    I have been on Omeprazole 20mg for about 24 years after my 4 bleeding ulcers and will probably be on it for the rest of my life.  The pharmacy switched me once to the chemically equal Esomeprazole 40mg but I started having the old reflux symptoms and they switched me back.  Although Omeprazole did not work for you, talk to your doctor about alternatives until your find one that works for you.

    It's reflUx... and those medications are ok for a short time, but they aren't good to take in the long-term.

    Maybe you could research foods to avoid if you have acid reflux. You'll find info if you google it

    Pepcid Complete works well. The generic form also works well. But you really just need to pay attention to what you eat and watch your food combinations.

    you can do a LOT for acid reFLUX simply by changing a few things.

    Raise the head end of your bed at least 8 inches, with some wooden blocks. gravity can help keep stomach acids in your stomach. Extra pillows don't work the same.

    Do NOT eat or drink the following within 4-6 hours of bedtime: spicy foods, sodas or any carbonated water, alcohol, greasy foods, pizza, tacos, or a huge heavy meal etc. Increase your intake of yogurt, the more simple the flavor the better. I opt for vanilla. ALL yogurts have good bacteria in them that is great for your stomach. Drink more plain water. Back off the caffeine and coffee. for some folks tea is also a culprit.

    How do you know the omeprozole caused the pain and not gastritis? Not changing what you eat and drink with a bad stomach is like running around on  broken leg and expecting it to heal.

    You HAVE to make some common sense changes.

    Well, there's always good old over-the-counter Tums.  But for an effective presciption drug, you should go to your doctor for advice.

    It's reflux, not reflex, and this is something you need to discuss with your doctor.
