08 Jul 2012 I have been on this drug for almost a month. I have gained weight and am swelling. My breasts are sensitive. I have had headaches. I don't feel myself and just realized this drug is what was causing it. I can't wait for it to get out of my system.

02 Apr 2012 Omeprzole seems to generally work fine. I sometime was getting a sensitive bowel area particualrly in the liver area and stomach area when I didn't get a 'good match' of a meal with taking it. The best match was one that included a healthy dose of Psyllim Seed hull (metamucal) with it. A month or so after I changed my calcium source to Calcium Lactate my dosage has drop 1/2. The switch to Calcium Lactate was a bit more dramatic than I would have supposed. My body apparently dumped the old calcium as fast as possible, and I had to lean on Magnesium (milk of) to get rid of it and the stiffness and mild constipation generated. Now I have more clarity in thinking, am less stressed and unsually wake up more rested.

02 Apr 2012 I didn't realize that my comment on 'Evaluating..." would also show up here. Anyway, I should add, since taking Calcium Lactate it has been easier to loose weight. Not only is my appetite less, my energy level is usually slightly better than before. I also need to say that likely since I drink a lot of milk my dose for Calcium Lactate is way under the recommened dose. The old form of Calcium was much closer to recommended.

02 Apr 2012 Since I changed from the common forms of Calcium to Calcium Lactate my need for Omeprazole, my dosage has dropped 1/2. I should note that the change to Calcium Lactate was a bit more dramatic than I would have thought it would be. Apparently the body just started dumping the Carbanate form as fast as it could, as i had to lean on Magnesium (Milk of) to address the stiffness (and some constipation tendency) I had. The mouth also acquired a slight 'dirty' calcium taste at the time. My present dose of Calcium Lactate is quite low, likely due to the fact that I already drink a lot of milk. My teeth let me 'feel' when Calcium is getting low. I tend to eat everything and seem to require meat to function.
