It might have been the green mint tea and the orange. Mint is a stomach irritant and oranges are high in acid. I'd suggest try leaving them out and see what happens.
With Nexium I had the ff side effects: nausea, dizziness, heart palpitations, stomach pain.
I was off Nexium for 2 days until this morning. I ate oatmeal, green mint tea and an orange. My burping and acid build up started within 30 minutes and Diarehra (sp) about
an hour after that. I took a Nexium today and called my Dr. I left a message asking about
weaning off this and maybe going back on Prilosec. I didnt gain weight on that. I've also decided to wait until I've successfully weaned off Lexapro and lowered my clonazepam before I try to wean off my PPI. I've read that both can cause upset stomach and GERD symptoms. It's always something!!
Thanks for the tip. I will lay off both and see what happens. My Dr told me to go back to the Prilosec 1x a day for now. She wants me to only wean off 1 drug at a time. I guess I can live with that. I was taking the Prilocsec 2x a day before the Nexium. I'm taking it in the morning before breakfast and then using aloe jucie in the evening after a light dinner. I have some stomch issues today but I think its the acid balance trying to set itself.
