I was prescribed Prilosec/Omeprazole and had the opposite effect from everyone posting. I actually had a bad acne break out 2 days after starting the medicine. It started on my forehead and eventually covered my face. Two days after my breakout I realized that the only thing I've done differently was take the Omeprazole so I stopped taking it and almost over night the acne was gone. But now I'm back to square one since the reason I was taking it was for acid reflux. I guess I'll go back to nexium and see if a bigger dose helps.View Thread
Thanks, I will try that. Maybe I was allergic to it or caused me to be allergic to something else. I don't know. But for sure I will try Zantac seeing as I don't have to dose it to see benefits.View Thread
