Will taking 40mg of omeprazole give you nausea? How long does it take at that dose to leave the body?

Omeprazole: Omeprazole blocks acid secretion by the stomach but nausea would be a most unusual side effect in my long experience prescribing it. Generally a dose is prescribed for once daily consistent with a 24 hour effect. In your case, if this reaction occurs every time you take it, it is a bone fide side effect. Your pharmacist may have more information about this matter. Zantac may be better tolerated. ...Read more

I have been prescribed omeprazole 20mg, it that to strong of a dose, as I don't have many bouts with reflux and heartburn as I originally did?

The usual dose.: 20 mg of omeprazole is an average dose. Very often patients need to remain on maintenance therapy to keep acid reflux under control. A lot of patients who cut back the dose or discontinue it will have their symptoms recur rather promptly. Talk to your doctor about how long you should stay on the medicine. Antireflux measures help also. Good luck. ...Read more

My baby has s/reflux he's on losec (omeprazole) he has bad cough and phlegm he dose not have asmah dr gave him ventolin syrup to clear up the cough 3 ml 2 time day?

Viral Bronchiolitis?: I think your baby may have a viral bronchiolitis (cold with deep cough/wheeze). Treatment is a bit controversial. Some will use saline for the nose (spray/drops) and many will opt for asthma like care. Oral albuterol has grown out of favor for nebulizer treatments in the us. Albuterol is probably the main medication give via aerosol 3-4 times daily to help the cough and congestion. ...Read more

Dose silent reflux in a baby cause a cough and phlegm in throat with frothy texture in a 4.5 month old baby he's on losec (omeprazole) but I can't get rid of cough?

Dose silent reflux in a baby cause a cough and phlegm in throat with frothy texture in a 4.5 month old baby he's on losec (omeprazole) but I can't get rid of cough?

It can: Reflux in infants is a common trigger for a cough. The Prilosec decreases stomach acid and may decrease irritation, but it does not stop the reflux, it just makes it less painful. With time and gradual assumption of an upright posture for more hours/day, the reflux and related cough decreases. It iften peaks around the 4-5 month period. ...Read more
