Omeprazole and osteoporosis

Common Questions and Answers about Omeprazole and osteoporosis


Avatar n tn I've just been diagnosed with Osteoporosis and took samples of Evista and had an allergic on the eyelids and swollen bags under the eye and drooping eyelid.... I also had this same reaction when prescribed Prevastation for high cholestrol & also again when prescribed an antibiotic " Levaquin" for a sinus infection. I finally determined it had to be a drug interaction. I've never been allergic to any drugs....
Avatar n tn I am reading a lot on the subject, experimenting with diet and relaxation and the occasional spoonful of Maalox. I relate to the person who said they felt fine until after the endoscopy. I never had this globus feeling in my throat before, and now it is there all the time, no matter what or when I eat or don't eat. THAT is stressful!
Avatar m tn Hi and welcome to the GERD forum. Long term use of ne med will have an effect on our bodies....but in order to help heal the erosion of ur esophagus u will need to take it, but ur Dr should be monitoring u and ur blood labs to make sure u have supplements like Vit D. Once u wean off these meds and it should be a slow removal as u can experience rebound if u get off too quickly.

Avatar f tn I'm impressed with the information that you located. I was wondering if you had found any information or lead me to find information in regards to keeping one's body what I call "semi-normal." I suffer from rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, and bad leg pains. I want to find something that I can eat that would help me with this but not harm my transplant. I have spoken with some nutritionists in my medical group but they are hesistant in anything that I want to try.
Avatar n tn Along with the dizziness, there is tension in the back of my head and neck. I have had a MRI- which came back negative and I have had many blood tests which were negative as well. I also recently have started feeling confused at times (its weird) and a shakey feeling. Last week I went to my doctor and they did more blod work (negative) and I had an ultrasound on my gallbladder which was negative. In a couple of weeks I am having the endoscopy test. (Which i am scared about).
Avatar m tn Along with the food allergies (wheat, dairy and soya) it makes for an interesting life. 2 days on less omeprazole and so far so good. He usually has oat milk which is fine and its been so long now that he's been off dairy it doesn't bother us. Almost 5 years. We will try the reduced dose of HC in a couple of weeks once SAT's are out the way and we know how he's going with the reduced omeprazole. The last 2 times he came off omprazole he lost a lot of weight so I am keeping an eye on that.
Avatar n tn Hi, PPI like prilosec are relatively safe medications. It is only about 2 decades since the first PPI omeprazole was introduced. So not many studies are there which discuss about the long term effects of these medications. The possible long term effects are - 1. Formation of gastric polyps 2.
Avatar n tn A sample was taken from my craw but the pathologic answer stated only the things that I've knowned, Gastritis and Duodenitis. Anyway, in this period of time I've stated taking omeprazole - 40 miligrams a day. A few days afterwards I was hspotilized. They have raised my Omeprazole from 40 MG to 80 MG and meanwhile gave me tramadol HCL for the pains. the tramadol helped, but the pain was steel pretty strong.
Avatar n tn numbness, twitching at night, trouble sleeping, depression, weight gain and that is just problems with my back and arm. I have had MRIs on my head, neck (2), back (4), CT (back), EMG (right arm), Dexa Scan (2), X-Ray (neck), Echo for tachy cardia & Bloodwork. I take Cymbalta 60mg, Omeprazole 20mg, Celebrex 200mg, Protonix 40mg, Calcium 2000mg, Fosamx 70mg, Trazodone 50mg, Skelaxin 400mg & Lortab 5. The last 3 I take as needed.
Avatar f tn It also affects the absorption of calcium, which in turn can lead to osteoporosis and fractures. Discuss your concerns with your doctor before stopping any medication. I hope it helps. Best luck and regards!
Avatar n tn I am 28 years old and have recently been diagnosed with gastroparesis following almost a year of tests. I have been taking domperidone, omeprazole and buccastem for 7 months which help a little but are by no means a miracle cure. I have lost a great deal of weight taking me down to 87lbs (BMI 15.9) and am sick/ regurgitate food at least 20 times per day. I try to eat very small meals (low fibre, low fat, no animal products) and am prescribed 2 Ensure Plus per day yet still I am struggling.
Avatar f tn I take a version of prevacid. You need to take a calcium supplement - it can strip your calcium and set you up for osteoporosis. My EGD is scheduled for mid-June. I've had it done once and it really was ok. They give you twilight anesthesia, which for me means I go into a deep sleep. if you have more questions, be sure to ask.
Avatar n tn Spoke to my gastro doctor and he said that I should stay on my omeprazole for another month to see if I feel better. I asked him would there be a chance that I have barrett's. He told me that the odds would be slim. Would you agree with that? Feels like it might be a ulcer but the last time I had an ulcer I had different symptoms. I do worry about barrett's/cancer.
Avatar m tn I saw online where it controls calcium, vitamin D and phosphorous in the blood. Another site states osteoporosis with parathyroid disease can cause bone and joint pain- often. Regarding your full sinuses- have any allergy medications helped? Have you tried saline nasal irrigations?
Avatar f tn After the injury I was only able to barely walk across the room. I too have osteoarthritis and osteoporosis. The days I don't exercise I feel worse.
974371 tn?1424656729 Hello and hope you are doing well. Understand your predicament and sorry for the late reply. The hypodense lesion could be a cyst. Simple kidney cysts are usually incidental findings. They more common as people age. An estimated 25 percent of people 40 years of age and 50 percent of people 50 years of age have simple kidney cysts. Now, the questionable solid lesion could also be due to bleeding into a cyst, it need not always be due to malignancy.
974371 tn?1424656729 I have suffered from chronic dry mouth and throat (2 biopsies Neg for Sjorgens), had major GI problems last year ( long story you can read in my other posts), night sweats or waking up clammy and nausea which I now somewhat control with acupuncture and ginger and honey. I keep telling the doctors I have seen that I just don't feel well. Any input? I sure as heck don't want a liver biopsy!
Avatar n tn Right adnexal cyst with minimal pelvic ascites (and unremarkable CT scan of kidneys, ureters and urinary bladder). Among other findings (with history of right flank pain), a hypodense focus measuring 4.0 x 2.1 x 3.0 cm is seen in the right adnexa. Also minimal free fluid in the posterior cul-de-sac. Everything else appeared normal or unremarkable. I presented the findings to my OB-Gyn, who in turn ordered transvaginal ultrasound.
Avatar f tn Over-the-counter (OTC) PPIs include Prilosec OTC (omeprazole), Zegerid OTC (omeprazole and sodium bicarbonate), and Prevacid 24HR (lansoprazole). [Posted 03/02/2011] AUDIENCE: Consumer, Gastroenterology, Family Practice ISSUE: FDA notified healthcare professionals and the public that prescription proton pump inhibitor (PPI) drugs may cause low serum magnesium levels (hypomagnesemia) if taken for prolonged periods of time (in most cases, longer than one year).
Avatar f tn Tachycardia happens mostly through the day and may or may not be present with a panic or GAD without reason. Sweating (especially at night is present) Feeling generally run down, tired, lethargic, poor concentration) Watery diarrhea has been present for at least 1 month. Upper right quadrant pain comes and goes underneath right rib cage. Chest pain or slight tightness may sometimes present. With a palpable pain on the left side of the heart as it's beating.

Avatar f tn The last time u had my B12 tested was in August 2014 and it was 475 and then in February 2015 it was tested again and it was 360 reference range 2 230-1050. So it looks like it was falling back then I don't know why would my doctor think that T4 is ok she called and said my labs were fine and if I felt fine did not need to come in..
Avatar m tn It is very possible that it is GERD /acid reflux and ur vagus nerve is being affected.....and to be safe, have ur heart checked and look to ur family medical history and rule nething like a cardio issue out. What u can do while u r on meds, is to modify ur diet and life style, this will aid the meds to help calm things down. Since u r having issues with exercise or just climbing the stairs,....listen to ur body and slowly build back up start with ur stairs....

Avatar m tn ) Vitamin B 12 is also sometimes recommended for numerous other problems, including asthma, depression, osteoporosis, and periodontal disease, but there is essentially no evidence as yet that it really works. A double-blind trial of vitamin B 12 for seasonal affective disorder (SAD—a type of depression related to lack to lack of light during the winter) failed to find evidence of benefit.
974371 tn?1424656729 I was then given Omeprazole, which is in the same class as Nexium, and I believe it upsets my stomach. The last ENT I saw at Stanford, in CA, told me to stop the drugs. They are contraindicated in people with Osteoporosis, which I have. It's a damn viscous cycle. Now, I take Tums or Pepto for stomach upset which seem to help somewhat. My B12 was checked and I was within normal ranges.
Avatar f tn Acidifying foods are bad if not balanced by good foods and exercise and cause acid re-flux.
Avatar m tn The only thing that works now is Vicodin, and obviously that's not approved for panic disorder, and thus is not an option. The summer of 2014 I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer, and I had a total thyroidectomy on Sept. 5, 2014 at the VA Hospital. I was put on thyroid replacement (Synthroid) before surgery, then put on a different one (t-4? they said it was a faster acting one) after surgery, then taken off completely for 2 weeks before oblation.
