Side effects of prilosec?
After taking 20mgs of prilosec, I became weak and shaky with some slight heartfluttering. Felt like needing to eat something right away. Could this be a side effect of the prilosec? Am also anemic from recent bloodloss caused by aspirin.

Some people do get various side effects. They may go away with continued treatment, or maybe not. Prilosec made me a little drowsy, but only for the first few days.

Re: Side effects of prilosec?
I got a little achy on Prilosec the first few days which went away but found when I stood up after sitting I would get dizzy, this part stayed with me the whole time I was on it. When I switched to Dexilant that went away so I know it was the Prilosec. Side effects can be different for everyone , given your aspirin issue and the dizziness that I felt maybe it is tied to the Prilosec. Hard to know for sure unless you quit using it and see the reaction.
