Stay the course: Continue to go to your doctor and give your medication some time to work. Call your doctor and tell him or her that your omeprazole is not working. Ask for a referral to a Gastroenterologist and to a Cardiologist. Try to stay calm, sometimes a complex problem may require more than one visit before the physicians work through a differential diagnosis, order tests, and optimize your medication.
