I took it 2 times only of 20mg and it was for stomach discomfort from use of nsaids

I still have mental change symptoms and my vision is not as good as before suffering with double vision also eyes do not focus well like before

My breathing feels heavy still and my sinus feels strange

I took the omeprazole tablets on may 20th so its been a while i did have many other symtoms which have gone but some still occur

I also had bad brain fog

I also take risperidone 4mg and zopiclone 7.5mg and mirtazipine 30mg

Dear customer,

Why do you think that your present symptoms are due to the side effects of omeprazole which you took 2 months back. Since when are you taking your present daily medications?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago

Because all side effects started after i took 2 omeprazole i was off my other medication at the time.

From the last 2 months ive been on current medication

After omeprazole i was pacing around non stop walking feeling anxious and ill

Dear customer,

Thanks for your reply.

Rarely omeprazole can cause psychiatric side effects and also sleep disturbances including depression, agitation, aggression, hallucinations, confusion, nervousness, anxiety, and dream abnormalities. This is not commonly seen. However this medication may have caused these adverse effects for you. But these should not last for 2 months. Your present symptoms are most likely the adverse effects of your present medications. Hence please contact the doctor who prescribed them and tell him/her that you are having these adverse effects and he/she will take the appropriate action either reducing the dosage or replacing them with other medications. This change in dosage or discontinuing medications must be done only in consultation with your doctor.

Take care.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
