Is Omeprazole safe for people with chronic kidney disease?
I am currently tapering down Prednisilone for PMR. Since the start of taking Prednisolone 6 months ago, I have also been prescribed Omeprozole to counteract possible corrosive effect on the digestive tract. However, I have recently read some warnings about long term use of Omeprazole, such as damage to kidneys, weakening of bones leading to increased danger of breakages. I already have Chronic Kidney Disease and know that steroids can lead to bone density loss, so am looking for any informed opinion on the wisdom of continuing to take omeprazole. Thanks
