Common Questions and Answers about Omeprazole and high blood pressure

nexium

I have GERD and I have been on three different Acid Reflux (GERD) medications and all raised my blood pressure but Nexium. I have high blood pressure (hypertension) without GERD though. I am not aware of any relation between the two sickness.
I have been taking omeprazole for 4 years and it has worked great for my acid reflux problem. In March of 2013, very quickly I developed severe itchy skin. Here it is January 2014 and I am pretty sure I have one of the possible side affects of taking omeprazole, severe itchy skin. Twice in the last month I stopped taking it for a few days and believe I even had a withdrawal side affect. This was when I was just falling to sleep it felt like I could not breath.

Just took it a few minutes ago and it was 91/46. I feel okay until I take my blood pressure and then I feel sort of weak, it's hard to describe. Let me say, I've been having a ton of anxiety over my health for months now. Right now, I don't even know if some of the problems I'm having are legit or it's due to anxiety. Anxiety wouldn't account for the low bp and some of my other problems but could explain some of my issues.
Hi guys i have suffered with reflux on and off for about 7 years. Started off on omeprazole after endoscooy then inxe symptoms stopped would ease myself off them only for symptoms to come back at some point every year and so back on the meds. Last year i got some bad symotoms start up and was fed up with popping pills so tried dgl licorice with aloe vera juice instead. Worked a little but not entirely so went to doc and had another endoscopy (which came back all clear of any nastys).

You want to rule out any type of heart condition and any type of blood clot which is can kill you. I requested a D Dimer blood test among the many that they took and that came out negative. That test helps to determne if there are blood clots in your body. As far as I know, the heart, the lungs and the esophgeal can give the feeling of choking or not being able to swallow. For now it looks like I have swelling of the esophogeal and I will take a pill and cut acidic foods until I heal.
You can discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Dizziness could be due to postural hypotension (blood pressure falling with change of position), internal ear problems and cervical spondylitis or compression of cervical spinal nerves. All these cause dizziness when you get up from lying down position or when you change position that results in a change in the level of your head. Cervical spondylitis and ear problems also cause dizziness on changing the position of the neck.
First, I checked for interactions with your BC pill and Prilosec, none was noted. http://reference.medscape.com/drug-interactionchecker In looking elsewhere, I did see the following under possible side effects. "Side effects of Prilosec (Omeprazole) have been reported to include. Rarely: Cardiovascular: Chest pain or angina, tachycardia, bradycardia, palpitations, elevated blood pressure, peripheral edema.
Underactive thyroid, anemia and diabetes too should be ruled out. High blood pressure is another possibility. It also sounds like chronic fatigue syndrome. This presents with widespread myalgia and arthralgia, cognitive difficulties, chronic mental and physical exhaustion,headaches and concentration difficulty and memory problems. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. A comprehensive investigation is required keeping all the points in mind.
I am a male 52 years old and I have high blood pressure. I been having discomfort on the sign of my neck and my throat fills dry.
The usual right sided pain coming and going – when I was walking to and from P. I stopped taking the omeprazole as it didn’t appear to be working and last thing I feel I need if I have anything to do with nerves is a medication that depletes vitamin B 12, one of its side effects. Horrible intermittent sensations in chest and throat (either side of windpipe) that can last for up to or over an hour. Difficult to describe – internal quivering/discomfort almost pain. Also under ribs on both sides.
At the time I am and still am taking Procardia Xl for my High BP. And Qvar inhailer because I am a smoker. for 10 years. And prilosic for my heartburn. Then I started having a hard time breathing.

If your blood tests are normal then the symptoms could be due to high/low blood pressure, bad gastric reflux or pinched nerve in the cervical spine. Take Omeprazole empty stomach in morning and an antacid gel at bedtime. Refrain from smoking, alcohol, fuzzy drinks and spicy food. Eat at regular intervals. Use a hard bed to sleep. Avoid a pillow. Roll a towel and place it under your neck while sleeping on the back and between head and shoulder when lying on the side.
sounds like low blood pressure try something like a coke to keep it up also the caffeine should help
CFS pressure was high because I am over weight (6'2 275lbs) Memory loss is due to a vitamin B12 deficiency Vitamin B12 deficiency was due to long term use of Omeprazole To fix this he perscribed me Acetazolamide twice a day Nortriptyline once a day Vitamin B12 once a day Continue Omeprazole once a day Continue Allegra once a day And to follow up with my Primary care physician I don't feel like I was given a good enough reason for the CFS pressure to be so high and the reason being is I may be
I had never heard that before, but she said she could hear it. In 2006 I was told I have high blood pressure and was put on lisinopril/hctz. In 2007 I was having a lot shortness of breath. I had a stress test and my heart went into an abnormal rythym and I passed out. I was told I had LBBB and I had an angiogram. The angiogram turned out clear. I still get the shortness of breath and I am tired a LOT. Everyone seems to discount this and says I'm fine.
The holter only showed I had some 700+ palpitations. Blood work was fine. I started Metoprolol ER 100 mg once a day for High blood pressure and the doctor believed this would also help the palpitations by slowing the heart and help with the anxiety? This worked for about 2 years, I had the palpitations but where not crazy like the 700+ maybe 30-70 a day if I could feel them.
I had some blood tests to check thyroid and it all checked out normal. I had trouble with a hiatal hernia and possible ulcer about 3 months ago but that seems to be under control. I was given carafate so I may start that again. It's a hard one to get all the dose's in on an empty stomach. I have always wondered about goiter or thyroid nodules growing inward too. I guess I'll ask. I may bypass my primary doc and get an appointment with the doc who diagnosed my gall bladder problem.
You will also need blood tests to monitor your kidney and liver function, blood sugar, blood clotting, blood cells, levels of salts (electrolytes, eg potassium), and amount of the medicine in your blood. Measuring the level of medicine in your blood helps your doctor to prescribe you the correct dose. If you get diarrhoea during treatment, this can affect the amount of medicine in your blood and extra monitoring of your tacrolimus blood level is recommended.
I've had issues with fainting for a good few years (especially upon standing) but I've always figured it was blood pressure related. Plus, I'm a bit underweight and find it difficult to eat as much as I should, so probably just related to that. Unlike your passing out which seemed to be very serious. I have not really had any eye issues either. I sometimes get occular migraines (I think) and, what I presume are, floaters, but no vision loss.
I've tried everything I can think of to get some relief -decongestant sprays, antihistamines, cough medicines, anti-mucus (carbocysteine) and oral steroids (predisolone) some of which are risky with high blood pressure.
I do have problems with acid reflux, and have for a long time. I'm on a 20mg dosage of Omeprazole per day, and even that doesn't help all the time. Around 4 years ago, I went to the ER for bad pain in my right side. They ran a few tests, and the doctor seemed to think I had a bout of colitis. I ended up consulting a Gastro about the problems, and ended up getting a colonoscopy, as well as endoscopy, neither of which showed any problems in the slightest.
Due to the throat issues (insist it is GERD) both GI and ENT docs suggested Omeprazole. I cut down on that now and take it now and then, never noticed it made a difference. The GI doctor is young and, to his credit, did several tests and biopsies on me. He eventually referred me to a motility specialist over 2 hrs away. This really too long to explain. They said I had some motility problems and put me on Prozac and wanted me on BP meds. My Internist here said no as my BP is low.
They haven't actually inserted anything into my body, like a camera, to look at the walls of my bowels but they have done a Kat scan, felt my ovaries, and tested my blood and urine. Fortunately they could not find a thing and ended up giving me pain meds for an unknown muscle issue. To get to the point, I finally decided to go a different route. I picked out an Alternative Medicine Doctor. (Who I found over the internet).
in last 2 years, 50 more to go), Non-Smoker, Non-Drinker I woke up 3 months ago with no feeling in my left arm and a numb face. I checked my blood pressure, and it was very high. So, I went to the ER. I was admitted and consulted with a neurologist. I had a cat scan, MRI, MRA, EKG, EEG and labs. Everything was normal, except slightly hypo thyroid numbers. I was dismissed and followed up with my PCP. He wondered about anxiety, but I tested negative for it on his questionnaire.
But no ekg or anything they suggested see a mental health person to discuss stress. they did do a blood test and all is fine. they also took BP and it is 118/68. My pulse although elevated shortly after the episodes will drop right back down to my normal range 70-80 BPM. Well here is my dillemma. I went to a DR. outside of the Kaiser organization and he did an ekg that was normal and put me on a 24 hour monitor. Durning the 24 hour monitor I had a couple of episodes.
