Hello my friends,
Its my first time here...I have heartburns for over 7 years, and I take 20mg Omeprazole every single day, first thing in the morning, for six years...I don`t even feel any heartburn at all!!! but if i forget my omeprazole at home, or if i take it and eat right after(You should wait at least 20 minutes before eating anything), then my heartburn attacks very bad!
I would like to know from you guys:
Any of you have taken this medicine for such a long time??does it have side effects??any problems related??
Because I heard there are, and many americans take it for only one month...but here in Brasil people take it without rules lol....and I`ve never heard of side effects in Brasil....
I would like to try a natural way of healing... and I would like to heal, not to mask the problem...I`ve done probably 4 endoscopy, never found H.pylori...all the doctors say my problem is in my mind...too much stress and cigarette smoking...but guess what happens if I stop smoking?? It doesn`t go away...then my problem is the beer i drink on weekends....then i stop drinking...guess what happens?? doesnt go away....then my problem is in the food mixed with juice etc....anyways, i`ll stop here because y'all can see I`ve triied everything...aloe vera, potatoes, soy, elm, pantoprazol, omeprazol, mesoprazol, Nexium, Gastrol, cabbage, kale, noni, Taro and some other stuff from our grandmas....
I even tried religion!!!!!
C'mon...if this is stress and anxiety, I have taken florals of bach from london, then I went through diazepam, bromazepam, dormonid and rivotril.....No work!!! No good!!!!
I`m sorry my friends, but I'm afraid to say that if you want to live without heartburns forever, you might need to take OMEPRAZOLE(or any other "zOLES") for the rest of your life....first thing in the morning...take 20 mknutes(minimum) to let the medicine acts...then you can eat rocks, nails and wood! This is what keep me alive...OMEPRAZOL...even thoguh I hate medicines and I hate having to take one, I have to be grateful for omeprazoles in my life....BUT I'M REALLLY SAD because I cannot live without it...I want to be normal...to have a normal life wthout drugs...I hate drugs..
If anyone knows a miracle please, get in contact
Thanks for listening...
