I open my bowel every day and I have itchy throat and dry cough for a month now. Are they related? On omeprazole 20mg. No heart burn query reflux.

In brief: Maybe

Omeprazole can cause diarrhea.
Dry cough and itching throat sound allergic. One can be allergic to anything, including omeprazole. Are you on an ACE-inhibitor (usually used for BP)? because those are typical symptoms they cause. Heart burn is the symptom reflux causes and you don't have it - because omeprazole is very good treatment for it!
