      I was on Prilosec when my t started. I researched and found the only thing for GERD that's not ototoxic is Zantac. You have to take it 2x day about 30 minutes before you eat, which is a pain to try to remember but it does work, at least it has for me. I know everybody is different.

      Was it the prilosec that caused your T? Did your t go away after quitting?

      No it didn't go away, sorry to say. I wish I had known not to take it. I'm not sure if it caused or contributed to my T but I'm sure it didn't help. Btw I found very good help for my gerd from Chris Kessler's website about stomach acid, I followed his protocols and it ended my GERD! Now if someone would just come up with a tinnitus remedy!!! Another btw, I have learned to avoid aspartame and all forms of MSG, both of which make my T just scream.

      Sorry to hear that. @Isabella 123 were you on any other meds the time your t started?

      Yes also Synthroid which is ototoxic for some and is for me. But I was exposed to some loud noise about the same time too. So I think it was a combination of things. I've since switched to Armour thyroid med and my t has gotten a lot quieter.

      @Isabella 123 do you don't think it was the omeprazole that caused it?

      I think most people don't know what caused their tinnitus except maybe a few who have defining events in their lives like explosions or rock concerts or whiplash or massive ear infections. I can't say for sure about the Prilosec but I'm not going to swallow even one more pill of it, just in case. Everyone is different, we are all affected differently. I just know for myself I am avoiding every single thing that might make mine worse. That includes the heartburn meds. Which I don't need anymore since I cured my GERD in other ways....

      I'm on it right now and it caused mine to spike really high. I've stopped taking it for one day now and its a bit better @Isabella 123

      That's great! It should be all out of your system soon. It's too bad we have to choose which of our disorders to deal with in order not to aggravate another one! Google Chris Kresser and GERD, I learned some amazing and easy and healing things there that might help you not need the Prevacid.
