Omeprazole side effects

Hi i am on 40mg of Omeprazole for acid reflux. Has anyone here had side effects from it like loose stools?

For the past two weeks or so my bowel movements have been rather odd...loose in the morning but ok towards the end of the day...no blood, but causing soreness around my anus afterwards....when i was taking 2 20mg i was fine, but the 1 40mg seems to be giving me these side effects, as well as not working so well for the reflux (tho i am thinking i have post nasal drip)

i have made an appointment as i need more tablets so i will consult my doctor but in the mean time i was just curious to know if anyone else shared these symptoms.

Is Prilosec another gastro-resistant medication???

I know my capsules can give side-effects of bloating and excess gas so perhaps its the same with yours too.

you could get the soreness around the anus from loose stool if allot like (diarrhea ) and with hard stools, where you would need more water. hope it gets better, I just started omeprazole x1 week and good stools and no indigestion.

Hi thanks for your comments. My symptoms have settled now but I now find that omeprazole isn't as effective now cause sometimes I still get indigestion, but it's better than not having them lol
