    Blood in urine and swollen neck gland
    Put on 20MG of Omeprazole after diagnosed with hiatal hernia and GERD. First 30 days I experienced blood in my urine and swollen gland on left side of my neck. I think this stuff is poison and getting off as soon as possible.

    I just posted on another page here, with the same symptoms as you. I think it is a result of magnesium deficiency. Prilosec inhibits magnesium uptake and all of these side effects seem to be due to low levels of magnesium in your body. Try a magnesiu - 14% more...
