Been nearly 3 weeks off Nexium and still getting abdominal aches but not as bad. Does anyone else have the same when trying to get off PPI's?

Many of our members have posted re how to deal with the withdrawl from PPIs.  Be patient while you withdraw from Nexium.  It may take as long as three months to readjust your digestive responses.  Do talk with your Dr. re your concerns. 
Try typing in "Rebound after stopping Nexium" into our search feature and you will find older threads that speak to this topic.  However do continue posting your questions and concerns here in this thread and use the older threads FYI Only.

Is just over 3 weeks now since stopping Nexium abdominal aches have started to come back after going for a few days. Stools still not right. Booked in for colonoscopy in few weeks time. These aches cant be right what sort of drug is Nexium to be allowed on the market like this to wreck peoples lives. Have been going ok with not much reflux and adjusting my diet. How long does this last??

I stopped taking Nexium a month ago, and switched to 20 mg Prilosec. I do not have abdominal pain or IBS symptoms.
