Omeprazole: First off - unlikely at your age without underlying issues you would have an ulcer and a bleeding one at that - you would be having symptoms such as vomiting up blood. Did you undergo any testing prior to starting medications? I would finish the meds and see how you feel. If you continue with symptoms you need testing either a scope or UGI. Good luck
