Do all ppis have insomnia as a side effect? Taking Prilosec for gastritis; it caused insomnia even though taking lunesta (eszopiclone) for primary insomnia. Thanks.
Unlikely: Just about any medication could theoretically affect your sleep however often the side effects listed for drugs come from things patients report during clinical trials which may or may not be from the drug.

Some sample packs of prevacid and naprosyn (naproxen) for controlling arthritis withoutthis all in my head or can insomnia be a side effect of prilosec?
For a short period: Like nearly all meds Prilosec has many side effects but it is well-tolerated by most.
