My daughter gets nausea in the morning. Her doc prescribed prilosec. One in morning before eating. That was a week ago. She still has it. Blood work ok?

Kids often nauseated: Depending on the age of your daughter, her nausea may be "functional", "central", infectious, gynecologic or other non-gi causes. If her nausea is GI related and not responding to low-dose prilosec, she may either need a bigger dose of acid-blocker medicine or investigation of the gallbladder, liver, pancreas, gastric outlet, as well as small and large bowel. Time to see her doctor for testing. ...Read more

Why does a stomach ulcer from taking to much NSAIDs cause positive occult blood test, nausea, & mild cramping. Hgb is stable. Dr. said to up Prilosec?

Why does a stomach ulcer from taking to much NSAIDs cause positive occult blood test, nausea, & mild cramping. Hgb is stable. Dr. said to up Prilosec?

Ulcers can bleed.: The main answer would be that ulcers can bleed. And when they bleed, the released blood travels quickly through the GI tract and mixes with your stool, so that it reveals itself in a stool occult blood test. Nausea and cramping also go along with an ulcer. ...Read more

I have had some voice change and hoarseness. For about 3 weeks I don't feel sick now but was sick a week ago. I take Prilosec for gerd. Should I worry?

I have had some voice change and hoarseness. For about 3 weeks I don't feel sick now but was sick a week ago. I take Prilosec for gerd. Should I worry?

Possible LERD?: Exposure of the vocal cords to stomach acid & pepsin will result in inflammation of the vocal cords (as is also often seen with acid regurgitation) = lerd. Acute laryngitis may result, but watch out for chronic hoarseness, throat clearing, airway spasms, cough, bronchitis, an asthma-type presentation, & even a higher risk of throat cancer. May however not be reflux so please get yourself checked. ...Read more

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

Can omeprazole cause nausea after eating?

Can omeprazole cause nausea after eating?

Yes, but consider...: Omeprazole decreases acid in your stomach. If there is acid damage to the stomach lining, then Omeprazole speeds healing. If your response to Omeprazole has been disappointing then either: 1) the dose is too low; 2) there is significant damage that needs a longer time to heal; 3) your problem is not acid-related and further investigation is warranted. Call your doctor and discuss your next step. ...Read more
