Eating (or not) after taking omeqrazole
My doctors told me that I have GERD, and prescribed me 20mg omeprazole 2x a day. I have been told to take it 30-60 mins before breakfast and dinner. I tried to look this up, but I can't find it anywhere, is it bad if I don't end up eating until 2 some hours after taking the meds? I work 2 jobs, and am a volunteer EMT, so my schedule is really inconsistent, and I can't always control when I eat (even when I have food sitting waiting for me!). I don't think I have had any negative side effects except gas, but I am still nauseous sometimes, and my voice is rather horse (this is the symptom that made the docs think I have GERD), so maybe the meds aren't working?
Does anyone else have trouble taking the medicine a certain time before eating?
