Common Questions and Answers about Omeprazole insomnia


Avatar n tn I am taking 20 mg of omeprazole daily. I have a hiatal hernia which causes coughing, but no other side effects from the hernia. I started the medication 3 weeks ago, and have developed insomnia. Could the medication be causing my sleeplessness?
581954 tn?1223395096 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?
Avatar f tn I'm also taking 10 mg. of Lexapro daily and 20mg of Omeprazole daily, plus calcium vitamin D and a multi-vitamin when I remember. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Of course, I plan to follow up with my doctor, as I said this is very early on, I only started this med six days ago. Thanks.
410221 tn?1227635437 I have tried just about everything for insomnia. I have taken Ambien in the past and that is just not an option anymore. I will not take an addictive drug so...I'm looking for a safe alternative and have tried the melatonan (spell?) Valerian root, tylenol PM Nyquil, sleepy times tea etc.
Avatar n tn I have been prescribed OMEPRAZOLE 20 mg capsule for my gastro problem, i.e keep burping and discomfort in sternum and around side and back, also constant bloating. I am on my third day and the burping is slowly disappearing and also the discomfort in my sternum has gone. I am so so so so happy. But I was wonderig how long for it to work completely as I am only on my third day and have been told to take the whole 28 days worth. I would appreciate any advice.
Avatar f tn I had a colonoscopy/Endoscopy done a couple of months ago and the GI doctor found that I had Hiatus Hernia/GERD...prescribed Omeprazole which was making me very sickly everyday, Dexilant was great but my insurance won't cover I am on Nexium. Not working either. I am constantly nauseated, severe heartburn, shortness of breathe sometimes, I am constantly light headed, insomnia, pain in the upper right rib cage..
709686 tn?1277435759 Im really hoping someone will respond with similar information as I seem to have doctors confused. I have severe acid reflux due to overuse of NSAIDS. Over the past year I have developed some strange side effects to Omeprazole (prilosec & Zegerid) but I seem to tollerate Protonix just fine. Here is a list of problmes I developed: 1) Weight loss. Up to 15lbs in one month. 2) Sore and swollen gums. So bad...the only thing I could eat was scrambled eggs.
Avatar f tn Hello, The most common side effects of sertraline are sleepiness, nervousness, insomnia, dizziness, nausea and upset stomach. So your giddiness may be a side effect of the drug. Consult your doctor for changing the antidepressant or timing the antidepressant so that it does not cause giddiness like you may take the drug 2 hours after meals or get a PPI inhibitor like Omeprazole added to your prescription drugs.
Avatar f tn First of all, I am a 34 year old female who is a long time sufferer of depression. I have been experiencing pressure headaches in the occipital lobe for a long time now. The headaches were sporadic and not too bothersome before. Lately I have been experiencing the on a daily basis and have kept a short diary of them. The pain varies from like pressure throbbing, to sometimes feeling like there is a string being pulled through my brain and skull in the same area.
Avatar f tn about it, which caused us to discuss all my symptoms that led to me being on omeprazole and Tecta.
Avatar m tn I started taking Vitamin D which has helped the pain and my insomnia to a degree, but occasionally I do have issues with it and now they just tingle from time to time. Also Lately the nausea has been becoming more frequent. Ive looked online to see what may be the cause but I havent found anything that matches all my symptoms. Also I have issues with most pain medications as they cause me to become more nauseous.
Avatar f tn sleep problems (insomnia);decreased sex drive, impotence, or difficulty having an orgasm; or swollen or tender breasts (in men);nausea, vomiting, stomach pain; or diarrhea or constipation so yes those are some of the side effects your having. I have the chest pains, tender breasts and dizziness it ***** to.
Avatar n tn Everybody is different. I can tell you what has been my experience. INSOMNIA! I have more insomnia when I've come off of my treatments than I did when I was on them. Also, about 1 week off of my treatments, I got a big appetite back because food tastes so much better. I don't wheeze like I did on treatment so I can exercise harder. But, also, I have never cleared on any of my treatments. I wonder if that makes a difference in how you feel afterwards?
Avatar n tn I've become slightly worried. Also I have crazy insomnia and I don't eat properly. If anyone has any idea I would appreciate your input.
1465641 tn?1286256425 Yes it can cause increased appetite along with shakiness, palpitations, and insomnia, which are caused by excessive amount of the levothyroxine. You probably need to let your doctor know what you are experiencing including the headache which I'm pretty sure is probably also related, so he/she can check your levels and possibly adjust your dosage. The higher than normal temp which you didn't say how high, if like 99 could be associated with an increase in blood pressure possibly from the med.

201897 tn?1245845934 Zith, Ceftin, Malarone, Probenecid, Planquenil, Nystatin, thyroid meds, and omeprazole (for reflux), and Somnolin (for insomnia). Yeesh! On the bright side, she said taking away my 1-2 cups of coffee in the mornings would be cruel. :-D As far as other symptoms go, been holding steady lately. Neck, shoulder, back, hip, and knee pain have been there, but managable. Short term memory lapses have been happening more often, as well as trouble with word finding and spoonerisms.
Avatar n tn The omeprazole was prescribed by my doc for esophagitis. What tests need to be done to evaluate the issue that you described above. I mentioned this to my GI doc and she said it was nothing. No tests were done no follow up whatsoever.
433485 tn?1321816990 One brother actually was foolish enough to ignore it and put up with the pain that he developed ulcers, which have mostly healed now that he is taking Omeprazole and such. My Intestines also get worked up in a knot with pain at times. I've woken up in the middle of the night after forgetting to eat before sleep with HORRIBLE acid pain. I'll drink down a glass of water/alka-seltzer and sometimes throw up everything because it hurts so bad. I can even taste how acidic the vomit is.
Avatar m tn I spent two days in the hospital and was on Nexium those two days. I was sent home with a prescription for Omeprazole and was told that I had GERD. I began experience Malaise and Myalgia and an impaired digestive system, and was thinking that whatever this GERD was it was really bad. The muscle pain became really intense so my doctor prescribed HYDROCODONE. This medication caused me to experience Insomnia - literally "wide-awake" all night and no relief from myalgia.
220282 tn?1214322419 my son has acid reflux he's now 28 month and his medications for it are domperidone x4, omeprazole x2 and infant gaviscone he's due to go into hospital for a feeding peg and his doctor has recommended having another proceedure at the same time to help with his reflux does anyone know if this proceedure works and are there any draw backs?
Avatar f tn I took the drug by the new manufacturer for roughly 10 days before understanding that I was experiencing withdrawal and switching back to my original manufacturer. I'm on omeprazole as well, for GERD, which I understand can increase the amount of benzodiazepine in the blood.
Avatar n tn Heart palpitations, nausea, bloating, some vomiting, feeling full after eating, tremors (only two episodes) and insomnia. Have had heart checked out and all kinds of blood work performed. I now have high blood pressure which I take medication for and the heart palpitations went away. But now when I eat anything I get nauseated and bloated and the soft stools with occasional days of constipation and now have crampy discomfort in lower right side.
Avatar m tn Ambien is good choice for treatment of insomnia. Ambien is intended for short-term use. Elavil/Endep. has sedative effects and is non-addictive. Also get a sleep test done to know present status. Do take Omeprazole. Keep updating your thoughts. Take care.
Avatar n tn heart palpitation (after having food and after evacuate the stool) 5. fatigue 6. Insomnia. Last year, both endoscopy and colonoscopy has been taken for me. But reports are normal. Doctor advise me Mebaspa (mebeverine hydrochloride - 135mg.), Libotryp (Amitriptyline,5 mg chlordiazepoxide hydrochloride and 2.5 mg clidinium bromide), Tegibs (tegaserod maleate - 6mg), Vizylac, Omeprazole. But,I am not satisfied the above treatment. Problems are still remain.
Avatar f tn I believe it may have brought the pain down a notch for a day or so, but it came back with a vengeance. I have taken Ambien/zolpidem for 5 years due to chronic insomnia. I also take atenolol, vitamin supplements, and omeprazole, and one baby aspirin a day. I had a gastric bypass five years ago, and a face/neck lift four years ago. I have degenerative disk disease in my lower cervical spine, the disks above it are all "perfect" according to my orthopedist, who did a recent film.
Avatar n tn I read about those effects of Reglan and I was getting depressed and started to have insomnia but that started immediately after reading stuff on the internet about Barrett's and before I filled my prescription 2 days later. I also have been very tired but for the twelfth straight day I've woke up after 3-4 hours of sleep and haven't been able to sleep again. Workouts on the treadmill I breezed through seemed a bit harder but again I was very tired before I began. Reglan or stress?
Avatar f tn This got worse and was accompanied by a general feeling of malaise - tiredness, dizziness, palpitations, insomnia, headaches and an inability to focus. I would also suffer from the sudden onset of anxiety and panic for no apparent reason and would go extremely tense and be unable to relax for several hours. It was on one such occassion that I ended up in A&E as I felt so unwell.
Avatar f tn Sensitivity to the sun - my eyes water when I go outside in the sun. Insomnia. Tenderness in backs of legs - probably nothing thyroid related. Cold intolerance. Cravings for sweet and salty foods. Puffy eyes. Dry eyes. Heavy, light, painful, late, early, long, short, irregular periods. Low basal body temp - at best my temp first thing is about 33.5 degrees Celsius but I don't shiver. Sweating. Dry and pale skin. Dark rings under eyes. Constipation. Slow and weak pulse.
