  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • JRC on Sep, 26, 2014:

    I am a 47yr old male that was on Prilosec daily for approx 10 years. approx 7 years ago I ruptured my achilles , completely without any prior warning signs. Then again about 4 years ago I ruptured my bicep again completely without any warning signs. I was informed that Prilosec could be the cause and searched to find why I needed prilosec in my daily life. I fould that my need for the drug was caused by coffee consumption. I quit drinking coffe and have not had to take prilosec in several years. I am curious of the long term effects and if there is any way to reduce or reverse the side effects. I have been suffering from achilles tendon issue in my heal for the last two years.
