Prilosec (Omeprazol) abdominal problems

Does anybody know a way to solve the side effects of  lower abdominal pain when using Prilosec or any other protonpomp inhibitors.
Prilosec works fine, but this side effect is so worse that I must stop using it.
It is no use to "go back" to Histamin inhibitors like Zantac etc.
In fact I am looking for someone who has found by experimenting another medicine that could releave the abdominal pain without having other serious side effects

You can check out "Some GASTRIC REFLUX TIPS we use" that I posted on 12/7/01, on the GERD Online forum. Run the tips by your doc, and if your doc and you have no objections, try them, and let us know if they help, or not!

They are holistic treatments (no bad side effects!), and my sources for them are listed on the message there.

Here's a link:


I wish you all the best, and I hope others share their thoughts with you too!
