Can PPI's cause Kidney Stones? (Prilosec)
I started a prescription of prilosec in April, and was rushed to the ER last Thursday because of a kidney stone. I have 2 I am told. I just find it odd that I now have stones. To be fair though the last month has been crazy hell for me. Moving, taking care of my mother, trying to move out of my apartment in a small time frame, by myself. No vehicle so I had to rush back and forth from old, new, and moms apartments constantly. Didnt take good care of myself.. drank far too much soda, lots of heat. SO, perhaps its not the prilo but I still wonder.
I stopped the prilo Friday, but had a big flare up last night, so I started again. Woke up ok.. but I am flaring up as I write this. Will the prilo never work again for me because I stopped them? Do you think they are the cause of the stones?
