omeprazole side effects and dosage

I am getting some nasty side effects with omeprazole: dizziness, tiredness, confusion, nausea.
I've already dropped from 40mg a day to 20mg but although diminished the side effects are still there.
Does this indicate the drug is harming me and I should cease taking it? If so what can I try taking instead?
Could I try dropping to 10mg or would that not suppress acid production sufficiently?
Thank you so much for your help.

Talk to your doctor about what's going on. Not all PPIs have the same side-effects on each person - they're not all alike. You may have to try one or more to find one that will work effectively for you and have the fewest side-effects.
