well as the apple cider vinegar. How about digestive enzymes. Does anyone know about those and when to take them with the dgl and hcl
