Reclast and Omeprazole

Thank you so much for sharing your experiences. Since I last posted, I went to my GP, sort as a tie-breaker/second opinion on the Endocrinologist and GI recommendations. She said she does not like to have any of her patients on long term Omeprazole due to calcium and vitamin deficiencies it causes. She explained that my biopsy was actually inconclusive for Barretts and told me to take the Omeprazole for 3 months and ween off it. She also recommended DGL - deglycyrrhizinated Licorice tabs 1 - 2 a day, before meals, which she herself takes and recommends to other patients. With no definitive diagnosis of Barretts, and no dysplasia, she suggested Fosamax, not Reclast and is referring me to a Rheumatologist who treats osteoporosis. Since I know that I tolerated Fosamax in the past, that's probably how I'll go if the endrocrinologist or Reumatologist will prescribe it. Keeping my fingers crossed.
I sincerely hope that your problems are resolving and you are on the mend!
