Prilosec was causing me all kinds of problems . Restless leg syndrome , panic attacks . Heart rate went up to 147 . Which they gave me Valium for . I stopped the Prilosec 3 weeks ago and I have not had any major problems for the last week . Weaned off the Valium and today did not take any . It was hard getting off the Prilosec because of the rebound but I just made up my mind I wanted my life back . Funny thing was I never had my stomach hurt nor burn until I started it . It was my colon that hurt ! I will warn you though that PPIs cause low magnesium and it stays in your blood for weeks after you stop taking it .
My husband went to same dr for chest pain and shortness of breath , he has a faulty valve , and she gave him a script
for Prilosec !!!!! Plus echo of his heart next week . What in the world !! Do they just give out this poison for every illness
