Long term use of Omeprazole

WARNING I have read this week that omeprazole can, over long term use, cause magnesium deficiency. I was advised to take magnesium.

I certainly hope that I can reverse the Dexa scan results though there are no definite promises. I do however feel most strongly that there is NO quick fix to this. I was offered a 6 month injection to build bone density but I refused it, (anything that stays in your system for 6 months sounds scary to me..no reversing that! Also, a very rare fracture of the femur was listed in the small print on the net as a side effect...but it would build up bone density incredibly fast. The two put together spelled instability and brittle bone to me.

But one of the side effects of long term Prilosec dependency is B and Well no not really because I have just read that long term use of this is.

If it gets really bad, on that day, just take another Prilosec DOSE. So another 1/2 pill or 1/4 pill. And forgive yourself, and stick to plan the next day. For me, there was a lot of shuffling of split pills in my week long container. Do what you have to do, and don’t let one day’s backsliding get you off track.

In a nutshell, here’s my history. For many years I had GERD or acid reflux. Took Prilosec daily for over two years but still had reflux and grit. Also took Tums as need, slept on my left side, had a wedge to elevate my head.

Do PPIs have long-term side effects? - Harvard Health

Like every medication, PPIs occasionally cause side effects, Researchers found a link between long-term use of PPIs and hip fractures.

Obviously the respiratory and digestive tracts are quite separate, but they share a common beginning in the mouth and the back of the throat before forking into two separate "tubes". When we are lying flat while asleep, small amounts of stomach contents tend to travel up the esophagus and get into the trachea. Aspiration, as it is called, occurs even in people with perfectly healthy respiratory and digestive systems. Bacteria are more likely to proliferate in the less acidic environment created by PPIs, so in people who take these medications, this little bit of aspiration may be more likely to carry bacteria into the lungs, where they can cause pneumonia.

Yet some patients — and doctors and researchers — have wondered whether suppressing a natural process like stomach acid secretion for long periods might have unintended consequences.
