Why am I having Severe Diarrhea days after taking Omeprazole 20mg?

I was experiencing burning symptoms for two weeks. Last Monday went to the ER and they prescribe me with Omeprazole 20 mg. on Wednesday went to specialist and he told to also take IBgard. I started to have severe diarrhea on Wednesday afternoon. There are messages in all over every single paper that I have that I should call my doctor if I have severe diarrhea while taking Omeprazole. One of the nurses called me back and she told me to stop taking the IBGard and I did. I'm still having severe and watery diarrhea. Today Is Saturday Morning and I have gone to the bathroom twice. I'm worried. All of the papers say that this might lead to something bad. I have been watching what I eat so I don't trigger the symptoms but sometimes it doesn't matter what I eat I still feel the burning. I would appreciate an opinion on this. Is the weekend and I feel like I should be doing something about it. Thank you all.

  Hi and welcome to the GERD forum.

Anytime you experience a side effect from a med you should stop taking it and call the Dr.....not sure why you were not told to stop both meds.....I would call the Dr office back and let them know you continue with the same issues with stopping the one med.....
