my son took cylert 15 years ago. only took it for a few months. developed stomach pains and loss of appetite at the time and this has continued to this day. His recurring stomach pain is in the morning plus nausea. It lasts for about a half hour to an hour. Has no appetite. Has tried different diets; tried eating first thing in the morning. Nothing works. Went to a doctor years ago and he told him he had Abraham Lincoln s disease. There is nothing wrong with his heart.

Diagnosed with gastritis 5 months ago, had three benign biopsies during endoscopy, was told to stay on Prilosec 20mg. Stopped daily caffeine diet soft drinks (24-32 oz a day at that time) and changed diet. Have no stomach discomfort but still had mild heartburn when I tried to stop Prilosec for a couple weeks. Do I stay on Prilosec forever? Concerned about long-term effect.
