From this study (3 weeks ago):
I have taken omeprazole for a few years for acid reflux that's occurs daily at all tines during the day. After using short term ppi like tuna I eventually moved to one a days. I use generic brand omeprazole. I stopped taking it after reading side effects my reflux is still there but not as severe as before but what may be coincidence I started having blood in my stool. Bright red both in the stool and on toilet paper sometimes I only release blood instead of stool. I have stomach cramps now. This problem has lasted for a couple weeks now getting worse as far as cramps. It does not appear to be a lot of blood which is hard to notice because any small amount turns the water red. If I were to guess the amount I would say about ten drops sometimes worse and sometimes none at all.
