Omeprazole & cold hands

Anyone taking Omeprazole?  If so...what is your daily dose?

Also...would anyone know why my hands get cold after I eat something with sugar?

I think 20mg is the standard dose, to be taken between 1/2 hour and one hour of your major meal of the day.  Because of an extreme problem with acid reflux I took as much as 80mg daily for a short amount of time before surgery, but I took 20mg daily for perhaps twenty years with no known side affects.

I think if I were you, I'd check with your doctor about the symtom of cold hands after eating sugar, and do so at once, it sounds like a diabetic issue.  That is a classic symptom of the inability of the body to handle glucose.  Glucose issues are very serious, it involves every organ in your body.  Keep us informed.

I forget to add that it sounds like hypoglycemia.  I'd request a test for that condition.
