Taking Citalopram (20mg) and zyprexa (olanzapine) (2.5mg) and have sulphur smelling gas every night. Eating more, can a change in diet cause this bad smelling gas?

Side effects?: I don't believe that any of those meds are the direct culprit of your discomfort.

Many people on medications that might cause a metabolic syndrome are advised to consult with nutritionists to solve the problem. I suggest to consider this recommendation. ...Read more

Bad taste in my mouth and bad smelling gas. Would guess that it is Sulphur.?

Highly unlikely: Most often when we produce malodorous gas it's a result of the things we eat. In some cases, flatulence can be malodorous due to bacterial production of methane gas in our colons, if we are colonized with certain bacteria. Sometimes a bad taste in the mouth can be due to tooth decay, tonsil stones or even medications. When in doubt, keep a food diary, keep oral hygiene healthy and see doctor 4help ...Read more

I am having sulfer tasting burps, gas, and very watery diarrhea. What could be causing this? I take prilosec, so I don't want to take anything else.

I am having sulfer tasting burps, gas, and very watery diarrhea. What could be causing this? I take prilosec, so I don't want to take anything else.

PRILOSEC CAUSES!!!: Prilosec may be causing this. Gas is caused by bacteria in our intestines fermenting undigested food. Prilosec interferes with digestion by blocking production of hydrochloric acid which is essential to proper digestion. It's proven to cause imbalances of our flora ; increases risk of c. Dificile, a life-threatening infection whose main symptom is diarrhea. See http://bit. Ly/1b1avqs for details. ...Read more

Likely Gallbladder: Great question: foul smelling bowel movements is a product of a change in bacteria. The most likely source is a change in the biliary system or pancreatic system from gallstones (gallbladder attack); especially if the pain is more in the upper right.
