Genoprazol belongs to a class of medications known as proton pump inhibitors. Proton pump inhibitors are used to treat gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), which is the condition in which stomach acid backs up into the esophagus and causes heartburn, chest pain, or discomfort. Omeprazole is one of several proton pump inhibitors that are available for use by patients who have been diagnosed with GERD.
Other medications in this group include lansoprazole (Prevacid), rabeprazole (Aciphex), and pantoprazole (Protonix).
Genoprazol side effect
and dizziness can also occur. The symptoms of nausea are similar to those of dizziness, but they feel different in your head. You may want to throw up or have diarrhea, but these are not the same as vomiting or diarrhea. You don’t feel sick during this period; it’s more like a feeling of pressure that builds up inside your stomach until there’s nothing left except for some gas bubbles floating around (this is called bloating). The symptoms may last for a few days after taking Genoprazol—the length depends on how much medication has been taken and how quickly it was absorbed into the body.*
You shouldn’t take Genoprazol for more than two weeks without seeing a doctor.
You should see a doctor if you take omeprazole for longer than two weeks.
If you are taking Genoprazol for longer than two weeks and have any of the following symptoms:
A feeling that your stomach feels empty or hollow
Loss of appetite or weight loss (more than 5 pounds in 2 weeks)
Nausea or vomiting that does not go away after two days.
