A member asked:

What are the effects of proton pump inhibitors used long term? prescription omeprazole, 40mgm sig 1 cap daily

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Malabsorption: The major concern with long-term use is poor absorption of nutrients such as magnesium and many vitamins. Stomach is there for a purpose - it helps in the digestive process. I'd suggest at least annual monitoring by your doctor with blood tests.
