I´ve prescribed Omeprazole to many patients. None of them suffered from dizziness and confusion as a result, but last week I prescribed Omeprazole to an old woman with gastroesophageal reflux disease and then she started with dizziness and confusion. She thinks it is related to Omeprazole treatment. Indeed I´ve checked the package leaflet and it comes in the first line. Of course, I discontinued the treatment. However, I am still reluctant to accept this as the only cause of the symptoms.
Have you ever had a patient with these side effects?
