Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Did these symptoms start after you started taking prilosec?
Prilosec is known to cause diarrhea and facial skin inflammation as side effects. Hence you should discontinue prilosec. Since you do not have any stomach ulcer, you do not really need prilosec. Ranitidine can be taken as substitute.
Please discuss with your doctor also.
