Sat, Feb 16 4:23pm · Getting Off of Omeprazole in Digestive Health

I agree, I hope those newer findings are correct. I am now down to 40mg of omeprozole every 3rd or 4th day with a Zantac when needed. It's slow going to get off. I tried too quickly in the beginning and the rebound was awful. Fingers crossed for good outcomes for all of us.

@lou_cards79 gas wasnt a side affect for me. I have been on the med for probably 15 years. I have weaned myself to 40mg every third day with zantac as my in between when needed. Good luck and try to find a way off. My Dr told me Dementia is linked to this drug which is why he wants me off.

Thank you !! I am definitely willing to give essential oils a try. Can't believe i didn't think of that. I also follow Dr. Axe and like his advice. Again thank you for this lead 🙂

I take 40mg omeprozole every 3 days with zantac in between if needed. Dr wants me off omeprozole because it is linked to dementia and I have been on a ton of different antacids for the past 20 years. I have done some research and some articles say it is the lack of acid in the stomach that causes heartburn/gerd. They even suggest using betaine hcl with every meal which creates acid in the stomach to help breakdown food. They also talk about a large amount of people diagnosed with heartburn and gerd actually have bad bacteria growing in your intestines that thrive in low acid and that is the cause of heartburn. I am completely confused about my gerd now and don't know what is right. Anyone else heard of taking betaine hcl ?
