I have been on Prilosec OTC for 4 months now. Immediately after starting prilosec I started getting very loose stools...and have not had a normal one since. I cut the dose down to a 1/2 a pill a day.
On October 31, I started developing heart palpitations, which sent me to the ER. I then followed up wth a cardiologist and had a 30 day event heart monitor put on as well as a stress/echo. I am awaiting results, but it has been over 3 weeks now.
Anyway, I am curious if anyone know about these symptoms? It makes sense that diarrhea would/could deplete the vitamins in the body thus cause heart palpitations.
I'm so desperate, none of the Drs seem to be concerned. Even my Gastroenterologist was like "hmmm, well you can stop your prilosec", but you are FINE, everything is fine.
