Common Questions and Answers about Omeprazole fatigue

I have been taking Omeprazole for 2.5 months. I was diagnosed with gerd. Ever since I have been taking this drug I have been light headed nauses and fatigue. It seemed to gradualy get worse. I have been off it for 4 weeks and still feel the light headed and fatigue. Some days are better than others. It usually sticks around for a day. I have been tested ok for every thing else. Been in the ER 3 times for this concern. They say it could be anxiety?
I probably feel better having taken between 40-60 mg a day of omeprazole for the past four days. Still tire very easily though. I forgot to mention that I had been iron deficient even after six months of iron supplementation. There was blood in my stool today too (with more stomach and back pain). I'm a bit stressed that my doctor may want to do more tests. Hoping this is just gerd and lifestyle changes will fix the problem. Have been under truckloads of stress.
I've had feelings of nausea and fatigue for the past month and a half (no I'm not pregnant) and my blood results came back all normal. I'm more nauseous in the mornings, but it's a constant feeling throughout the day unless I take anti-nausea medication to help (and even that doesn't always help). The only thing the dr. said about my blood results was that my TSH was slightly high but he was pretty confident it wasn't hypothyroidism because my thryoid tested normal.
bloating I can feel a burning in my stomach as well as what feels like butterflies or more precisely my own heart beat. After consuming food I get heavy fatigue and anxiety foul fatty/flakey stools gas a sinus type headache with brain fog, can't think clearly up to 6-7 hours after meals (my impacted wisdom teeth could be causing the headache though) I often sleep too long, and when I wake up I feel like a truck hit me accompanied by joint burning type sensations (doesn't hurt but feels wierd).
First time a 7 day tablets treatment and now Nystan 4x1ml/day for 7 days. 5. No meds for this. 6. 28 days of Omeprazole 20mg (then wait to see if the pain comes back to take further actions). 7.
Another possibility is that you have acidity and gastric reflux. Try OTC omeprazole and antacids. If no relief, then do consult your PCP. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Hi there, I'm a 23 year old male student. I've been experiencing a number of sensations recently which are making a negative impact on my every day life. I am not used to this; I'm otherwise a very confident and successful individual. Most of all I've been feeling quite faint and distant all day every day - v fatigued, despite getting enough sleep and eating well. I feel like I'm in quite a severe haze all the time, shakey and disconnected.
You will need to take a combination of medications (under medical supervision) like a proton pump inhibitor such as omeprazole, lansoprazole or pantoprazole empty stomach in the morning and an antacid gel after meals for complete relief. Life style changes that will help include: Avoid heavy meals and eat frequent small meals. Avoid too much of caffeine, tea, smoking, fried food and drinks both alcoholic and non alcoholic fuzzy ones. Avoid heavy exercises within 4 hours of a heavy meal.
Thank you in advance for anyone that can offer any insight. I have not felt "healthy" for almost 2 years now. My most recent issue is that yesterday and today I have woke very fatigue after having a good nights sleep. It is to the point that I feel that my eyes are being held open and if I shut them, they feel like they are stuck to my eyeballs. I know that description sounds weird, but that is what it feels like. I equate it with being up for 24 hrs.
For the past week, I have been experiencing extreme fatigue, diarrhea and stomach pains. I can sleep for almost 24hours, wake up, and still be unbelievably tired, almost to the point of fainting. Along with my fatigure, when I am awake, I have a constant stomache. I end up having to sparatically use the toilet without much warning. In terms of my stool, it looks very flaky in nature, never anything solid and always a light light brown colour. And when I pass gas, the smell is very unpleasant.
It started a couple months ago-I have been suffering from diarrhea/loose stool, extreme fatigue, headaches/nausea/dizziness (headaches usually behind the eyes and temple areas; sleep sometimes up to 10 hours with 3-4 hour naps during the day), hot/cold flashes, extreme body aches, acid reflux....it's really odd-I went to the Doctor about a month ago and they checked my blood levels and everything and I was also required to get an ultra sound done.
Hi I am a 28 year old male, and have been having hot flashes, extreme fatigue, muscle spasms, strained voice, breathing difficulties, abdominal discomfort, gurgling in my stomach, weakness, blurred vision for about 15 years or so. I have gone to my doctor and explained what my symptoms were and he gave me some blood tests, took some urine, and did an mri, and ekg but found nothing wrong. I then went to another doctor who also did some blood tests and found that I had a positive ANA.
I am male but have morning extreme fatigue as well. I have since discovered it's my gallbladder (diagnosed it myself, Docs were of no help too they told me not to stress and try to relax. For 5 years!). Ultrasound showed no stones but HIDA scan confirmed 7% ejection fraction. My theory is, GB produces bile, which acts as a soup to break up fat and help digestion of fat. At night, the digestive track moves slower.
Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! Extreme fatigue could be due to anemia, diabetes, hypothyroidism, or due to kidney or liver problems. However since you had blood tests all these would have been ruled out. Hence the other possibilities are sleep disorders and inadequate sleep. You may appear to sleep the customary 7-8 hours and yet not get the required amount of sleep in the right pattern. Hence it is important to get sleep studies done.
There is a possibility that you have acidity or GERD or hiatal hernia. Omeprazole is a good drug to combat this. Along with it you can try over the counter antacids. However I would recommend you see a doctor and take medication under a doctor’s supervision. Avoid heavy meals. Avoid too much of caffeine, tea, fried food and drinks both alcoholic and non alcoholic fuzzy ones. Avoid heavy exercises within 4 hours of a heavy meal. Raise the head end of the bed by pillows to 30 degrees.
i would just like to say that my doctor prescribe me omeprazole and as you may or may not know, omeprazole has a lot of side effects including headaches and diarrhea... so now to the details of the question, me and my girlfriend had sex about three and a half weeks ago to be exact, for the first time. i used protection in the intercourse but she didn't used protection when she gave me oral. so i been paranoid because today i feel headaches and that feeling of getting a cold.
When doing some reading it came up that a vitamin b-12 defiency (leading to anemia) can be caused by taking omeprazole long term... I have taken omeprazole 20mg 1x a day for over a year as a preventative measure since I take so much indomethacin (I don't have GERD) So.... could I be vitamin b-12 deficient due to taking omeprazole?? I also read that b-12 deficiencies can cause canker sores... which I have begun to have again (I haven't had one for four years) Anyways...

Hi Welcome to the forum! Along with stomach flu, you have probably developed acidity and gastric reflux. Drink plenty of fluids. Take lactobacillus and curd. Eat light. Take ORS. Take over the counter antacid, Omeprazole and antiemetic (this SOS for vomiting). In all probability things should settle down in a day or two. If symptoms persist consult your PCP. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Gastroprotective therapies should be given along wit like omeprazole or misoprostol. Anti malarials, dihydroandrosterone DHEA are other options. Cutaneous lupus with photosensitivity can be treated with wearing protective clothing, tinted car glasses, avoid direct sun exposure, sunscreens with SPF 15. Fatigue, etc benefit from glucocoticoids and antimalarials. Serositis causes chest and abdominal pain responds to salicylates,NSAIDS like indomethacin etc.
While bad or poor oral hygiene can affect teeth, since you have cough, it is possible that you have a bad gastric reflux. Take Omeprazole empty stomach in morning and an antacid gel at bedtime. Refrain from smoking, alcohol, fuzzy drinks, caffeine, and spicy food Excessive fatigue can also be due to menopause/hormonal imbalance of PCOD, anemia, diabetes, hypothyroidism, or due to kidney or liver problems.
I was prescribed 20mg omeprazole about two years ago for the infrequent acid reflux, which I thought was occurring as a side effect of the adderall I was prescribed to help with the fatigue. I was taking the omeprazole every day for a while but since I was rarely having problems I started taking it only when needed. I never really have felt acid reflux was a problem for me.
my father is 78. He has fatigue, extreme shortness of breath, and nausea. He is eating very little. I started about a month ago but got worse quickly in the last week. He has a pacemaker and is on mediations for his heart also. What are some possible causes? He is seeing a doctor.
the thing is my biospy was negative for H. pylori and Negative for intestinal metaplasia. I have been feeling fatigue for over 2 years(feeling sleeps parts out the day and tried), though not horrible, more than it should be since I sleep about 7-9 hours a day. I don't feel any symptoms of gastritis expect mild, achy abdominal pain. The doctor said it was nothing but it still doesn't make sense. I was given omeprazole 40mg. but isn't that for eliminating H. pylori. I need help.
I had an emergency appendectomy 8 months ago, and up until 10 weeks ago seemed to be doing fine. My doctor put me on omeprazole and said I'll be fine in two months, but it's not helping so far and the symptoms scare me. I asked her if an endoscopy was an option, and she said that a gastroenterologist would want me to wait two months to take the omeprazole anyway. Any similar experiences?????
nswitch it on for 30 min and that's it, besides the warmth there might or might be any sensation while the machine does its work. My fatigue has gone down significantly, I barely need a cat-nap when compared to hours of afternoon rest & still feeling tired. My fibromyalgia pains are almost gone. Now I can wake-up without morning stiffness in my palms & feet, without back pain, get out of bed and walk right away! My ankles don't hurt as much.
I was given Zegrid (Omeprazole) for my esophageal ulcers due to acid reflux and experienced severe muscle fatigue that took about a week to clear after stopping, took again and fatigue returned. I started taking Zantac 150 and it seemed okay but I started have occasional nausea and sharp pains in the stomach area. My Internal Medicine doctor advised the ulcer is being aggravated by the acid which is causing nausea and pain, the Zantac was not strong enough.
Hello, It can be pityriasis rosea. Pityriasis rosea is a common human skin disease which presents as numerous patches of pink or red oval rash. The rash may be accompanied by low-grade headache, fever, nausea and fatigue and itching. Topical and oral steroids are needed. Water, sweat, and soap may cause irritation and should be avoided in the disease. Topical zinc oxide and calamine lotion are useful for pruritus. A dermatologist’s evaluation will be the best.
Nausea, feeling like you want to vomit,fatigue,pressure in the head and tiredness?
However they could also be due to severe acidity and gastric reflux. Take antacid gel and Omeprazole and see if it helps. Along with that the blood levels of the following should be checked: potassium, calcium, sodium, magnesium, vitamin B complex, or vitamins B1, B3, or B6 and Vitamin D. Get your kidney function, parathyroid gland function and adrenal function tests done because these affect the electrolyte balance in the body. Stress, alcohol, caffeine and fatigue all cause similar symptoms.
