Omeprazole: Omeprazole blocks acid secretion by the stomach but nausea would be a most unusual side effect in my long experience prescribing it.

Your pharmacist may have more information about this matter. Zantac may be better tolerated. ...Read more

Yes, but consider...: Omeprazole decreases acid in your stomach. If there is acid damage to the stomach lining, then Omeprazole speeds healing.

Call your doctor and discuss your next step. ...Read more
