Is this Omeprazole?

I been on Omeprazole for 4 weeks now.

Over the last 4 or 5 days Ive had this "heavy head" feeling and "sore head" feeling . I wouldnt really describe it was a headache but more of a heavy/sore feeling.

Can Omeprazole do that or is it something else that might be causing that?

Re: Is this Omeprazole?

The answer is Omeprazole could be causing it, or it could be something else! Omeprazole causes me bad headaches, like a sort of band squeezing around the head. I never used to get headaches. The headaches are worse when I alter my dose (up or down) ie a chemical change and are not too bad when I stay level. You should be used to the chemical after 4 weeks, but drugs affect people in different ways. Headaches are common with ppis.
