Hi, my name is IammrsP!

I have been taking Omeprazole for 18 years and, whilst researching Diabetes for my husband I encountered many posts about Omeprazole. Things that I have assumed are due to the ageing process are perhaps caused by the drug. This is the start of my journey of discovery.

    I’d strongly advise you see your GP about possible side effects.
