I occasionally have outbreaks of Rosacea. I may be experiencing one now. Can this cause the above problems? Especially with dizziness?

Some of the symptoms and drugs I added are not 100 percent correct I just could not find them in the drop downs. I just selected what I thought was closest.
From this study (2 months ago):
I have been on omeprazole for four days at first I felt very exhausted and sometimes dizzy now taking half of recommended dose of 20 mg also only taking 75 mg ranitidine instead of 300mg as I was getting dizzy and did not know which drug causing it. Generally not feeling well. I had been taking esomaprazole previously
which also made me feel quite unwell
