What are the side effects of omeprazole capsules?

I am prescribed 40mg omeprazole each day, without thinking I accidently took two pills about an hour a part, (forgot that I had alredy taken one) should I be concerned? I am 45, and weigh approximately 220 lbs, and have been on prescription omeprazole since 2005.

Hi,

No, this is not a problem, do not worry. In some cases of more severe disease this medicine is taken twice a day anyway.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
