hi i suffer from alot of acid reflux everyday and have been given omoprazole capsules dat work very well for me. i am supposed to take 1 everyday but i do not, and only take it when i get hearburn, i only go without heartburn/reflux for 2 days on a good week. i get the same problem of feeling like something stuck in my throat. does anyone know if taking omoprezoles on a daily basis is bad for you, or can cause you problems in the future?? i am 19yrs of age and have had heartburn/reflux since i was 16yrs of age. when not taking my capsule every morning i have a very bitter taste in my mouth. my doctor has recommended an endoscopy and for me to change my diet. but i have read many negative things about endoscopys (camera down throat to c stomach), and also maybe a major operation if the results are bad, both of which i do not want. any advice would be much appreciated and also an answer as to whether taking omporezole on a daily basis for my potential lifetime is fine as it does work for me, but just worried about ny problems dese capsules can cause.
