I have noticed that I have had flare-ups of lower back pain at least twice while taking Prilosec-once in Dec and again recently after this endo and RX for 40 mg Prilosec. Heat and advil (sparingly) seem to take care of it, but I wonder if they are linked or if it is a coincidence. I didn't notice it with Dexilant which I didn't continue due to cost.
Do you think I should ask GI about this during f/u? I may be able to try Prevacid which I think is a milder form of Dexilant and see if this helps. I have had lower back pain in the past w/o a ppi, but not more than once or twice a year at most. Has anyone noticed this?
