Yea, I am a bit confused on that too...I was on Prilosec back in the day for about
2 years, or so, and I was never constipated, and it never damaged my intestines.
In fact, the most common side effects of Prilosec are...
Abdominal pain, diarrhea, headache, nausea, vomiting
So, yes to the lower abdominal pain, but no, I see nothing about
being constipated. Have you ever noticed an issue with constipation before now? I know you posted this a couple days ago, how are you feeling now?
You can take the advice that Inder gave you on eating more fiber and stuff like that, but in my honest opinion, your constipation has nothing to do with your Prilosec. Should it presist, please contact your doctor.
Have a great day! Please let us know how you are doing.
