 Hi,ive always suffered fatigue as a main symptom while on PPis and tried vitamin supplements to combat it but seem to make no difference.Im currently trying Ranitidine instead of  a ppi but I still feel drowsy all day. The main problem is after I eat or drink anything I get extreme fatigue so much so that I can hardly stay awake.It takes a hour or sometimes two to get over this feeling.
 When I have came off the drugs this all disappears? Anyone out there have any ideas what might be happening or how to overcome this. Doctors havent a clue . Thanks. Barry

I've had issues where the PPI seems to amplify the affects of some other problem - the drug may not be the direct cause but just making it worse. Anaemia and low blood pressure were much harder to tolerate on a PPI than off, for me.

Have you been checked out for anaemia or diabetes? I'm sure your right and it's pure side effect, but I'm just mentioning for others benefit, that I blamed so much on drug side effect that turned out not to be! Not that I have no side effects, but the list got quite a bit shorter after I resolved my other health problems!!

Hi mudmagnetmum.ive just had full bloods done,all normal.Been checked for diabetes numerous times and I even got myself one of those glucose checking devises but nothing wrong. I do have a heart problem HOCM but this is not connected,its definitely something to do with acid suppression.
If I could just counteract it someway? Barry
