I was taking omeprazole 20mg when I developed delayed gastric emptying. Doctors did not realize the PPI caused the problem, so they switched PPIs and put me on Dexilant 60mg and I continued to get worse.
If you are on a low dosage PPI,.. like 20mg, you can try adding 2 to 3 TBP of Lemon juice to 4 ounces of water. Drink this right before your meal. If you notice any reduction of your symptoms, than you are dealing with slow digestion (delayed gastric emptying).
When trying to wean off this medication, I changed my diet. I ate an extremely plain diet. I ate things like baked fish, baked chicken, plain baked potato. (no dairy, no condiments, no spices on anything which means no soup either). I also avoided all the normal foods which would cause reflux. I was not using any supplements at this time.
I have been documenting my road to recovery at this link below. You will also find more information on PPIs and delayed gastric emptying at the link below:
