Any idea what this crude is? It only started after I started aciphex in 03 - and then only occasionally. I didn't think much of it. Then in 04 I switched to omeprazole and the white foam was more frequent. 05 - same story. now I've quit the ppi, thinking the white foam would stop. (I am also very naseous when it happens and food has NO appeal.) I've been off the ppi for about a month (cold turkey - probably not the best idea) and I'm still suffering. The only thing that seems to help is time - about two days!!! Sometimes throwing up everything in my stomach gives me a little relief, but that can't be good to keep doing.
I stopped the omperazole because it seemed to have lost effectiveness and I'm already taking a TON of pills.
Any idea what this is and why it happens? What causes it? I need to be able to eat or my UC gets unbearable...
Thanks in advance.
